“Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

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

“Ladies Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

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 the entrance.

“Not Obvious - but You Will Be Glad You Looked for This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

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 you spot it - in the middle of a residential block, essentially, -drive around the corner and up the alley to find the little parking area. It's like going to your favorite aunt's for a lovely lunch and then doing a little girl-y shopping! Note - my husband found it a bit too girly but I enjoyed everything about it!!

“Quaint Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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!

“Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

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 quaint old house tastefully decorated. A GEM of a find. Would highly recommend making this cafe your next stop.
