This fine restaurant was recommended to me by a local motel owner. The staff was very helpful and thorough and menu selections/specials very appealing. My friend and I ordered the local speciality, miner pasty, and found the selection to be very tasty--it was difficulty to pass on the special which was a Thai dish. The cafe was very busy but...

We stopped by on a Friday around noon. Although the place was full, we were seated in a reasonable amount of time and had a wonderful lunch. The soups were delicious. May I recommend the harvest vegetable? My husband and I shared a walleye sandwich which was enough food, but next time I might order a whole one for myself.... More

We ate supper at the Vanilla Bean Restaurant in Two Harbors Minnesota and found the food good. There is a very limited menu selection, but the food is very tasty. We will try this place again if and when we return.

Wild rice soup was really good, but grilled cheese and Mac n cheese were just ok. Wait staff was fine but not overly friendly. The place was very busy...maybe we just ordered wrong.

Had a delightful lunch here! My hubby had the Herring and it was great. I had the Miner's Pastry and it was wonderful! But the best was their prize winning bread pudding! Everyone should try it! The waitress was very congenial and gave great service. We would definitely go back!

Having stopped for coffee one morning and been impressed with the breakfasts I saw coming out of the kitchen., my husband and I went for lunch on a rainy August day. He had loaded potato soup and I had the daily sandwich special. Both were delicious, served piping hot, and a definite notch above what we expected. The soup was... More

Great food, great atmosphere, great service. I highly recommend a stop on your way up the shore in this cute restaurant. I loved the chicken and wild rice soup and smokehouse chicken sandwich. Both lived up to there billing.

We stopped off for breakfast here on our way up to Door County. The food was very good and the service quick and friendly. We had pretty standard breakfast fare but there were some very interesting pancake options on offer, including some unusual Scandinavian ones. Worth a visit.

I ordered a "build your own burger" that came with a choice of sides. I chose coleslaw. The burger was only fair as far as quality goes. It was a little tough and chewy. The side of coleslaw was in a tiny plastic cup like you would receive a side of tartar sauce in. The cabbage and carrots were brown... More
