We went to have lunch here on December 6, 2012 and the restaurant was closed, it looked like all of the furniture had been removed, and there was a "for lease" sign in the window. We have enjoyed meals here for the past 7 or 8 years.

Cafe on the Avenue is great. Their brie is delicious and so are their desserts. Lovely atmosphere. Great place to go on a mother and daughter date. I have not been there for dinner, but their lunch is wonderful. Probably not the best place to take young children.

Understand this restaurant is closed and plans to relocate, but there has been no announcement as to the location. Closed abruptly with no notice, not a good sign.Too bad, they recently upgraded from wine and beer to full bar.

Cafe on the Avenue is moving to a new location on Highway 19. We will be opened by the end on June. We have not closed permanently. We look forward to seeing everyone at our new location. More

I went to this restaurant as a guest at a bridal luncheon for 10. We were seated promptly since they were not busy at 11:00am. Then the 2 young waitresses informed us they had no lettuce to make any of the salads on their menu. They said the manager had not yet arrived with the money bag, so they couldn't... More

Were there for dinner on a week night. We were the only ones in the place. Honestly thought that they were closed when we walked up. Very glad that they weren't. It's a very pretty, classy interior. Food is a bit on the pricey side, but you get enough for two. We did take home about half and had it... More

This is a neat place to eat lunch with great soups and meals. It is downtown and in the middle of antique shops and crafts.

When we went into Crystal River on a lazy Sunday afternoon we were surprised to find most of the shoppes closed, but luckily this cafe was open. We were made to feel welcome immediately by the attentive staff, and our order was taken quickly. We were brought our drinks and a basket of sweet mini muffins with butter to enjoy... More
