Road Trip to through MN & WI to Madison

A friend and I are taking a road trip from Minneapolis to Madison and back next Friday and Saturday. Our route is flexible and we can take our time getting there. The only must see on the list is Talieson in Spring Green. On the way down we’ll probably go west on 94 through Eau Claire, down to Spring Green and Madison. On the way back we may go through LaCrosse, Winona and Red Wing.

Any tips on places to stop on the drive or in Madison? Sights to see? Orchards? Cool shops or stores? Good restaurants? Would especially be interested for referrals to restaurants that specialized in organic or fresh foods or, on the other end of the scale, any restaurants that have plain ol’ good down home food. Not too expensive, both my friend and I are “job challenged” at the moment.

Thanks for your help.

P.S. I've been to the Dells and Baraboo, so am familiar with that area.
