We recently ate at the Crooked Spoon Cafe and greatly enjoyed it. We were there for lunch and would have loved to try a dinner there but lacked time. Like at the Angry Trout Cafe, also in Grand Marais, this is an upscale cafe that serves delicious, fresh food with some original twists. Our lunch was absolutely delicious.

Excellent BLT. The unusual flavors of the curry mayo and sweet layer on bacon worked for me. Good service. Busy little place.

We visited for lunch on a weekday and were seated quickly. I had the quiche which was the special, with a balsamic flavoring and fresh sald. Very tasty! The staff was friendly and helpful. I also enjoyed their unsweetened ice tea. We will definitely return!

We knew the food here is very good. Couldn't bring myself to order the Alpaca burger so I ordered a pastrami sandwich with seasoned popcorn instead. Amazing sandwich, the rosemary popcorn is delicious as was my sandwich. We had intended to have dessert too, but my entrée sandwich was just too big. Very good food and very friendly and attentive...

We cheated on the Crooked Spoon this summer and ate dinner instead at the Angry Trout - but decided to have after dinner drinks and desert at the Crooked Spoon anyway. Boy am I glad we did. They have a new rooftree dining area for just drinks, apps and desert. It offers great views of the harbor and sunset in... More
