“Good quick breakfast fare”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

If you are looking just for a bagel or burrito breakfast sandwich and a latte this is a nice little place to go. They are open most of the day as I recall and have lunch items as well. There is Wi-Fi if that is important to you and various seating. Located near the center of town close to the lake on a side street.

“solid mediocre”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

The deli we wanted to go was closed for winter. Not knowing where to go, we entered this cafe. It looked cozy and nice. however the food was pretty awful. We had sandwiches and cappuccino. Everything was solid mediocre. The bread for the sandwich was ultra soft, seasoning pretty bad. Not the fresh, homemade, gourmet type of cafe.

“Overpriced!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Had coffees and pastries. It would have been great to get what we ordered! Had a scone before from here and it was so good. This time I was served some sort of cake. A cinnamon roll should not cost $4 no matter where you are unless it fills the plate!

“Good breakfast.”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Only open for breakfast and lunch - free wi fi. Orders are taken at the counter and you can eat in or take out. Many locals came in which for me is always a good sign. The bakery is actually down a side street behind a bistro, while the sign hangs out front. Just walk around the corner towards the lake.

“Just OK lunch”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We were in Grand Lake for lunch, asked a local shop keeper for a lunch suggestion. Were told Fat Cat or Blue Water Bakery. Fat Cat was closed for lunch - after Labor Day - so we went to Blue Water. Food was OK, but felt $10 was too high for just a sandwich when you order at a counter, pick up your food when your name is called, and clear your own table.
