Wonderful wholesome food

Best place to eat when visiting the north shore! I always make it a point to come here whenever I am visiting Duluth or Grand Marais.

This place has always caught my attention. I have been here by myself, on a quiet night out with a friend and with my family. Every time the food has been great, tasteful and the atmosphere accommodating. I was there with my family and the service was very good, the selection of food may be smaller than other restaurants but... More

The scallops were fantastic and the duck was tender and moist. Chocolate cremeaux with hot air candy is definitely recommended. Best meal of my life.

My husband and I found this place a couple of years ago and it is now a must stop on any trip we take to the North Shore. I love that the environment is not too fancy but the food is. You really can't go wrong ordering anything off of the menu, everything exceeds your expectations. We have enjoyed some... More

So easy to find up the shore, and I had never been there before! What a wonderful experience, starting with being seated immediately at a wonderful table overlooking the lake. I was glad we had reservations as a couple hours later, the vestibule became crowded with patrons waiting to be seated. I hope at least a few of them were... More

Hard to beat. Always unique! A real gem along (Lake)Superior's North Shore. Never pass the opportunity to experience the Cafe.
