It will be sad to see the Cafe Ole close its doors when Fannie Mae leaves its Wisconsin location. This is one of my favorite local spots to unwind. The staff is very friendly and treats everyone like an old friend. The food is good...More

We've gone to this restaurant many times. There's something for every member of my family and we share plates. Great seafood includes a tuna kebab plate and deliciously seasoned broiled calamari. We also like the Tel Aviv Nachos, four to a plate, a cold treat,...More

Have eaten here a few times. Nothing to write home about but it's a decent lunch for a fair price. Have had several items and they were all average.

We had a pleasant lunch on a Saturday at Cafe Ole with the Tomato Bisque soup and Tramazzini (one with bacon, one with salmon). Excellent service and tasty food. We highly recommend this cafe.

A quick lunch while shopping. You order at the register, get a table number, and they deliver your meal to your table. Had seafood stew over rice, a pleasant dish, quickly served, Nothing fancy but good if you need a quick meal.
