The Acoustic Cafe in Eau Claire is not a chain restaurant. It was established in 1994 and it is separately owned and operated. Even though it bares the same name, it is not connected to the Acoustic Cafe in Menomonee.

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,...More
