We never fail to go here when Up North every summer. It's still good but it seemed to us this year the caliber of serving staff had slipped a bit. Also, during one visit on an unusually warm day we sat outside where the overhead doors were only partially open. I got up and opened the door to the patio... More

We were fortunate enough to have a "local" recommend this restaurant to us. While our group was gathered on the sidewalk discussing places to eat, someone local overheard us and suggested we try Cafe Sante. I'm so glad we listened.

My husband and I stopped at Cafe Sante' for lunch today on our way from Harbor Springs to Kalamazoo. We hadn't been to Boyne City before and just happened to see this cafe. Great lunch with water view of Lake Charlevoix. The Quiche Lorraine comes w/ a little bowl of fresh berries -- both delicious. We shared a nice house... More

The atmosphere and food were wonderful! Melissa, our server, was great and so attentive. We had salad, duck French onion soup (WOW), Chicken Dijon and Margherita pizza. We sat right by the window looking out onto the lake!

We went here for dinner with a party of 7 during Fourth of July week, so we had to wait about an hour for a table, but it was well worth the wait. Plus, there is a lovely park right there on Lake Charlevoix if you want to sit on a bench and look at the water, or there are... More

It's all good! A must if you like high end restaurants, impressive wine selection, and impeccable service. Great appetizers and wine, even if it's not a dinner stop, you won't be sorry.
