Friendly staff and good service. They have a wide variety of foods. This is the only place in town you can order vegetarian breakfast sausage! The fries are great! The only downside is that it is pretty small.

Sandra H

LOVE the Mint Cafe! I have been here twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch- both times the food was great, the service was fast and friendly! We were in town to ski at Granite Peak and we were looking for something casual - the Mint fit the bill and it is only 10 minutes away! Worth a try for sure!

T Carlson86

Decent breakfast at a reasonable price for south beach

Adam Meyer

They've been around since 1888 so they're obviously doing something right. Great food great prices. Nothing fancy just damn good!

Suzie Holubiw

Yummy food, great service!

Steven Brewster

If only they served breakfast all day! Good stuff!

Jack Laufer

I’d love to give a higher score because the place has a great vibe and the staff is very friendly, but my open face turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes came with sliced turkey lunch meat and not real turkey. That’s too cheap on the ingredients for me.

Janet Bauw

Good food

Cindy Punke

Went with a friend and had a new dish, Korean tacos and we loved them. Food was awesome as always!! Love the Mint!

Ga Eblen

if your in the area its one of the best places to get a good ol classic breakfast

Sarah Kowal

Really great quick stop off the highway for exceptional food for a decent deal on the town square. We had the hot beef sandwich, tuna melt, pesto veggie burger, and peanut butter malts. Most items are home made. All was delicious. We will definitely come again on our next trip across the state!

norma brotz

Great food

Timothy Ludwig

Great food, wonderful ambience,place is very popular but never waited for a table. One of those gems in downtown Wausau

Michael Johnson

This is one of my favorite places to eat downtown! It's a sort of greasy spoon old timey diner sort of place, but the food is delicious! I haven't had anything on the menu that I didn't like. Best part is you can't beat the prices! It's always always pretty busy at lunch but you can typically beat the lunch rush if you show up around 11:15-11:30. I highly recommend salted caramel cream soda. Just superb place to eat.

Michael Klitzka

Great food, staff is awesome

Peter Ekstrom

Awesome place


Great place to eat whether its breakfast lunch or dinner. Amazing service and food. Something for everyone.

Erik Wiedeman

My favorite restaurant in Wausau! Always great and consistent!

Melodee Campo

The food is always good here. Breakfast, lunch and supper. We come here a lot.

Scott Hansen

Awesome. Simply awesome. The place has been in existence since 1888. It has a retro vibe to it, like it is from the 50's. There is a great park across the street from it. It is in a funky old part of town and I liked it. The food was very good. The service was fantastic. The prices were great as well. I would go here again without hesitation.

Paolo Paciones

Delicious food. Reminds me of my home down south.

Wayne Radtke

To small limited.

this account was hacked was hacked

Always happy with our meals. Great place to bring grandkids.

Sallie Wolff

You have a taste for great home cooking without the mess? This is the place to go for great food at great prices! Way better than any fast food restaurant at a better price in about the same amount of time. They have large selection to suit any taste you might have from breakfast to dessert. I have not had any meal that I didn't like here they have great friendly staff.

lynn buska

Very good food.

Marissa Kevilus

The potatoes cakes on Friday are amazing!!!

Chris Brown-Roloff

I guess lm a regular cuz I like to go as often as I can. I almost always have great service. This time was different cuz they have a new system they haven't been trained on an it's taking them a little more time to figure out. They are willing to do special orders but it was difficult cuz the system isn't set up for "special" changes so I stayed longer than normal. Next time hopefully they will be trained more on it cuz it's not the waitresses fault for nowadays electronics.

Linda Revolinski

Food wasn't that good..

Dawn Vlietstra

Food & service is impeccable always. Nice relaxing place to dine:)

The Pizza Guy

Good food

Laurel Noack

Pretty good food but the restaurant needs to buy more seating space and grow with the times.

Steven Davie

The greek gyro was great and the gourmet onion rings where good too! Great service as well.

Tim Leuenberger

The food is good kind of a busy restaurant in the morning but I would definitely go back

Tracy Langer

Delicious breakfast! Highly recommend ♥️

Aleesha Reath

I went there and it was super busy but the waitress was very attentive, she made sure to check on my table and made sure the coffee cups we're always full. Food was perfect and didn't take too long to arrive. The prices of food was not expensive and you definitely get a lot of food. Would highly recommend eating there!

