An excellent place for lunch! My husband had the Reuben Sandwich and I had Creamy Potato and Ham soup and a homemade roll. Everything was very good and the service was excellent!

The service was very good, and food came very promptly. It was not particularly busy, but looked like there were 3 cooks. The salad was served on a chilled plate and had a variety of greens. No room for desert. The prices are very reasonable.

My husband & I stopped at this treasure for lunch over the July 4th weekend. It was packed & they were able to get us in quickly. The ravioli appetizer is delicious & our service was awesome! Great experience for everyone, especially smaller groups.

Found this place in our way out of town thanks to Trip Advisor reviews. Friendly service, good diner food and great atmosphere. Definitely the place to have breakfast in Wausau!

My father use to take me here during the 1970's, and the food and drinks are still memorable. The burgers are excellent, and the homemade pies are great.

We were so happy to see they have gluten free options. The GF food was great and they even had a GF dessert option! We will be back. The Mint is a treasure in the downtown Wausau area.

A very quaint diner. Nothing fancy but located right on the square. I ordered the pot roast and it was great, very tender and juicy. If your looking for good food without fighting the trendy crowds this is a definite winner!

An old fashioned café type eatery, that has good food, friendly servers and fair prices. I had a Friday fish fry and it was a lot of food for the cost and quite tasty.

The locals love this spot as the regulars piled in for breakfast. The food was ok, nothing special but a convenient downtown location.
