Went to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and wound up at Simple for lunch. It was decent, but not outstanding. Decent value for what you get.

Best breakfast place in Lake Geneva. This establishment works hard to bring in fresh locally sourced (organic if possible) ingredients. I prefer their breakfast to their lunch. Ask for coffee to go when you leave! Simple Bakery next door is excellent.

There is a gate directly to the side patio and into the restaurant without stairs. A double stroller is always difficult in doorways.
