We went down hear for a coffee and found a place to go back to for other things. Can't wait to go back for the food. The coffee was great and the atmosphere was very good for adults. Not really a kid place. Will be back.

Acoustic Cafe is great for a quick lunch and dining on a budget. It's also a great spot to meet up with colleagues to work on projects or to hang solo and get a lot of work done. The hoagies are delicious with their special sauce, I always add sprouts to mine! The Menomonie location has Cheer (Chili and Beer... More

I've been here several times when I've been in town to visit nieces and nephews. This is the place I usually bring them for a treat. The mocha is good as is the hot chocolate. I appreciate the hard-packed ice cream and the variety of the menu. The service has always been friendly to all of us - including one... More

One of our favorite hangout spots in Eau Claire. Excellent sandwiches and good music scene. Very pleasant environment with limited outdoor seating! Would highly recommend.

There was a jazz group playing when we stopped in for sandwiches and soup. All three were very good. Saw family groups as well as college students. The music was a little loud for visiting, but good for listening!

This place has absolutely delicious hot hoagies and good soup. We had turkey hoagies with extra yellow peppers, and chicken tortilla soup. The soup was closer to chicken veggie soup than tortilla. But usually it is delicious. My mom's quiche was tasty but kind of tough. Service is friendly, but charging .75 for a refill on coffee is a bit... More

Very quaint place to go for some drinks, food and enjoy music. It's a lovely space with all different sorts of seating. You order from the counter and the drinks and food are delivered. There are a few games hanging around if you fancy chess or something similar. It has a great vibe and we enjoyed a happy hour or... More

On this particular night, we went here specifically to listen to a local blue grass group called North of Dixie. It was very enjoyable! They provide a nice selection of beer/wine, but their specialty is coffee, desserts and ice cream. It is clear that most of the clientele frequent the place and many know each other. But it is certainly... More

Acoustic Cafe has the best sandwiches and soups around. Fully loaded sandwiches with sprouts and banana peppers & more! The beer cheese/chili 'cheer' soup is so good. Check them out in Eau Claire or Menomonie. Fun hangout and often have live music too!
