We go to this restaurant just about every Sunday for breakfast, only time we don't go is if we have other plans or if we are out of town. Great food, great service, Can't say enough about it. I have been there a couple of times for lunch and dinner which have also been great. The owners and staff care... More

The Hungry Peddler has such a unique wonderful atmosphere and makes you feel at home. I almost feel like I have gone back in time to the 1940s or 1950s. Very clean and nice with a cute little bar in the entry area. The food is fantastic and the service is great! Be prepared for a short wait for seating... More

When you see the parking lot full, that is usually a good sign. Great food & great service. Happy and efficient staff. Stopped in for breakfast. My husband ordered the Eggs Benedict with hash browns $7.69, and I ordered the Breakfast Burrito with hash browns for $5.99. Both were excellent. Reasonable prices, coffee cup was always full. I would eat... More

If you have a love for onion soup this is the BEST soup ever. The restraurant is a quaint place that reminds me of someplace that every town has. Very friendly staff and the burgers are great. Casual dress, go in for a great Bloody Mary or beer. Just go in and enjoy. Oh, don't forget the onion rings.

We stopped at the Hungry Peddler for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Every table was full, but service was fast and friendly. Coffee cups were always topped off. The food was delicious, and cooked to perfection. This is definitely a place we will visit for breakfast again.

Our server was pleasant and kept our coffee cups filled. A neighboring table ordered the lasagna special and the portion was HUGE !!! I would return... More

Went to the Hungry Peddler because of the high reviews/rating for La Crosse places to eat. Not sure where those reviews came from (family or friends of restaurant?), because this place is not good. Service was poor, interior is old/outdated, poor atmosphere, food was not good, steaks were overcooked. We will not return here, La Crosse has a lot of... More
