We ordered two turkey pesto sandwiches with cole slaw for pick up. We brought them to a shaded picnic table at the county fairgrounds less than a mile away from the cafe. It was the best tasting lunch we’ve had in ages. Everything was very...delicious and freshly made. They have gluten free bread which tastes better than ‘regular’. Ate here two years ago and it was awesome then too. Highly recommend this place.More

A friend recommended The Cafe for lunch... so we stopped and were very pleasantly surprised . Great service in a small location. Great fresh iced tea. I had a burger and wife had a BLT... both were excellent!! I think the place would be busy...on weekends... Highly recommended for a stop in a great town.More

Great food. Hamburger and creamy chicken sandwich were exceptional. Even more amazing was the savory chicken soup! I suspect a chef works here, not a cook! Cute, clean place, like the art. Great service and value.

I realize there is a mask mandate in this county, but unfortunately I would not consider this a "covid sanitary" or friendly place. Medical exemptions are not an option at this facility, so if you do not own a mask be very careful. They are...not handling their masks properly when handing them to customers (holding at the nose of the mask without gloves instead of at the ear strings). They were going to refuse service unless we put the contaminated face mask on. We did not have these issues at other restaurants in town. Everyone else followed safety guidelines in terms of handling masks properly, or welcomed medical exemptions without prejudice.More

We were 10 people having done the Appleton-Whittell Christmas Bird Count, and needing a Covid-cautious venue for lunch. The Cafe was able to put us all outside in the patio with tables more than 6 feet apart. We made the reservations several days ahead of...the date, but they were not very busy on this Saturday, and there was no wait. The burgers were delicious, especially the rare Chipotle Special. All burgers came with a side of French fries, sweet potato fries, house salad, or soup, etc. I had the delicious Chicken Taco soup, and could have easily made it my whole meal.. They have some beers on draft, and I loved the Porter they served. We will be back.More

The Cafe provides delivery to most local vineyards. We ordered for a large group and the food was delivered very timely and it was all amazing! The green chili burger was the best burger I've had! The Onion rings and fries were great. The grilled...cheese was great as well. I can't wait to come back and do another delivery to a winery in beautiful Elgin.More

My wife and I usually get food to go here, but yesterday we decided to eat in. The sandwiches were good, but the coleslaw was poorly prepared. I don't recommend sitting next to the front windows as you will have strong competition for your food...from the flies, which completely ruined our lunch as we were constantly swatting them away.More

We’ve done takeout orders for lunch several times in the last couple of months and every time we have had delicious food! The staff are welcoming and the service is good.
