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 bar looks good as well. It's a quick and healthy lunch. Love the People's Food... More

My wife and I have eaten twice at Hackberry's, once for dinner and once for breakfast. For dinner, we both had the sweet bean burger and half of a Thai salad. The burger was served on a white flour bun covered in sesame and poppy seeds. It was served with mushrooms, grilled onions, and a thick slice of tomato. The... More

While visiting family in LaCrosse came upon the Coop during a morning walk and stopped in. Loved the easy going feel. Husband had a nice burger while I had the sunrise hash. Too many potatoes for me but it had some nice flavors. Would like to try more of their lunch. A bit on the pricier side.
