Eau Claire's Heavyweight Champion of Food.

The Nucleus started as a small cafe with just a few tables and a great view of Water Street in downtown Eau Claire. Nearly two decades later, the tradition of full body and full flavor breakfast, brunch, and lunch remains. The Nuke, as locals call it, has more than doubled its seating and kitchen capacity over the years, but the classic menu offerings remain.

Pancakes, omelettes, the Yeti Skillet. There's something for every appetite, and we always make an effort to be mindful of dietary restrictions and preferences. Whatever you choose, come hungry.



Who says breakfast has to end?  Certainly not us. Enjoy brunch your way with a full menu of breakfast favorites and lunchier options as well. We also offer a selection of vegetarian and vegan options!



We can hardly imagine anyone preferring a meal over breakfast when given the option, but if lunch is more your style, we're glad to offer a variety of sandwiches and specials to keep you coming back for more.

As an organization, Pablo Group seeks to provide value to our community through Experiences, Entrepreneurship, Urban Living, and Real Estate. The Covid-19 Pandemic and its aftermath offered an invaluable perspective to review and evaluate the state of those endeavors. Each pillar has been uniquely impacted since the onset of the pandemic.

Pablo Group’s Experiences pillar is a collection of hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, and bars throughout Eau Claire. As we reflected on the compensation model, we came to the conclusion that we can and will do better. Since implementation in June 2021, every employee within Pablo Group is making a livable wage and eligible for 401k, and those working more than 20 hours per week are offered benefits, including healthcare and paid parental leave. Our prices are inclusive of our pay structure and benefits.


The hospitality and service industries are particularly susceptible to income instability. Our pay and benefit structure aims to help reduce the economic exposure and risk to those workers. It is Pablo Group’s hope that our new structure improves the wage stability and creates better working conditions for employees throughout our organization.
