We arrived after they closed. They opened up for us! We had dinner made to go. The staff was very friendly. A very sweet and quaint restaurant!

We stopped hungry following a challenging morning and were greater with a friendly environment. I had a Denver English muffin that was delicious. Coffee was great too! We were able to park our camper near the train museum and walk our dogs along the walking path. Definitely will stop again if in the area!

Louise's Place has wonderful sandwiches and soups plus fantastic bakery items & great coffee. Very budget friendly and great value for what you get! They have great specials but my favorite is their ham salad sandwich.

We stopped by for coffee and a piece of pumpkin bread during a mid-afternoon break in our walking tour of the town. Coffee and bread were good but the gal serving was less than friendly. We weren't even offered a refill on the coffee. I find that very odd. The bright spot was the hand made items that are for... More

Visited during a very busy lunch time. Staff was very courteous, friendly, and helpful with menu selections. Location is small but that is part of the positive experience. Food was carefully prepared and very good. This is an excellent place to enjoy good food, beverage, and conversation.

They have gluten free bread that they make on site. However, they recommended that I not have it due to my Celiac Disease. I appreciated their candor! They made hash browns instead. I was very happy! A cute place with lots of local color and crafts made by local artists!

We enjoyed having some iced coffee drinks and some homemade desserts that were tasty. They also offered some homemade quilts for sale.

A unique spin on basic dishes makes the food at Louise's Place absolute delicious. The pasties are the best I have had anywhere. Service is friendly and the atmosphere of quaint. Definitely worth the stop if you're in Two Harbors!
