Eau Claire, WI



I was really impressed with the Nucleus. Had a scramble with chevre and other fresh veggies and it was excellent. So nice to have this option in EC for creative and distinctive breakfast food when you want to get away from the glut of family diners in the area.


If I could eat here every week I would. It's pricey but you'll love it. Well worth the money.


Best breakfast in Eau Claire. Service is always friendly and helpful. One time they got my order wrong (i had asked for my breakfast wrap without meat) and they quickly corrected it and gave me a complimentary drink for my wait. The prices make me happy and the menu makes my mouth water just thinking about it. i wish they had a dinner menu :) And that i could afford to eat out every day :)


The food is really good, but a bit pricey for me for breakfast. they have always seated us really quickly, but service does take a while, and then the food seems to take a while too. So in other words, a great place for a lazy weekend if you have extra cash in your pocket.


AMAZING breakfast! A bit expensive, but it's awesome!
