Stopped for a blueberry scone to go--that's all I got. But, made with fake blueberries. Yuck. Very nice server.

I was surprised by the $11.99 price for a sandwich with kettle chips although the sandwich was excellent. It was a splurge. My friend got the turkey dinner and was not pleased. He said the meal was over salted and the turkey had been re-heated on the grill and was dry. Friendly service.

Not being impressed by the lodge breakfast we ventured down the street to the Taste of Ely. The food was great and the homemade sausage really made the meal. We will have to come back for lunch next year.

The absolutely best blueberry scone I have ever had. We were on our way home and stopped in to get some bakery to go all they had left were scones. Once on the road my husband and I took a bite of the scones and thought why didn't I get more. They had "Fresh" blueberries and were moist not hard... More

We had a very tasty breakfast on a VERY BUSY Saturday morning. The cafe is convenient to shopping in town in Ely.

When you are starting or finishing your BWCA wilderness adventure you need to stock up on a hearty breakfast...eggs, original toast, special sausage, hash browns and a welcome smile from the staff. We just did breakfast there but it was all Super. They are open early and it helps put some fuel in your paddling future!

We must say that we experienced the taste of Ely on Tuesday nights out they blocked off the streets and played live music and the Taste of Ely is the place to go.

This lovely little restaurant should be on your list of places to stop! The food is wonderful, the servers very friendly, and the atmosphere is fun without trying too hard. The Garden Lake Melt is to die for! :)
