Toodling up I-94 in Wisconsin, one runs into a raft of cheese chops and cranberry emporiums. About halfway between Madison and Eau Claire sits the burg of Black River Falls, and off the interstate you’ll find the Mocha Mouse, a fairly unique combination of retailer, with a cheese shop, wine, locally made canned goods, gifts, and a coffee shop. They are open 8A -8P every day.
Stopped in for breakfast on Christmas Eve, and was the only diner; was interested to note on each table top were individual ramekins or mixed variety of croutons. My inquiry to the waiter revealed these were for the beer cheese soup. Dang. Having already ordered breakfast, I added a bowl of soup to go to my order. (I did find the croutons made for an excellent appetizer – lol).
Breakfast was a straight up affair, with a couple eggs, thick slab o’ ham, and house-baked marble rye toast. It was prepared as ordered and a good value.
It didn’t take me getting far down the road before I had to dip into the soup, which had cooled enough so that I could just chug it from its take-out bowl. Some of the best I have ever had, seriously. Worth a stop. Menu. Cheese gifts by mail available online.
