Ordered a take out lunch for four from Dish. Their menu has a great selection of sandwiches and wraps - it was difficult to choose! They were also accommodating when we asked for the sandwiches that are typically served warm and/or grilled to be served...More

Great salads and sandwiches with a vegetarian slant. Onassis salad a stand out. Self-serve soups are good and the staff is patient and very friendly. On Union Street just south of Front Street you can combine shopping with a healthy food stop.

It was hot in Traverse City when we stopped to have lunch at the Dish Cafe. My husband and I each had a wrap, which is not usually my first choice for lunch as the wrap usually overpowers the contents. This wrap was really delicious....More

Great soups, there are always at least 6 soups to choose from. Good panini sandwiches. Mainly a downtown workers lunch spot, but in the winter, we love to go for their soups. Kind of a hole in the wall, but everyone in there is super...More

I've enjoyed the food there, specifically one sandwich but the four times I have ordered it there was a mistake with my order THREE times. Do you even listen when I order? How long does it take? Geesh.
