This is such a great place to eat! They have a variety of interesting and unique sandwiches and salads to choose from. Some are always on the menu, and others are seasonal specials. My favorite thing is doing a half and half with a half sandwich and half salad. The summer seasonals have included fresh berries, fig and honey, and... More

The food was good and staff was friendly. Only problem was parking, we had to park on the street and walk in which would not have been a problem but it was raining pretty hars.

We stopped in on our way through Rhinelander. Great lunch and coffee, adults and children were all pleased. If it had been sunny, would of loved hanging out on the back patio.

Great tasting food and large portions. May want to split a full sandwich with another. Strawberry smoothie was very tasty.

This is the type of restaurant ladies like to lunch at with good salads, soup & sandwiches. There is a cute little patio in the back with tables & umbrellas and it is nicely landscaped. This is easy to miss, the signage doesn't really stand out and it is in a former house. Parking is in the back, as is... More

This tiny tea room-type place is so unusual for Rhinelander. I found it on Trip Advisor and went for lunch - what a treat. There are clever plaques and jewelry and accessories for sale all over the place but go for the food and coffee drinks. It's the freshest and most unique salad or sandwich in town, for sure. Once...

A great little place to have coffee or lunch. I enjoy the atmosphere of this former home turned coffee shop. The salads are delicious, the sandwiches delectable. Sea Salt Caramel Latte is my favorite! Stop in for an enjoyable treat!

My husband and I had lunch at the Crimson Cafe today on a recommendation of a gal from Lakeview Living and were totally pleased with everything! I had a half Roasted Red Pepper Pannie with a cup of Chicken Dumpling soup and it was delicious. They are also known for their latties and wines. This cafe is located in a... More

This is a neat place we like to go for lunch. If you don't know where it is located it's kind of hard to find and the parking is not the best, but the food is worth it. The staff is very friendly. They offer a nice lunch menu and the prices are in line. If you are tired of... More
