“Breakfast - starting the day off right.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Come to this restaurant really really hungry. You will leave fully satisfied. Come early as the place fills with regular customers. Once here, you will understand why the place fills early. The food is wonderful!!! The one difficulty I had at this restaurant was the difficulty choosing what I wanted, so many good things to choose from.

“Good service and above average breakfast location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I eat here numerous times each year and always enjoy the service and meal. The waitresses are attentive and personal and that adds to the flavor of this unique restaurant. It is a bit dark at times so if you want to read a newspaper ask for a table near the window or one with a lamp.

“Good/quaint/reliable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Visited here for breakfast while visiting family in La Crosse:

What we liked:

1. Outstanding service. We felt very welcomed by all staff members, and when we asked for something, like extra napkins, they got it to us in a flash.
2. There is a portion of the menu devoted to those with small appetites.
3. My husband enjoyed the choice of omelettes and said his was delicious.
4. The place (it appears) formerly was a family home, so it has a small, intimate feel.
5. Prices are good.

What we didn't like:

1. All the food was good except the sausage gravy. It had plenty of sausage in it, but it was oh so thick. H-E-A-V-Y.
2. Coffee was fresh and hot but very so-so tasting. Like coffee served at a restaurant chain. This is not a major thing--I expected it. But I was secretly hoping for better.

We have eaten here many times and the food is always delicious and the service is excellent. There is often a wait but good things are always worth waiting for.

We have had the bacon wrapped tips, the all you can fish and bacon wrapped s

“Great food at affordable price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We arrived at dinner time expecting to wait to be seated; however, we were sat right away with a variety of goodies on our table, from crackers to veggies. The restaurant is quaint but makes up for it in personality. I enjoyed the "old fashioned" look of the place and seeing all the history. Our server was friendly and always checked to make sure we were doing fine, without being over pushy. The food was absolutely amazing, and you get so much of it. Most even come with a soup AND a salad, along with bread. You do not leave this place hungry and it is not bad on the wallet either. I cannot wait to try the Hungry Peddler again when I am in La Crosse!
