Their duck base French onion soup is excellent & the French hard cider on draught is better than most beer.

We travel a lot, and don't think that everything is always great in the Up-North restaurant scene, but improving. But have to give a big shout-out to Café Sante for food and service excellence, Our server, Robin, was very helpful with our wine and food selections, brought us a comp appetizer, and rocked the house with his wonderful service.

We had a wonderful dinner at Cafe Sante on Monday. The setting by the harbor in downtown Boyne City was charming. The service was great and very attentive. I had the special pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon with couscous. My wife had the broiled whitefish. Both entrees were excellent as were our Sante salads and the dessert we shared. Will... More

I had the Strawberry special consisting of a strawberry salad, pork tenderloin doused in strawberries and a pot de creme which was intense chocolate and delicious. My wife had the pork tenderloin and the ratatouille salad. Our son the lamb rack and our daughter in law the ratatouille salad... More

We ordered the Shrimp Louis salad, the pork with toast points, the fire roasted pizza. Our bill was $19. Happy hour is every day from 3-6. Service was... More

Sante offers a perfect combination of great service, delicious food and a very pleasant atmosphere. From appetizers to dessert, we always enjoy our meal. Good wine too. Some favorites are the salmon, lamb chop and pasta bolognese entrees plus whatever special is on the menu. Kids love the giant bowl of pasta. Chocolate pot de creme dessert is always a... More

A wonderful European dinner in Boyne City! We had Michigan fish dishes as well as French specialities last night and everyone was delighted. This wasn't an easy group to please but everyone really enjoyed their meal. The salmon was fresh and prepared perfectly, the French beef my wife enjoyed was very tasty. We found the prices reasonable for the outstanding... More

My friends and I eat at Cafe Sante 3 or 4 times a year. Have never been disappointed in any of the breakfasts, lunches or suppers that we have eaten here. Boyne City and nearby Charlevoix and Petoskey have many very good restaurants, but Cafe Sante' is my favorite. An added feature is Mother Nature's spectacular sunsets in the evening... More

My boyfriend and I went here on our first real date last fall, and we both enjoyed the maihi maihi very much! We went there again for my birthday and had the asparagus dinner and it was pretty awesome! I am not to fond of green peppers so the waiter had the cook make sure there was none in my... More

We went to Cafe Sante prior to seeing a musical review at a nearby Performing Arts Center. The staff who greeted us were welcoming and enthusiastic. We were seated on the covered patio. The slow down in service began as we ordered cocktails. Our waiter was not familiar with the restaurant's drink menu and did not seem to have a... More
