A good Sunday Brunch

It was busy and they were out of a few items, but the food was great. The view from the back over Lake Superior was great.

We sat outside to eat our lunch and enjoyed an amazing view! We both had the soup and salad bar and it was good. The service was good. Again, fantastic view!

The décor is wonderful, and so is the food. Gives you a true up north experience. I highly recommend the torsk dinner. Fully Scandinavian. Comes with a tub of butter for dipping the torsk - which is just as good as crab legs, and includes Lefse.

This cafe has excellent food and the location overlooks beautiful Lake Superior. There are delightful inside as well as outside and patio seating. It definitely has a Minnesota Northshore feel and menu options.

We pulled in here by default as a lot of the places were closed due to the off season. Kind of a strange place visually however the food was excellent and great service too. We had the beef pot pie and a hamburger and fries. Looks like the place has an awesome view and patio, which would be nice to... More

Hi We stopped here and had the all you can eat Walleye dinner. It came with Walleye strips, fires, and Salad bar. This is the first time; I have had Walleye that I honestly didn't like. It had some type of seasoning that just didn't taste that great. When the waitress asked if we wanted more, both my wife and... More

Had a fantastic Scandanavian meal! Homemade! Will be back this summer for herring here! Nothing fancy. Food quality is more important to me than decor! Red cabbage was the best! Lefse was so-so (nothing to brag about). Meatballs were super!

We had the prime rib and it was perfection itself, along with the Yukon gold potatoes and a wonderful mango craison side dish we left very full. The meal came with the salad... More