Marybetg Eilbes

Was in Wausau on business for 3 days and googled restaurants near me and this popped up as a family restaurant,so decided to go. Staff was wonderful from start to finish. Answered all questions and food was prepared as I needed it to be without seasonings, gravy and salt. In fact ate breakfast here twice for breakfast and then once for lunch. Enjoyed it a lot. Prices are very reasonable for what you get. Would go back again when in the area.

Dyan Rait

Wow...what great team work!! Food was good too!!

Dave Earhart

Fantastic food and extremely friendly folks. This is a great nook for a 50's style diner!

jared hoffenbecker

Great food, great atmosphere. Great all around place to eat!

Ian Reese

Who doesn't love the Mint? Great food and reasonable prices. My personal favorite is the chopped beefsteak with onions. Don't sleep on the pie either. Overall a fantastic place, perfect for smaller groups of folks.

Amy Southworth

One of my favorite spots downtown! Good food and enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere.

Janie Hipps

Awesome place love the old school vibe

Carrie F.

I've always heard how amazing the food at The Mint is, and now that I've eaten there, I can agree that it's one of the best places to eat in Wausau. Every part of my meal, from appetizer to dessert was delicious. I left there feeling like I had just eaten my new favorite meal.

Joel Lewis

The food is always excellent and so is the service.

Benjamin Jones

The Mint is an iconic piece of Wausau! The food is always great and at great prices as well. The only reason I'm giving this a 4 out of 5 star review is because the service we have had the past few times at breakfast has been slow. I understand it gets busy, but waitresses should still make sure to service all their guests in a timely fashion. Other than that, I highly recommend The Mint to anyone visiting and/or living the Wausau area.

Mike B

The MINTin wausau is Nice friendly place for lunch and dinners in the center of wausau. Across from the 400 block.

Preston Downing

Everything there is great. Servers, service, etc. I will definitely return.

Laura Koppa

Great food, nice menu selection and friendly staff. Combine that with reasonable prices and that equals a place you will want to keep coming back to!

Andrew Nickel

First time here stayed at the Jefferson Street Inn and ate here for breakfast and it was phenomenal! Excellent service reasonable prices neat atmosphere! I came with a group of 5 and was seated immediately. I had a Denver omlet it came with melty cheese and was made with 3 real eggs! The griddle is open and you can watch the chefs cook if you sit at the side counter. 10/10 would recommend!

Joseph Bullington

Loved this place , will be a must if we are in the area again!

Sheryl Rudd

Absolutely a must place to eat! Food was fantastic! My granddaughters loved it also!

Libby Wiskowski

Great atmosphere, tasty, tasty food!

Marilyn Pereda

Friendly service but a parking issue is linked for their customers on weekdays. You only have an hour free or you get ticketed by the city.

Kara Rasmussen

Really good food and service. A funny situation took place while waiting for our server. A women at the next table was vocally rude about how she never got service. "And that there were hundreds of other restaurant she could go to and she expected good service". My waiter responded in a very courteous way saying "I'm sorry ma'am but you're not in my section". The woman at the other table promptly shut up. And then at the end of the meal my waitress said "I'm sorry I had to say that to the lady." anyway I really appreciated how she stood up for herself and didn't take the rudeness of the customer. Bravo!!!! Definitely check out the mint for superb dining and food!!

Deborah Seymour

Waitress was very good. Food was good. We were served in reasonable time. The only thing was the booths were so tight together, I thought I would suffocate. My grandson age 9 fit in booth good, but hard for adults We switched to a table to eat..

Jeff Peters

Love the Mint. Great food and friendly staff. Ashley and Denny rock!!!

Brian Smart

Wow. I knew this place was going to be good, but it was seriously incredible. The wide variety of menu items, fantastic service, and affordable prices make it one of my favorite breakfast restaurants to date! If you are in Wausau, you MUST stop by.

Jeffrey Hurlebaus

The mint has good food & good service to.


Very good light dinner. Caprese Chicken Breast special was very good as was the Greek salad. Service was very friendly. Excellent dinner rolls too.

