This is an excellent restaurant for lunch. I haven't eaten there any other time, so not sure if they are open for breakfast or supper. Very good soups, salads, and sandwiches. Everything has always been fresh. Excellent bread. Desserts look amazing as well, I haven't tried them. They also serve a great cup of coffee.

We were looking for a good cup of coffee after a disappointing taste of the coffee at our hotel and stopped at Cooks Room. We were not disappointed. The latte was excellent as was the service. It is a charmingly decorated place also. Just wish we could have tried their lunches. We also had a lovely conversation with local people... More

We were traveling through Dodgeville and saw the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Because of that, we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. My husband had the Tuscany Panini. We both agreed it was fantastic. In fact, I think I'll order that next time. I had the salmon salad and loved it. My husband got... More

I have been searching the hills of SW Wisconsin for the perfect Cappucino to enjoy during my trout fishing excursions. As of September, 2016 I have tried two places in Dodgeville. Cobblestone and Cooks Room. Cooks Room is a better choice, but not nearly as good as Timber Lane in Boscobel or Cottage Baker in Fennimore. When I ordered a... More

We stopped on a family adventure in Southern WI at this cafe for lunch! Very cute atmosphere - looked like an excellent coffee bar - but it was not a coffee drinking kind of day. There were a ton of options on the menu for lunch - liked the childrens options as well! I think I could have made a... More

I order lunch from here on a regular basis. The food is always fresh. The chef always comes up with great lunch sandwich specials at a fair price.

This is a great little gem on Main Street in Dodgeville. I usually go for the Panini's here. Salads are great as well, but they removed my favorite. My favorite drink here is the Rasberry Lemonade. Staff is personable. They offer coffee, but I haven't tried any of them, but they if the coffee is like their food. They should... More

I always enjoy eating at the Cook's Room. It's always hard for us to choose what I (and others) are going to eat (sandwich, salad, etc...) The Tasty Turkey with cranberry chutney and pub chips or the Chicken Caesar salad or....or.... and even though I end up with leftovers there is always room for one of their delicious desserts. The...
