Seriously one of the best meals we have had in a while. The chef has a great menu and she executes it perfectly! I had the vegetarian polenta dish and my husband had the lake trout...both were fabulous! Great wine list, desserts was great! Loved...More

I love "Farm to Table Restaurants." Cafe Seiche does represent that standard almost perfectly. Everything that our group of four ordered was mostly locally sourced...not sure of the beef tenderloin nor the trout. During our week long stay on Madeline Island, I never saw any...More

We try to make it here about every other time we go to the island. The food is the best I have ever had but it is a bit expensive. Probably well worth it.
