Café Sante, is a very nice place to dine have lunch or dinner. It is on the waterfront with great views. The food is always delicious. The wait staff are well trained and do a great job. Some of the entertainment has some need of improvement, but other than that great place to go. A little pricy, but you get... More

Food is wonderful. Never disappoints. Also go to Pearls if you are in the area. Three couples everyone loved the food. The steaks were perfectly cooked. Will be going back for a third visit this week.

Apparently early Spring is the best time for the meats weight and taste - and last night... More

We stopped here for a late dinner on a weekend, and only had to wait a short time, at the bar, for a table. Super friendly bartenders who offer up a large & good selection of beer, wine and spirits. Great atmosphere with good, live acoustic music playing. We ordered 3 different wood fired pizzas, Truffled Wild Mushroom, Spinach &... More

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
