    I used to love love love coming here for the fresh salads and delicious soups for lunch during work. Last few times there’s been mishaps where I would have to mention something but today… I give up. Cheese was becoming liquified (I didn’t have a creamy dressing) and a few tomatoes had fuzz. :(

    I’ll begin by saying that this is the first time I’ve ever felt compelled to write a review about a negative restaurant experience, but the entire thing is so blatantly disrespectful that I just had to speak up. This is the first time my partner and I have ever been to this restaurant, so we were excited to try it since there are so few bistros/sandwich shops in town. The food itself was delicious—no complaint there—but a mishap with my drink is what bothered me. I order a Sweet Raspberry Iced Tea from their menu. It had a deep enough color that I definitely assumed it’d be sweet when I tasted it, but it tasted exactly like iced water with no more than a hint of distinguishable flavor. I took a few more sips thinking it may have just settled to the bottom, but no. We finished our food and I went to the counter to request a bit of sugar or a couple pumps of raspberry syrup to flavor it after waiting a while in line for the other customers—explaining that it tasted like ice water—and that I was okay with whatever she thought was best. She took the drink and doused it with a ton of sugar then topped it with at least five pumps of syrup before handing it back to me to try. She did it in such a manner that it seemed like malicious compliance just to get me to leave. I tried it, and unsurprisingly it was the sweetest thing I’ve ever tasted. It was only a 20 oz. cup. If I were a business owner, I would’ve simply given my dissatisfied customer another drink of their choice that was equal or lesser in value price-wise instead of making a scene in front of myself & the other customers about it. I understand that inflation is high and resources aren’t cheap, but I think the cost of losing business is much greater especially over something so small like this. I couldn’t wait to leave this place, and I’m never going back

    This place used to survive on the off campus lunch crowd from Wausau east (the old building). Since then its transformed itself into a coffee shop but maintained the menu that it used to have. Overall its one of the better places to go in town for an informal lunch or a place to read and use wifi.

    My husband and I stopped here for lunch. Friendly and courteous young men were working. Great atmosphere. I ordered the Prima Cobbler, which was delicious. My husband ordered the Italian Beef Su Prima, but didn't really care for it-not much flavor.

    This food was horrific, spent $40 on two coffees and 3 sandwiches. The coffees were bitter and flavorless, also were charged an extra dollar per coffee to get a single pump of French vanilla flavoring we couldn’t taste. The sandwiches were soggy and smelled incredibly like fermentation. You can see the microwaves they cook everything in right when you walk through the door. The chicken on these sandwiches was as thin as cardboard and tasted that way. Asked for a refund and was only retuned the money for the coffees which was $10 we used to get gas station coffee instead. Never go here for it’s a waste of every cent you spend.
