Do go for some of the best food in upper Michigan. Our server Robyn was one of the best no matter where I have eaten. Extremely knowledgeable about the menu, professional courteous, very pleasant to speak with. A positive asset to the restaurant. The Walleye fish was the best I have eaten at any restaurant. The Whitefish was absolutely delicious.... More

Drove into Boyne City hoping to find a simple place for breakfast. Discovered the one I had picked out was closed. Found this one on the water when I went to take some photos. It was rainy, so didn't sit outside, but looked like it would have been wonderful if we could have. I had the Smoked Whitefish Eggs Benedict.... More

Always worth the trip for this beautiful restaurant on the lake! Small plates, big plates, pizzas to share - everything we've gotten has always been cooked to perfection. Excellent cocktail menu - knowledgeable bartenders. Great live music and a spot to watch the sunset!

My boyfriend and I recently moved to Boyne City and tried out Cafe Sante for dinner. It was blueberry season so all of the specials were blueberry-based and although we didn't try the blueberry-based food, we had the blueberry sangria. Delish!!! Our server (sorry, I can't remember her name) was terrific. So informative and pleasant. Our steak dinners were amazing,... More

Locally grown foods fresh each day, prepared to ity. From the moment you enter you are treated as home folk. now it gets interesting, the food a sampling of European style cooking with the Michigan hospitality as an extra. Fantastic food, spirits yet sets well with the total family.

The last place I expected to find a dining establishment with such a foreign flair outside of Europe was in Boyne City! I may as well have been sitting enjoying lunch in Nice, Bern or Strasbourg. The moules avec frites were excellent and the ambiance was comfortably real.
