A nice surprise. . .

I really enjoyed the sandwich I had at Simple. All of the ingredients played off each other very well -- in a way that I've typically only seen in far fancier establishments. The bakery next door was also very good. It was very busy -- there was a 30 minute wait in the off season at 2 PM on... read more

We enjoyed our brunch offerings and bustling atmosphere of Simple. Although crowded, we had enough space. Menu was loaded with great options. We laughed because the food on the menu had titles such as: Mushroom, Kale, Radish, Tofu, Hashbrown, Squash Fritatta. The titles of the entrees pretty well matched what the ingedients were. Food was flavorful as well as colorful... More

My husband and I ate here and enjoyed it so much we ate there twice in one weekend! The dishes are amazing and ingredients are fresh. The service was very friendly and attentive and we were in and out in less than an hour. Breakfast served all day. And it can be complicated gourmet dish or "plain old" egg or... More

I can't not tell you how much I love eating breakfast in this restaurant... It is absolutely fabulous! This time I had the Blackened Chicken Benedict.. with sweet potato mash, swiss chard, kale, poached eggs all with a Creole Hollandaise ... that was four days ago and I am still thinking how good it was. The service is fabulous, always... More

The food is excellent, all organic, etc. Love having breakfast there. Simple is not so simple because they have an extensive menu to select from. I think anyone going there to eat would be able to find something. Just give yourself time to be able to look at the entire menu. The only reason I gave it 4 out of... More

I love trying new things for breakfast, and their Acorn Squash Chicken Sausage Strata was one of the best "new things" I've tried! The menu is, well, simple - not overcrowded with too many pancake choices, and just the right amount of "not your usual" breakfast dishes. Simple, and incredibly delicious. The waitresses were so very kind and helpful, even... More

I love pancakes and the pancakes here are second to none. Everything is made with care and the quality of all the food is uniformly excellent. I was also impressed by the quality of service and the atmosphere is clean, simple (ha) and enjoyable. Highly recommended!

The best breakfast or lunch in Lake Geneva. Everything on the menu is good! The only worry I have is that it will become too well know and it will be difficult to get a table! Most of the breakfast restaurants in Downtown Lake Geneva are old and seedy, Simple is fresh and lively with a young and attentive staff!... More

I chose to check out Simple after seeing that they featured fresh, natural ingredients. I am so glad I did! I am currently eating a paleo diet and was able to enjoy an amazing eggs benedict dish that was paleOMG delicious! The vibe in Simple is very fun and even though it was freezing outside it felt like a warm... More
