The stuffed pancakes are to die for. My husband order a Rob Thomas, which was a mix of a shake and an ice coffee. It was "smooth". Must stop and try this place.

The staff are angry, loud, and have better things to do than wait on customers. My very expensive breakfast arrived cold and my waitress was hostile. Not a good client experience! Try going across the street for coffee instead.

The Nucleus is a breakfast gem in Eau Claire. It's not your typical diner atmosphere, they have creative and unique offerings. I highly recommend them, but get there early on weekends because it's gets pretty busy.

I love the food the Nucleus has, the crepes are so amazing even the orange juice is freshly squeezed and sublime. However, I have been there 3 times and we can't get a waitress even when we ask for one, and it wasn't like we...More