Jim Zimick

Great food, great service. Been coming here since I was a kid. Never a disappointing experience.

me me

Over priced. Canned food cooked on griddle. Small portions. Not a good restaurant at all.

Carl O'Neil

Finally made it to The Mint Cafe, usually a line but today walked right in. Nice clean diner atmosphere. Ordered the special, Eggs Benedict. Eggs were perfectly poached, sauce was excellent, Canadian Bacon was smokey and delicious, hashbrowns golden and crispy! Also ordered the pesto and feta cheese omelet. Eggs were fluffy and perfect, delicious filling. Someone really knows how to cook eggs here. As I was about to thank our server and tell her that was the best Eggs Benedict I ever had I overheard an elderly lady in another booth telling her server that the cinnamon roll she just ate was the best she ever had. I though to myself, if anyone knows cinnamon rolls it's this lady, so next time I come in I know what I'm ordering, Eggs Benedict and a cinnamon roll!!!

Alan Neumann

Love this throwback diner! The Greek Hummus wrap is the best!

Kal P

Great place! Cozy and friendly! Don't eat at your hotel if you stay in the area! They also have carry out. We would love to visit it again!

Wendy L

This place is iconic! I remember spending a great deal of time here as a kid. Now they've stepped it up a notch! It's the same classic dining atmosphere and menu but they've added some trendier items to their reasonably-priced menu as well. I tried the special - shrimp po boy with rosemary fries. My daughter enjoyed an iced coffee with her meal. And to finish we shared a slice of butterscotch cream cheese pie and apple pie with cinnamon ice cream.

Ashley Wiza

We will be back! Everything we ordered was good.


Came here on my first date with my Fiancee and will never forget this place. Lovely location with outdoor seating to enjoy the warm summer air. The whole place makes you feel like you're in the big city. Oh, did I mention the food is great too!

Jaclyn Shannon

Love this place, even if it is always packed!

Jason Kevilus

Great fish fry and potato cakes on Fridays.

Hank Zane

Nice spot for breakfast, lunch, pie. Desserts looked delicious on display like one of each please.

Mary Wolf

Delicious food, great service--especially for a busy place. Reasonable prices. Gluten free options.

Kyle Sexton

I didn't expect such great food and service from a diner, but this place is special. I had to complain about one thing: their prices are too low. Seriously. Go look at the menu. I think it's from 1990. I had the roast turkey dinner and a beer and soup and mashed potatoes for $13.96. if you go, leave a big tip. They are working hard back there.

Kirsi Zirbel

Pleasant, wait staff easily navigated allergy concerns.

Michelle Renee Pupillo

Excellent Staff & Great Food ~ I suggest trying their famous Greek Salad. They have a excellent Pesto Burger too! ~

Diana Kearney

Great place to eat. The service was fast, even though they were super busy. Would recommend to anyone.

Andrew Rhode

Very good and healthy food. It is always packed though so might be hard to get seating.

Jean Hall

Great French Onion soup. Great homemade dinner roll. Friendly staff.

kelly finnessy

Food was amazi g, service was fast, greay variety, wait staff top notch. Will be back next time i. In town


We stopped here for dinner, before catching a show at the Grand Theatre. Very convenient location, across the grand theatre. It was a Friday night and the place was packed. I was a bit nervous that we would be late to the show. The wait staff, recognized right away that we didn't have much time, she was quick and we were in and out in 30 minutes. Very good service and the food is delicious. I recommend the Wagyu Beef Burger. It's big, my cousin and mom shared it. Also, the milkshake is a must! Good retro decor and atmosphere. Will definitely come back.

Kailey Alvarado

The Mint was an unexpected, delightful lunch experience! Yummy food & quick service, despite how incredibly crowded it was at lunchtime on a work day. This is not the spot for intimate conversations but it is a great work lunch choice. I had the Greek Salad, which was perfectly crunchy and flavorful.

Al Guetzlaff

The lunch was great; the ambiance nostalgic. Make certain to save room for home made pie

Shana Marie Rebeck

Food was good service sucked!

Kennedy Johannsen

Absolutely adorable place! My friend and I split a strawberry shake, which was delicious!!! My friend had a burger and I had the portebella mushroom sandwich... Neither of us left disappointed! We will definitely be returning the next time we are in town.

