My family and I had lunch there on Saturday. We all ordered something different including 3 kid meals, breakfast items, sandwiches, specials, Mac & Cheese. Everything was prepared very well, lovely presentation, and tasted great. There is room for improvement in the service. We waited a long time to be acknowledged when we arrived. Long time to be seated even though there were tables available. Server did not come back to check if everything was ok after our food was served. No refills on our water. Very nice person but could have been a bit more attentive.

We usually lunch here during our annual visits to LaCrosse-food is decent, great atmosphere, good service! We were there today-it took an hour and forty five minutes to get sandwiches!
The service was simply bad-getting water was a big problem-the check out lady was rather abrupt!

Thank alumnus

I love this place!!! I mentioned that my daughter can't eat gluten. The response was "You are in the right place." I was told this bistro can accommodate the top 8 allergens (and probably others if asked). The food tasted great, too. My daughter chose a sandwich with gluten-free bread and a gluten-free pancake as her "side" dish.

Thanks for the excellent review! We make it a point to accommodate for as many dietary needs as possible, so you certainly were in the right place. Our summer menu just came out this month, so you've got plenty of opportunity to try other seasonal, gluten-free dishes before we switch it up for autumn. Thanks for coming by—hopefully we'll see you soon!

Hackberry's is located across from the Farmer's Market and above the Food Coop, which gives a hint as to the kind of food to expect. It offers fresh, healthy foods with whole grain and gluten free offerings.

Thanks for the great review! You hit the nail on the head—thanks for calling out the fresh, healthy foods with whole grain and gluten free offerings. We're also really big on local and organic, and therefore sustainability. Come see us for the fall menu beginning in September!
