There was way to much to eat but what I did eat of the portabello sandwich was delicious! My friend had the hummus and veggie and she liked it as well (also huge)!

When The Dish first opened, it was a destination lunch location for many locals. We frequently ate their several times a week. However, that's now become a few times a year.

The short review: Day one, had smoothies. Day two, redux. The long review: Close to the bay, outdoor tables, friendly staff, nice, small casual cafe. We had smoothies and the choices were many and varied...and good!

Came here as the queue at Brew was huge and we only had half an hour on the parking meter. Great breakfast burrito with salsa and if you don't like eggs you can get a toasted sandwich from the lunch menu. They're flexible on fillings too.

Whenever I'm in Traverse, we eat here at least twice. It is a vegetarian/vegan dream place. They have great food and friendly service. Have yet to have a bad experience.

We stopped in for a light supper. The café wasn't busy and we found the employees to be very pleasant and helpful. The décor is casual but the food is very tasty. I had a chicken/cherry wrap; it's Traverse City so you must have cherries! The wrap was very good with lots of flavor. I asked for additional dressing and... More

We stopped in here yesterday for a quick light lunch before heading to the airport. The menu has lots of great healthy options. There were at least 6 soups and they all sounded great. We split a shrimp wrap that was so fresh and not overly dressed. There are wonderful salads and quesadilla's as well as sandwiches. I thought it... More

this cafe was recommended by a store clerk on Front St and it was well worth it. Had the Cherry Daze Wrap that had great flavor and freshness. Take your time looking at the menu and don't rush, but once you make a choice you will be very happy.
