Real good food, nice size servings, interesting dishes and a bit pricey. Had to wait for 40 minutes for a table even though many were vacant. Must be a staffing issue. Bakery next door looked good, but again is very pricey. One seated service was okay, but slow due to the crowd. All in all, will go back and try... More

We decided to try this place based on ratings and good reviews. The restaurant was packed, the tables were squeezed closely together and the noise level was too high for conversation. Although the food was good, it was fairly expensive for the size of the portions.

Loved the food and the wonderful selection on the menu. It was hard to decide what to eat, so we split the blueberry pancakes (with delicious homemade syrup) and the quinoa corn fritter meal. Definitely a must try breakfast place!

Very modern design breakfast/lunch place with adjacent bakery. Aromas from bakery are a great sensory welcome. Egg white omelette was good. Roasted peppers and tomatoes are not to be missed. Use local producers.

Best hamburger I have had in Lake Geneva. Great salads. They try to use organic and/or locally grown ingredients. Simple Bakery is right next store.

Simple is only open for breakfast and lunch. Portions are generous. Service over the weekday lunch hour can be slower - but I've learned to let the server I'm on my lunch hour so we order right away and get the check right away -- that solved the problem. The food is excellent!!! I've never been disappointed. Highly recommend.

Knew it had to good when there was a line before it opened on Sunday morning. Casual setting with good food and good service. Tried the quinoa/corn fritter with eggs and was not disappointed!
