As an organization, Pablo Group seeks to provide value to our community through Experiences, Entrepreneurship, Urban Living, and Real Estate. The coronavirus pandemic has provided Pablo Group with a unique opportunity 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. Every employee within Pablo Group is now making at least $16 per hour and those working more than 20 hours per week are offered benefits, including healthcare and a 401k. Concurrently, we have altered our menu pricing. Tipping is no longer anticipated in any Pablo Group business. Tips are still accepted and will be directly redistributed to employees. 

The hospitality and service industries are particularly susceptible to income instability. Removing reliance on a flawed and archaic tipping structure has been shown 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. 



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.

Who says breakfast has to end? For our late risers who miss out on our famous Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes, we are both understanding and forgiving and still offer a full menu with variety for all.



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 and start your day off right.



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.



Wednesday - Sunday: 8am - 2pm
