The owner is very compassionate about her customers and makes the freshest, tasty, and lovely food

The food is wonderful and I recommend the breakfast menu. The owner cares deeply about what she serves and makes everything homemade. She spoils everyone with her excellent hospitality, as if it is her home!! I highly recommend this wonderful place!

Very creative eat in and take out menu. Loved the turkish coffee. Wonderful desserts , soups, salad and sandwiches all from scratch with quality ingredients...REAL FOOD. Lots of fresh composed salads to choose from as well as housemade granola, muffins, cookies, scones, pies etc. Kind Of "hippy" feel to the place.

All of the sandwiches looked great! I had the Hearty Miner's Omelet. Others had Soo Lox and Jill's Breakfast Burrito. We shared and smiled. Nice food. Nice service. There's a wealth of art on the walls. Highly recommended.

From the moment we walked into Marie Catrib's, it felt like I was back in Wisconsin having breakfast with my Mom. The food was fantastic, reasonably priced, and the service was outstanding. Since it was our first time there (and we tend to over-do it) we ordered 5 dishes for the 2 of us. We had the Panukkaku (because it... More

I make a stop here whenever I'm in town! Always a hoppin' place with a great, creative menu. I can always be sure to find something I've never tried before and know I'll love it! Plus all kinds of classic menu items with their own unique little twist! Great atmosphere with trendy art and decor and a very friendly staff.

If you are gluten free, this place is gold! Not only do they have some of the best gluten free bread i've ever had, but their meat is also top of the line in quality. I've had their roast beef sandwich and the Rueben and both have been superb! The Reuben was ridiculously delicious and is my new favorite here!... More

Good food. A little pricey, but great service and an atmosphere with character. Quite a wait, but were given coffee while we were waiting. A very popular place with good reason.

Everything is house made and delicious at Marie Catrib's. My favorite is the fish tacos (called Bruce Anchor on the menu). My daughter loves the adult Mac and cheese. They also offer a wide range of gluten free options and have a "to go" deli. Try the challah bread! Parking can be a challenge as there are limited spaces behind... More

we live an hour away and just had our first meal here after seeing the reviews. We arrived around 11:30 for lunch and had to sit at the counter, which was fine. We parked in the small lot behind the building. The line for tables started soon thereafter. Service was very good. There is a wide selection with two soups... More
