“Unique, eclectic atmosphere along with great food!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The Driftless Cafe had every table filled within 15 minutes of our arrival at 6;30 p.m. on a sultry summer Thurs. evening. Live entertainment (mandolin, guitar, 2 singers) served as the perfect background music. The manager was setting up folding tables outdoors as we were leaving to try to accommodate the overflow of patrons.

My husband and I had the Chicken Alfredo pizza, and it was one of the best we've ever tasted! We started with the house salad, which was extraordinary in itself. It contained sprouts, roasted garbanzo beans, very thinly sliced beets and cucumbers and arugula. For those of you who prefer the more traditional type of "house" salad, don't think this is too risky. The blend of flavors was perfect, and 2 different salad dressings were brought to our table because we couldn't decide among the unique homemade dressings. We bought 2 homemade desserts (chocolate cake, and a chocolate frosted strawberry cookie) to bring back to our Bed and Breakfast. Both were fresh, moist, and provided the perfect end to a very good dinner.

Jennifer, our server, was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, and someone who made you feel you had known her all your life. Thank you, Jennifer, for your outstanding service and for making us feel right at home.

Relax, smile, and enjoy...you are at the Driftless Cafe, and everything just seems to fall into place!

“Creative, locally sourced food”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Well prepared food, served by friendly wait-staff. There was entertainment... two singers who accompanied themselves on a mandolin and guitar. Everyone seemed happy and the food tasted wonderful
