Have eaten here many times, the mix of patrons runs from college students to professionals having lunch meetings to families. Very laid back environment. Love the sandwiches and soups, the whole wheat rolls used for the sandwiches is always soft and delicious. On weekend evenings you will often find live music. Park is easy with a couple of lots with... More

Often visit Eau Claire, and almost as often Acoustic Cafe. The help -- smacking of cheerful Wisconsin University students, are just so cheerful. And the crowd has a laid back "coffee house" ambiance...Intergenerational, somewhat bookish -- but it a good way. And unlike a chain, the soups, sandwiches and variety of bakery -- really taste good. Eau Claire draws many... More

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
