If you want an intimate meal with great service and a personal touch, this is the place. Ask about any specials....

“Bon Appetit - International gem on Madison's east side”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

This is one of my favorite places in Madison. From the outside it doesn't look like much -- but don't be fooled. The space is very small, intimate, cozy and warm, with interesting art by the owner/chef, Greg Johnson on the walls. But it's the food that keeps us coming back -- an ever-changing menu of internationally-inspired dishes based on fresh, local ingredients. The portions are not huge (Country Buffet, this is NOT), but the quality is excellent. I also love all the special theme nights -- so creative and fun!

“Cozy and Cool Willy Street Cafe”
Reviewed June 24, 2011

We love Bon Appetit Cafe! The food is fresh, seasonal, local and expertly prepared. Lots of choices for vegetarians, carnivores and everyone in between. Great for dinner or brunch. A great value. Always new, interesting artwork on the walls. Accomodating staff and seasonal menus. A great spot! Larger groups should try ahead.
