Tasty menu with a bite of history

Set in a beautifully restored Victorian home, the Mulberry Cafe offers a variety of foods for meat-lovers and vegetarians. The historic atmosphere added a lot to our experience. We ate in a room with a tin ceiling, painted wainscoting and a wood stove. Our food was good; I had quiche Lorraine... read more

Stopped for lunch and had an outside table on the patio. Excellent service, good food and fair prices but be careful of the house salad dressing. Waitress brought it on the side and told us to try it before putting it on the salad. It was terrible and we exchanged it for Ranch. Waitress said a lot of people really... More

First this is a lovely little restaurant with good food. If you are considering jumping off the highway for a healthy and tasty lunch at a reasonable price, this is your place. Pleasant staff, nice setting (sat on porch and ate due to lovely weather), and good meal. Mexican white chili, split pea soup and Harvest Salad (dried cherries, dried... More

This is the very first restaurant we have found and eaten at with tripadvisor. We came to this very cute town to visit some family we don't get to see often due to living so far away, and decided that we would use trip advisor after a couple girls at work have been telling me how they love using it.....

Friendly staff, quaint. We stopped for breakfast. What a treat. The French Toast was very good and the bacon was perfectly cooked. We'll be back.

My family was passing through Clare and needed a lunch break, we were lucky to find the Mulberry Cafe, what a unique asset. Lunch was perfect, we even had a high chair for my daughter's doll. Friendly service and the atmosphere is wonderful. We will be recommending to others.

This a hometown cafe with excellent food. The atmosphere is unique and comfortable. Sandwiches are exceptionally good and don't forget a piece of their delicious homemade pie afterwards. After you eat, take time to browse their gift shop for a gift for a special person or for yourself to remember your visit to Clare.

As many times as I've been to the restaurant, I have always had a good meal. The options are a plenty, the food is always fresh, the service is always quick and staff very friendly. I've been coming here for a number of years and I've never had a meal that I didn't like. Great sandwiches, soup, salads are out... More

We parked on Main St, planning to eat at another restaurant when we saw the sandwich board sign for Mulberry Cafe. We were intrigued so took the block east walk to the cafe. We are so glad we did! Beautiful lunches for each of us and some of the most attentive, friendly staff. The historic setting added to the meal's... More

I've always had excellent service and very good food. Food is not typical "up north family" fare that is common. its a little more "sophisticated" up north fare. Tastier, more unusual, a little more expensive, and smaller portions but very good! Great homemade soups, sandwiches and pies. Love the atmosphere. Have eaten here often - live 20 miles away.
