I had lunch and dinner at Cafe Sante. Lunch was Slovakian - Prezganka soup and goulash, both of which were excellent. Dinner was German - sausage and lentil soup, Rouladen and Apfulkuchen.

Enjoyed a great dinner with friends at Cafe Sante in Boyne Coty, Michigan. This restaurant serves great food with a French twist. Wonderful homemade warm bread to start; good salads; we add whitefish, goulash, and homemade sausage. I know it sounds European, not just French, but delicious food. Large portions, too. Enjoyed tasty cocktails and desserts too! Will definitely visit... More

This is a favorite dining place for us in BC. The food is always great. Tonight our waiter was Koz and he was fantastic. When you are in Boyne City, do yourself a favor and give yourself a great dining experience of Cafe Sante!

We have always had a good time here. The staff is professional, personable and knowledgeable of menu items. The chairs are hard and uncomfortable. We were able to sit at a booth tonight, o.m.g. huge difference. Another delightful meal on a comfy booth cushion.

From homemade Italian brick oven pizza to French pate with fresh-baked bread, Cafe Sante evokes the best memories of European eateries. We ate breakfast and dinner on consecutive days and enjoyed not only the food but the live evening music.
