The homemade breads and fresh ingredients make the Bluefront Cafe very much worth the stop. Everyone highly enjoyed their meals: bahn mi, organic burger, grilled cheese and homemade soup. I'll definitely stop here the next time I'm in Door County.

We went for dinner about 5:30 on a Wed. Smallish restaurant, friendly staff and great service. We had the burrito which was delicious. We split that and had an extra soup. All great. Glad the Desk Clerk suggested it.

Mu husband and I ate here on a Friday night. We were impressed with both the food--very fresh--and the wonderful service we got. It is a small place, nicely decorated. The menu seems to be a mix of asian and mexican. But the food was freshly made and very tasty. We enjoyed our drinks and even had great desserts. It... More

I try to stop here whenever possible, and I am never disappointed. The food is fresh, the wait staff are attentive, and the decor is attractive. Try the mango iced tea (brewed on the premises) and the lightly battered French fries. This restaurant may be a little "off the beaten" path, but it is well worth seeking out!

The food was amazing. Very fresh. I had the Thai quinoa salad and my husband had the veggie burrito. We shared and both were excellent. Had the strawberry rhubarb crumble for dessert, that too was fabulous. Wish we found this place sooner, would have liked to eat here more. Price was good for the two of us about 35$

My husband and I made a reservation for 6 pm on a Saturday night because the reviews here looked great. And what a disappointment it was! This restaurant is EXTREMELY noisy! My husband ordered the Beef Short Ribs which were very dried out. I ordered the Shrimp Wontons and Asian Salad, which were both just okay. My glass of Chilean... More

Great food; casual atmosphere. Most of the shopping in Sturgeon Bay is on Third Avenue, but there are 2 other business areas in the Bay. It's definitely worth going over the bridge to visit Bluefront Café. We had 6:00 p.m. reservations, and the place was busy. The contemporary décor is well done with a dark polished cement floor with green... More

We stopped here on our way through Sturgeon Bay from Fish Creek. It's off the main drag but well worth the trip. They offer sandwiches, soups and a variety of sodas, beer and wine. The menu offers a different take on typical lunch items with organic and health conscious ingredients. They do have limited hours and days so check the... More

We had just arrived in Sturgeon Bay, picked up the key to our rental cottage, and decided to get some lunch. We asked the rental proprietors, "where do you go for good food." They mentioned several places, including Bluefront Cafe. What a find! We were seated immediately and both the service and the food were outstanding. I had the Southwest... More
