I have been here for breakfasts and lunches and must say I prefer their lunches. A few notes on the breakfast items: every time I order the quiches they are dried out so I have given up on that for good. I have had one of the morning "specials" which happened to be a Door County Cherry Cheese Stuffed French Toast and I'm still dreaming of it...excellent! They have a lot of gourmet choices on the omelets which are the puffy type and are good. You can get some bakery like muffins etc. and a breakfast sandwich although it is a limited menu and don't expect a big platter of food. I feel the lunches though are the main attraction here. Soups, salads and sandwiches have always been very good. I like the fact that you can eat at the outside tables in summer too but the atmosphere indoors is bright and very nice with special touches. You do have to place your own order and they will deliver it to your table.

This downtown spot is great for a quick bite. Their forte is soup, but all of their offerings are good and the prices very fair.

Went downtown for a shopping spree and breakfast at the Red Onion. Delicious omelet and cafe au lait. Great atmosphere. Will be back.

Recently visited for 3 to go orders. Service is not fast. Waited 30 minutes for 3 sanwiches. Upon leaving, I said, the soup is in here, right? I was then told you have to get it yourself. Someone might have explained that when I placed the order. Turkey and tuna sandwiches were good, but not outstanding. Grilled cheese was bland, soggy and way overpriced. Chowder was starchy and full of potatoes. If there was meat, I didn't see any. Paid over $23 for 3 soup sandwich combos. Not worth it and won't be back.

I have been stopping in here for over a year now and never had a bad experience. The service is always fast and friendly. The food choices are great and the daily specials are perfect. They have a great soup and sandwich choice with normally 2 soups and chili in the winter time. The food is made fresh and comes out fast. The atmosphere is pleasant with a choice for seating for business conversation or friendly lunch talk.
