Remarkable food that is as good as it gets. We Iunched on escargot and stuffed artichokes and sipped their delicious sparkling water; their bread is the bomb & pariessene salad with poached egg is masterful. Prices are reasonable and the ambience delightful. So looking forward to another great meal here, hopefully very soon.

If we lived in that town we'd eat there often. Very nice decor, great selection of single malt scotch whiskey and wine (although being their for breakfast, we did not partake). The waitress was excellent. There were four of us in our group for brunch. I had one of their varieties of eggs benedict, it was great. The coffee was... More

I love that the portions are appropriate, not too big, not too small. I have had almost all the items on the menu and have been pleased with the majority. They have a great bar and a vast array of craft beers to choose from.

We travel to Boyne City 2-3 times each year for some excellent x-country sking at Boyne Mountain or bicycling on the wheelway and always plan to have dinner at Cafe Sante! The service is perfect, the wine list well balanced, and the food is excellent . The Beef Bourguignon is a favorite of both of ours!

My husband and I were vacationing in northern Michigan and came to Café Sante for a late lunch on a rainy afternoon. If you're in the area this restaurant should be on your must try list. I was disappointed that we never made it to Café Sante for breakfast but we really enjoyed our lunch. I had the mussels (French... More

Some of the best waitstaff, knowledgeable, friendly and providing great service coupled with outstanding food at a great value, this is a must stop for any out-of-towners. The locals are you know what they have in their backyard, they help keep this European style bistro busy year around. You won't find a burger, Bud Light on draught, nor California Chardonnay... More

Looking for a relatively upscale meal in the Boyne City area? Café Sante is your place! The setting is great with a nice view of the lake. The entrée choices vary from season to season and they always have some very interesting and delicious choices. I recently tried the paperdelle (sp?)with Bolognese sauce and it was the best I've ever... More

We dine here at least once a month. The food is fabulous, attentive service and a great location. Visit Bruce's chocolate house next door for a little take home treat!
