We stopped there for lunch today. The place itself is a hodgepodge but the food is incredible! Turkey Cranberry on a Flat Bread--Fantastic. The flatbread was the best bread I ever had! Tomato Basil soup was delicious Elk Bratwurst on a hoagie bun was super. I've never had Elk meat before. It is very strong. Mixed Berry Coffee Cake--we had... More

We had the berry coffee cake which was very good and the cheese bagel which was too doughy. Watch the change you get back, not sure but I think the gal was giving herself a small tip lol

I like that they have a few different vegetarian items on the menu (instead of the token entree that most restaurants offer, a frozen Garden Burger patty) and that some of the dishes seem more creative in terms of ingredients and flavors than standard cafe fare. Portions are also on the larger side. But despite the somewhat creative menu, food... More

The bakery and food quality is fantastic. Service is regularly slow and they struggle "out of their box." If you have plenty of time its a must visit.

Have eaten here a few times, Morning rush is a long line. Staff is very rude, and expect a tip for reluctantly taking an order.

We stopped by Blue Water Bakery for lunch with our friends. It was good value and they had tasty food. I really enjoyed their Italian Chicken hot sandwich. They have a small deck outside with a narrow but nice lake view.

Fresh baked scones, muffins, crescents, and cookies to go with the coffee or tea of your choice. The blueberry muffins were tops. There are also several small bookcases of for the customer to read on rainy afternoons. Near the beach.

Coffee was fine. But the baked goods were dry and tasteless like 2-day old. Each of the items tasted like they were made from Bisquick and they were really pricey.
