We had to wait a while to get a table, but it was worth it. We sat outside and it was quite pleasant. The service staff was friendly and attentive. I am a vegetarian and appreciated the variety of options on the menu. I enjoyed my meal but at least one person in our party of four did not care... More

Our party had some mixed feelings Positives: * fun atmosphere * good chicken pesto sandwich * unique menu, not just your standard breakfast items Negatives: * other dishes were dry * was told it would be a 20 minute wait. Turned into a 45 minute wait * restaurant was really loud Might be worth a try again outside of the... More

I was very excited to try this place knowing that it can be difficult to get into on a weekend and how highly it is rated. However, I thought the food was just okay. I think I had higher expectations. Nothing we ordered was bad but nothing was super fantastic either. With the exception of the coffee which was very... More

Stopped in for lunch over 4th of July weekend. It was amazing that we were seated right away! I enjoyed a cup of their yummy coffee. I ordered the curry chicken sandwich and my husband got the pesto chicken sandwich. Both sandwiches were absolutely delicious! If you like curry (mild and just right) you will love that sandwich. If you... More

We went with the family on a Thursday morning at 9am. Had a short wait to sit down but waited a good 35-40 minutes for our food. The food was good but not great. $3 coffee seemed a bit high priced. The inside decor, farm to table concept and yummy bakery attached made it a nice meal overall. It was... More

Had a great breakfast here. 3 in party had eggs all done perfectly as ordered. Pancakes are the best I have ever had. Food was great. It came out of the kitchen fast and hot once order was placed. Our server was slow in taking our order then placing it. Our server greeted us and gave us coffee then proceeded... More

I have been looking for a place like this in Lake Geneva for years. How wonderful to know that your food is farm to table with no GMO's. it is a win-win and very easy to decide to eat here. In fact, everyday I was planning on eating at different places, but always came back to Simple because the food... More

We had been there a few times for breakfast previously, and it was fantastic--we had the Korean bowl and the Apple Cinnamon french toast. Both worth having again. This time we had lunch. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and bf had the tacos. The sandwich was good. Not much you can do with a grilled chicken sandwich but the... More

Simple has good fresh food, medium priced and was clean. The only problem we encountered was it was so noisy we could not carry on a conversation. My ears hurt and were ringing when we left. I will go back again but will ask to sit outside or go on OFF hours.
