“Leif's Something to be Desired”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

OK. Quick review. This is a cafe. It looks like a cafe so don't expect a fine dining experience. My wife had a Rueben, which she said was below average. I had a hamburger that was overcooked but tasted good anyhow. The fries and onion rings are pre-frozen so taste like fries and onion rings in every mom & pop restaurant. I would put the quality of food on par with McDonalds. The neatest thing about this place is that they have colorful coffee mugs on each table, which you can buy and take home.

Would we go back? Probably not. It does not deserve being rated as #2 in Eagle River unless all the rest are abominable.

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Dined here the first week of June. I had the Chef's Salad and it was fresh and huge. Other people in the party had wraps which also were very good. Good size portions. Very homey.
Highly recommend.

“Great Little Place”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Overall very good. Chicken and Dumpling was very good, light and fluffy massive dumpling. . BLT Club on marble rye had lots of thick bacon and turkey. Cranberry chutney and turkey sandwich was served on a soft and warm roll with a bit too much (believe it or not) thick bacon, but was very good. Omelet was big and a little greasy. Staff was VERY friendly.

“Cafe”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Stopped here because the Supper Club we were hoping to stop at was not open for another 45 min and we were too hungrey to wait. Service was quick and friendly, food was homemade. We went back for breakfast the next day and had the fish fry Friday. Both also very good and all at a great price. Will stop again when back in the area.
