Fantastic

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... read more

Wine pairings and the organic, local fare are great. Scallops to squash raviolli to duck... I haven't ever eaten anything there I never cared for.

I've never been one for fancy type dinners but this place tot ally changed the way I feel about "fancy". It is just one of the best places to eat up north.

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

We enjoyed both lunch and dinner and the restaurant is always hit for us. The service and food presentation along with the ambiance are outstanding.

We have taken trips up the shore just to eat here. The food is amazing but quite expensive. Just for a ribeye with no sides it was $26. The atmosphere is ok and the building is tiny.. I go there when I get the rotary coupons only because I enjoy the shore and the food.

We both had wonderful meals however the preparation and presentation of the Sea Bass (a special the night we were there) was incredible. Too bad I can't give this chef 10 stars!

Whenever we travel up the north shore we try to make it a point go stop here for lunch. The daily specials are very good. We don't eat meat and are always able to find something good to eat.

Loved the New Scenic Cafe. We have been there twice and both times had great meals. Inventive combinations and fresh ingredients made the dishes we had wonderfully tasty. The choices had some vegetarian and fish as well as beef options. The pickled beet salad was wonderful. I had Salmon with bacon crumbles and celeriac. My husband had a leek frittata... More
