Twice in the last two weeks we had lunch. What a relaxing pleasant experience in this bistro style converted old home. Tables close together, lots of camaraderie with fellow diners if desired. Now to the food- coffee house menu teas, lattes, coffees, smoothies. Lunches are soup, salad and/or soups. I had brie and apple w/ turkey on cranberry wild rice... More

Stopped based on previous reviews for lunch. Glad we did, food good and fun setting. Staff friendly, parking was a little bit of work but stop was worth.

Just stopped in for lunch based on previous reviews. Glad we did. Really hit the spot on a cold wet day. Food great and service very friendly. Parking is a little work but worth it.

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

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...
