We had an excellent lunch here. The menu is varied and offers healthy options. My soup and wrap were delicious! The staff was pleasant and helpful. If I am in Sturgeon Bay again I will definitely dine here again!

I love Bluefront, but wanted to point out to anyone thinking of going here that it is closed for the month of January and reopens on Feb 1st. Don't want anyone to be disappointed. Best place to eat in Door County, good things come to those who wait...

This cafe was recommended by our B&B and it was so good, we ate there twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. This is a charming little cafe with delicious food and great service. I highly recommend grilled turkey and brie sandwich. The ingredients were all fresh and we enjoyed some wonderful cherry cobbler. Highly recommended!

Went for lunch on Saturday. Charming place. The staff and the food, both excellent! The soup of the day was delicious and absolutely loved the Portabella Rueben. Too full for dessert but was very tempted...next time!

We ate lunch here while on our little getaway. It was a darling little cafe. All the staff were friendly. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The menu wasn't overly loaded, but did have a nice selection of sandwichs both hot and cold. Both our sandwiches were great. The fries were good as well. They had a nice selection... More

I've been here twice. Once I got a huge mound of nachos that was more like a gourmet pile of delicious-ness, and the second time I got a black bean burger. Let me tell you, it was the best I've had! Really great food, service, and atmosphere.

This restaurant has great lunches! The service was excellent even with the restaurant being packed! They let you enjoy our lunch and you are not made to feel rushed.

Friendly staff and great service! I had the meatloaf sandwhich. Was full of flavor and had a nice spicy kick to it. Will definitely be coming back. Everything was fresh and delicious.
