So-so breakfast

Our friends love Che'f's Hat, we finally had a chance to try it on a quiet Winter weekend and weren't too impressed. The staff was very friendly, but the food was average and I thought portions were small. We'd try it again in Summer for lunch, but w/ all the other good options in Door County we... read more

Solid place for a hearty breakfast before heading out on an adventurous day on the bay or in the state park.

We stopped by here late one evening after photographing the sunset and were pleased to find that they were still serving dessert out on their patio. Great cherry pie! We came back later in the week for lunch. Lots to choose from on an eclectic menu.

Every time we are in Door we try something new. This was our first time to the Chef's Hat. The cafe is cozy and cute inside. They have a nice variety of breakfast and lunch items in winter. Prices are $9-$13 which is pretty consistent with other places. I would recommend the Half-It option - for $9.99 I had a... More

We visited this place in the spring as well and loved it so much we visited the next morning and our first morning this time around. I am pretty sure I could have made a meal out of the scones but then I would have been missing out on their excellent breakfast. We will be back!

I am a tourist turned local, and since moving to Door County, my husband and I have been trying as many places as we can. We stopped in at Chef's Hat with my mother-in-law today, and we were met with a crowd. Now, being a beautiful Saturday in the midst of the autumn tourist season, this wasn't unexpected, and we...

We entered thru what I think is the back door, and were greeted warmly as we were guided to another room to wait for a table. This is where I stood watching desserts, coffee and drInks were prepared. I noticed that it seemed to be a bit messy/dirty back there, which turned me off a little. We were seated quickly.... More

Had a great Lunch at Chef's Hat. I had a bacon, mushroom and Swiss burger and it was awesome. My wife had a half sandwich and soup. The soup was a pumpkin bisque. Overall it was a great lunch. I will be back for sure.
