Always tasty

We usually stop here on our way out of town, although we have also stopped in for lunch during our stay. We haven't had a bad breakfast yet. The fruit plate and cinnamon rolls are always well done! The basic breakfast menu makes for a filling meal. If you need a good and consistent spot, this is... read more

Greek omelet was good, really liked that it came with the tzatziki sauce. Chai latte was delicious. A little pricey, but this place uses quality ingredients - which makes it worth the cost. Service was friendly.

They have the best spinach and artichoke dip ever! Their salads and Greek selections are fabulous too! I highly recommend them for lunch if you are in the Minocqua area!

The Island Café has the best breakfasts in town! Try the vegetarian Eggs Benedict...it is the best! Lunch is also excellent...the sandwiches are very creative and there is a huge variety. All the soups are homemade and excellent as well.

My wife and I visited Island Cafe for breakfast recently having read the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Island Cafe is located on the main drag right before the bridge in Minocqua.
