The Downtown Struggle

Restaurants continue to struggle in downtown La Crosse. Bruegger's Bagels just closed, not long after Downtown Mario's closed. The Big Muddy Bistro closed a year ago and the Lone Wolf Coffee Shop has had trouble. Meanwhile, out by Interstate 90 and the new Super Walmart things are on the rise with the recent addition of a Quizno's and a Cold Stone Creamery. I'm sure it won't be long before the city council tries to "solve" this problem.
