Description: Sweet Water Cafe is a natural foods restaurant, cafe, bakery, and bar in beautiful Marquette, Michigan serving good food made from scratch using whole, natural, organic, and local ingredients. The philosophy of real food extends to everything on our menu. We select and purchase ingredients that are nearest their natural state; fresh, wholesome and full of nutrients. We then use these ingredients to make our menu, including breads, soups, sauces, entrees, dressings, desserts and cookies from our own recipes. No synthetically hydrogenated fats, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives are ever used in our cooking. The Cafe's staff of chefs, bakers, servers, cleaners and service managers take pride in carrying on the tradition of making good food from scratch, using natural, organic and local ingredients as much as possible. You will find traditional and alternative food and drink. Our recipes and cooking techniques are derived from the diversity of Earth's cultures. Our style of "multicultural cuisine" represents a living art because it borrows from, rather than replicates, traditional ethnic cuisines. It is our mission to provide a broad spectrum of quality, freshly-prepared meals served quickly and professionally in a clean and smoke-free environment.

We enjoyed our meal and the food tasted fresh and tasty. There's a nice selection of gluten free items. No complaints even from the kids! The service started out slow but picked up (the server had too many tables to handle). An added bonus was when a bluegrass ensemble came in a provided free music. The only drawback was the price. And a few more chips with the hummus would be nice.

We enjoy eating at the Sweet Water because of fresh food served in interesting ways. It has a wonderful breakfast menu with fresh takes on old favorites; the feta spinach omelette being my favorite. Because the prices are high (our last breakfast for three was over $38 with tip) we limit our visits to Sweet Water, which is unfortunate, because we love the fresh food and friendly staff.

I went to school here and ate reguarly at SWC. The food is great-Only 5-years ago the price wasn't over-the-top expensive...everything is literally $2-2.50 more now! But the food is good, so I guess no one minds or complained. I mean really? $8 something for oatmeal? Really? (It's great oats, but I remember in 2005 it being like 5.75 or 6.25.

The food here is very good. Decent portions and a varied menu with items you'll find nowhere else. Venison Hash was the special (although they were sold out). It took the waitress 5+ minutes to come to our table. We ordered right away, but it took 35+ minutes for our food to come. (breakfast). Meals are a bit pricey $9-$10 for breakfast. I'd go back, but only if i have 2+ hours to waste.

Some of the best organic offerings in the area. All is prepared fresh and with utmost concern for your health. Although it's good for you, the food is delicious.
