I found this place through Trip Advisor and had to write a review because it was so good. I love the fact that the food is local and organic. The muffaletta sandwich with ham was very tasty! In addition, the service was outstanding. This quaint little gem also has an assortment of organic and local foods in the store for... More

We enjoyed the special trout dinner - unique, well prepared, but thought it to be overpriced. Worth trying once.

Stopped here for a late afternoon lunch on a Friday. They were setting up for that night's fish fry. Had sandwiches - unique selections but both were good (one chicken, one salmon). The store is loaded with good stuff - health foods, gluten-free foods, gourmet foods, you name it. Got some chocolate and sparkling waters on our way out for... More

We happened upon the Driftless Depot quite by accident, and I'm very glad we did! The size of the building is deceiving. There is indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a very well stocked grocery with fresh produce, quality meats, specialty items (dry soda, pine nuts from Italy, Elderberry jam, tuffel oil, various flours and beans, gluten-free items) and...

Debbie was a gracious, caring, friendly host of this little gem in Wisconsin. The salad was local, organic and scrumptious, complete with a beautiful edible flower. I will be back and tell my friends!!! Driftless Depot is definitely worth the stop, plus there is a store to stock up on healthy foods attached. Yum, Yum, Yum!!!

The only upscale market in Sauk county, that we know of. Everything is organic and they have so many unique items in their store. The food is great in the cafe and the coffee is excellent. They also have award winning cheeses and wines available. There is outside seating on a nice patio and they offer various flavors of gelato.

We have purchased their steaks before and were impressed with them, so we stopped here to purchase more on our most recent trip. Unfortunately, this summer was not conducive to the pasture raised cattle, so processing would not take place until later this year. We were still okay with that as we wanted to purchase sandwiches for our picnic to... More

This is my favorite spot for eats in Spring Green. Good sandwiches and they give you apple slices instead of chips or fries...good choice. It's definitely refreshing.
