Great food and drinks!

We tried a little bit of everything on the menu and it was all awesome! If we make it back to Boyne we will definitely be eating here again.

I haven't spent a lot of time in Boyne City and didn't know this place was even there. We were looking for a place to eat a friend recommended Cafe Sante. A really great selection of food that you wouldn't expect to find in a small northern Michigan town. We had the charcuterie app and everything was very good. I... More

Great Food-Good Service & Atmosphere-Waterfront I have been to this restaurant for dinner-drinks with friends-lunch multiple times. Today I had Sunday brunch this is when the restaurant is at its best. The food was a little slow to come out but worth the wait. I had the french omelet with wild mushrooms yum! They have vegetarian options also. Always good... More

The reviews for this restaurant on this site as well as Yelp seem rather high to me. We had a group of 12 including five kids.We were there over Christmas week. The night we had dinner there the restaurant was at most half full (including our large party). The service was totally fine. The food was just okay. I had... More

We stumbled on this restaurant on a trip into this very small city. Sitting on the edge of Lake Charlevoix, this well decorated french/European restaurant sits on the bottom floor of what looks like a retail building. Since it was winter, no one was eating outside but they had fires burning for atmosphere that would be incredible on a better... More

First time at Cafe Sante. Wish we lived closer so we could enjoy it frequently. Jerry, our server, was excellent. The food was outstanding...all in all a wonderful wedding anniversary celebration with our family.

As busy as Sant'e was on New Years Eve we had great service. No suprize we had to wait for a table but that is expected. The bar was happy to provide us with drinks while we waited and they were not shy with the pours. They always have great specials and are well known for the seafood, poultry, and... More

We just enjoyed our 4th visit to Cafe Sante. The food, atmosphere and service have been consistently fabulous! Pleasingly European in food style we adore the Duck French Onion Soup, heavenly moules et frites (we've tried all flavours!) steaks and Beouf Bourguignon. The kids are especially fond of the Papardelle Bolognaise and pizzas. I wish I could remember our server's... More
