I love this place!!! I mentioned that my daughter can't eat gluten. The response was "You are in the right place." I was told this bistro can accommodate the top 8 allergens (and probably others if asked). The food tasted great, too. My daughter chose...More

Hackberry's is located across from the Farmer's Market and above the Food Coop, which gives a hint as to the kind of food to expect. It offers fresh, healthy foods with whole grain and gluten free offerings.

I'm in a food coma from a sweet potato/apple hash, with bacon, and bits of herbs, and topped by an easy-over egg. Delicious and guilt-free.

For organic food options in a nice cozy setting above the People's Co-op, this is a great place to grab a bite to eat. Have been here a couple of times - will be back many more times.

Popped in while passing through and had an amazing lunch! Everything on menu was so tempting, but went with Salmon Benedict and people's choice burger. Very very good!

Hackberry's is a great place for a healthy lunch in La Crosse. Their Greek and beet salads are delicious and filling. The bread sticks are similar to those from Olive Garden (hopefully healthier) so very hard to resist. Plenty of drink options and the salad...More
