Door County is lovely but pricy, The Summer Kitchen Restaurant had a great early bird special breakfast that was just right for our pocketbook. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was so cute with lots of flowers and birds to look at from the many windows.

I had Citrus French Toast which had an orange flavor to the batter that the four pieces of French Bread was dipped in. So as not to diminish the orange taste I went without the maple syrup. The side of bacon was prepared as I had requested, crispy, and was a great accompaniment. The service was prompt and cordial.

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, so an easy walk. The food was wonderful. We ate there every morning of our stay. It is a family owned restaurant with a cute décor and a lovely patio. The food was excellent with ample portions and the bacon was the best I have ever tasted. I would highly recommend it.

Finally got to stop for lunch at The Summer Kitchen and so glad I did. Had the chicken quesadillas and was given the option of 5 soups. I had the chicken dumpling soup and it was like heaven. It reminded me of my grandma's soup. The quesadillas were really good too - so much food that it feed my daughter... More

Our group has at least 2 meals at the Summer Kitchen in the Fall. There is ample parking and it is handicap accessible. Depending of the day and time there could be a waiting line, but they do have outdoor seating also. The inside is a little small but it has a very quaint Northwoods setting. There are usually 4-5...

This chilly day on October we opted for soup & sandwiches. We have been here for breakfast and lunch in other years. Very friendly staff. My sandwich-a grilled ham Reuben- was so delicious, I asked our server to let the chef know how much I enjoyed it. She did, and he came out to say thanks! Charming country gardens outside... More