Joe Hrdina

Made a pitstop in SP to grab lunch and glad we found this historical diner. I was dressed for the beach, but didn't feel out of place here. The Patty melt was great, and made the classic way. Places like this always seem to be in motion, you see the inner workings of a restaurant. From the visible kitchen line, to the servers working behind the counter. I imagine it's quite busy during school seasons.

Chris Raasch

Love everything about dining at the mint!

Don Shy

Good food, good service, good prices. Nothing fancy just a clean and friendly place to eat.

Scott VandenElzen

Can I give them 6 stars? Amazing little dinner in the heart of Wausau

steven jendro

Food was terrific! Was visiting from out of town and decided to give The Mint Cafe a shot. So glad we did. They were able to take our table of 8, even with limited space available. My Wagyu teriyaki pineapple burger was excellent, and everyone in our party was happy with their food. Prices were very budget friendly and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great food without breaking the bank


Cool place, come here with the boys all the time!!

Carol Kriel

Was better a few years ago.

Kris Glienke

I have gone to this cafe since I was very young. Historic, great food, what's not to like!


A nice Classic Diner in the middle of downtown Wausau that's been in business for a long time

Anji Spialek

My favorite Wausau restaurant. The olive burger never misses!

Kimberly Wahler

Very quaint and interesting decor. Cheese curds flavorful and cheesy. No empty ones. The gyro sandwich was good and my husband really liked his upgraded wagyu burger. The black forest pie had a flaky crust and plenty of fruit. Friendly staff.

Chad James

Stopped in while in Wausau for business. Food was great and it had a comfort of a classic cafe. Very nostalgic place that you must try.

Rick Shortt

Amazing people, good food, and in a historic setting. Highly.recommended by all of us in the Norman Jackson Band!

Mike Knolinski

Stopped there for dinner before a concert across the square at Grand Theatre. Service was friendly and food was excellent. Was busier this night but food was still served in short time...and tasted delicious! When in the downtown area again I'd definitely stop again.

mark hagenbach

Vintage, old diner in downtown Wausau. Stopped for late lunch. Wife had a gyro salad, I opted for a hot turkey sandwich. Hard to screw up a hot turkey sandwich unless you use fake potatoes. While the turkey wasn’t carved right off the bird it was still tasty. The mashed potatoes and gravy were terrific. Gyro salad very good. This is a solid, basic locale for home cooked food, no frills. Some sites claim it’s a top 5 restaurant in town. Go and determine your own rating. I’d go back again.

Beth Kuchenbecker

Quick service. Small place. Delicious food.

Janet Gosch

Great prices & great food & servers!

Gerhard Bohn

Excellent meal, will return

Joe Fortmann

Excellent! Great for kids, too?

Nightshade Phoenix

classic style for food it's a great place to bring the older generation or even see what the youngers think of the good old days but not alot of options for those watching what they eat.

sandy dottenwhy

It was okay. We had the pork special and it was over cooked.

Brendan Castaneda

Great service good atmosphere, breakfast is ok for what you pay for.

I have never had a tuna melt sandwich as good as the ones I can get at The Mint. A Wausau classic and you can never go wrong with stopping for lunch here and catching up with friends.

Maria Rieck

The tuna melt is amazing and so are the cheese curds, and the staff is always very friendly!

James Moore

Had lunch after an appointment. Perfect small cozy cafe. Friendly service, clean, food was fast and very yummy. And the chef even helped my son find the restroom, will definitely come back. Great job!

Excellent food and excellent service!

Jamie Chiapuzio

Excellent food and service. Old fashioned diner experience.

Daniel Bozarth

Great food, great prices. Got the pot roast melt and it was great. Was surprised that only one thing on the menu was above 10$.

Lance Wilde

You absolutely MUST try the chili. Let me repeat. You must try the chili. Have you tried the chili? You really must. I enjoyed also the portabella mushroom and pesto sandwich and of course all the historic photos of this place dating back to 1904. And the chili.

Patty Gutteter

I love going to the mint I've been going there since I have been 19 years old and it's my favorite place to go when I come to Wausau the food is awesome I love their soup. 30 years I've been coming there
