Great Soup!

We came in for a late lunch/snack about 2:00pm on a weekday. We wanted something light so we looked at the soups, salads, and sandwiches. One of us had a cup of the sweet potato ginger soup (homemade) and a house salad. The soup hit the spot for being tasty and hot, especially for a cold winter... read more

We dined outside at a very cozy table had an excellent waitress but the food was not so good. The omelettes were dry and tasteless but the person that had the hamburger was very pleased with it. Two of us left very dissatisfied! We will give it one more try.

I like the food. Fresh and a nice twist to the usual fare. The place is small, but inviting. Reminds me of a New England roadside eating place. Full bar. Entertainment in the evenings on weekends, but I go there for breakfast and lunch more than anything else. Always happy. I don't seem to have any trouble getting fed quickly.... More

Saturday was out third visit there for breakfast, but once again short staffed and many excuses. Food is good if you like a 2+ hour breakfast. We left and went to Bayport for an enjoyable breakfast. Third time isn't always a charm. Wishing you luck.

Went for birthday lunch with my sister. Sat in the middle of the main room. Servers all around but no service. Finally someone brought coffee. After a while someone finally took our food order. Other people came in & were served but we waited. After 45 minutes a server came & asked if we had eaten already. After over an... More

My husband and I were spending our anniversary weekend in Afton, and this was our stop for lunch one day. We loved the cute and cozy decor, and the woman waiting on us provided excellent service! Prompt, courteous, and friendly. We both thoroughly enjoyed our BLT sandwiches. We will definitely be back soon to try something else!!!

Tried them for Breakfast this spring Had a scramble with hashbrowns, cheese, peppers and ham Eggs were overcooked and crunchy and everything was extremely greasy Left a coating of oil on my plate. Coffee was ok--note they do not have lattes or espressos. Took a long time to get a simple coffee. It was like they had to start from... More

Some of the best service I've had at a small cafe. Food is home made and excellent. Chili was great.

We happened to be near Afton last Saturday, Jan. 31, and asked someone for a café recommendation, thinking we'd like a cup of coffee. They suggested "Sail Away." So we drove along the tree-lined roads in a part of MN that resembles upstate New York and arrived at a very ordinary-looking café in the small town of Afton. But a... More

It is not often that I get to Afton for lunch. In fact I rarely eat in Afton but a few weeks ago I did go out to the Sail Away Cafe with the family. It is your run of the mill local cafe but mixed with a bit of healthy food offerings. I believe none of their menu items... More
