I called the hotel desk and asked where to eat breakfast. One place she recommended was the Mint Cafe. We hadn't known it was there for supper. Perhaps advertise at the nearby hotel more! We had a great breakfast there and we were back for...More

Food is always fresh and tasty, the staff are always smiling and helpful. We discovered the Mint Cafe on our first doctor's visit in Wausau and were so happy with everything, we've been back several times and never been disappointed!

We were on our way to Marshfield and Googled Wausau restaurants. What a wonderful treat. We were to early for lunch (we were on Michigan time) so we both had an omelet. They were amazing. AND they had gluten free toast.

I have been coming here periodically since I was a small child. It is a traditional lunch counter style diner that never disappoints. Deep fried cheese curds, cheeseburger and fries, it doesn't get better than that. Can't wait until next time.

Clean plates times four should tell you most of what you need to know. Omelettes were well made and delicious as were the hash browns. Kids loved pancakes, eggs and bacon. Especially liked their hot chocolate with whipped cream.
