Awesome food

Always great service, food, and atmosphere. BYOB very nice feature. Great selection on the menu for whatever you are craving. We've had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and never been disappointed. The best breakfast in Door County.

Nice vegetarian options, tasty but very, very small pasta portions. Their dinner vegetarian entries are more like a side dish size since they assume most people will add meat.

Right off highway 42 in Ephraim is the Chef's Hat Cafe. The breakfast here had a large amount of options that were modern and delicious. Look over the beautiful harbor as you have your breakfast. Service was quick and friendly. Fresh ingredients and a talented chef make this a stop you don't want to miss.

Very casual fare...hearty meals on menu that are very health conscious and savory too. From salads, wraps, sandwiches among many other entrees. Staff is always very accommodating and attentive without being annoying. Main chef does on occasion come out and ask how your meal was and that was a very nice touch too. The place is sparkling clean and the... More

We arrived for a late breakfast only to learn that the kitchen had already begun the switch over to lunch (we missed it by less than 5 minutes). So we stayed for lunch. I opted for the half-it with a turkey/dried cranberry/pecan/gorgonzola cheese sandwich, along with chips and navy/black bean soup. The filling on my sandwich was delicious though the... More

We stopped here on our last morning in town. We were quickly greated and seated. Everyone was very friendly and it has a very warm atmosphere. I almost didnt feel like we were in a restaurant. We both ordered a drink or coffee and a snickers (?) I think it was latte. The latte was absolutely delicious! Im wanting another... More

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 won't be back...

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
