“Fresh and tasty!”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

At first we weren't sure if this place was open. The last review was a year old. But we heard good things and checked it out. First of all, look for Retro Cafe, not Kite's Kitchen. The Kitchen is a take out bakery/shop, the Cafe is the sit down restaurant. You'll see the Retro Cafe car driving about town if you keep your eyes open.

Second, this is a breakfast/lunch place. Make sure you come early for fresh tasty food. We arrived at 10AM and the place was busy! The wait wasn't long at all though. Maybe we lucked out.

Third, everything is farm fresh! They try hard to get local produce. Not sure if it's all organic, but it's mostly all locally grown.

We were seated in the patio with an umbrella for shade. The host was nice enough to give us a shady table since we had little children, but every table looked to have shade. He also provided the kids with books to entertain them. Our waitress was prompt and attentive. My wife had a greek quiche which she found amazing. The dill sauce really pleased her. I opted for a make your own scramble which was delicious. The side potatoes had a little heat to them and were very good.

We will definitely come back and try the rest of the menu items.

“Worth Looking For”
Reviewed September 14, 2010

Please note that the larger sign in front says "Retro Cafe", they said they are getting a new sign soon but it is easy to miss the smaller "Kites Kitchen" sign on the side of the building and you would not want to miss the breakfast. Ingredients were fresh and flavorful and the staff handled our large party (20 people) exceptionally well. Everyone enjoyed their meal, banana pancakes, made to order scrambles and fresh squeezed lemonade were excellent and the homeade sticky buns made the trip worthwhile themselves. This is a must stop if you are in New Buffalo!

“The best breakfast in Harbor Country”
Reviewed September 1, 2009

The quality, freshness and flavor of the food is great. The organic eggs, great bacon, home made whole grain bread and special flavor combinations for skillets/omlets etc. are so much better than standard breakfast fare. And the sticky buns are just wonderful!

Not recommended. The food was cold, as was the service.
