The atmosphere is great, the coffee is great, the food is great. Just a unique place to visit. I love their spinach salad.

We were lamenting that our favorite matcha smoothie wasn't there, so our barista took what she had and created green gold! The healthiest, most refreshing, tasty, matcha-spinach-fruit latte ever! She won't be able to keep us away. You just come here for great food and amazing drinks!

Besides a wonderful selection of coffee drinks, their food and soups are a fantastic lunch choice in Downtown Wausau!

I really love coming here for their oatmeal and a coffee. They have a great seating area by the window to curl up with a good book and also do some people watching. The owners would benefit from an attitude adjustment, always unfriendly. Lucky for them, the oatmeal is beyond.

I am a definite coffee lover, just the smell of this shop was intoxicating. The coffee is fantastic, loved every drop. Very busy, which is always a good sign. Just sat down for a min. and relaxed with a cup of joe.

This local coffee shop is a gem, with great atmosphere and a nice selection of breakfast pastries and lunch sandwiches, The atmosphere is laid back. You can almost always get a table, either in the shop or just outside--either open air on the sidewalk or indoors in the funky repurposed old shopping space called Washington Square. Free WiFi! And they... More

I have stopped here on numerous occasions with different folks and everyone seems to enjoy it. It's tucked inside the Washington Square Mall, though it does have direct street access. Parking may be hit or miss, but there's either the Center Mall garage or the garage around the corner on Jefferson street. I can't speak to their food quality, but... More

Allister Deacons is really nice. They have some great breakfast and lunch options. The coffee is really nice, too. I think the location is perfect for being downtown. The owners made it super cozy for friends and business people to meet up!

The warm atmosphere and location invited me in, but the coffee and food wouldn't bring me back. The location is nice as it is in the middle of downtown and near the Square/mall. The coffee did not taste gormet and was just plain not good. I did expect there to be more variety offered from the bakery. The concept works,... More
