If you want to eat some tasty bites, this is the place. Be prepared to sit in tight quarters. Or take out like we did and enjoyed at Lampe Park.

I went here for lunch today on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant is located in a tiny strip mall. The place itself is also tiny- about 12 tables or so. It has cute sunflower decorations and both chairs and ottomans to sit on at the tables. I was quickly greeted and told to sit wherever I liked. The... More

By chance took a short walk from my hotel to find a quick but nutritious meal. With no idea, spotted the cafe and entered. Small but very nice atmosphere - appointment, great sound track playing - but that is not the reason you sit down. The food was outstanding. Prepared quickly and with fresh ingredients. The panini sandwich selection is... More

Cafe Girasole is a stand-by for a delicious lunch of soup, sandwich, and dessert. The best part? There are no slot machines as scenery in this cute cafe!

I eat here fairly often for lunch. The service is always prompt and friendly. The food is delicious! I love the Curried Chicken Sandwich along with the Sweet potato soup. The K2 is the bomb. The grilled vegetable wrap is very filling and satisfying.

Cafe Girasole was recommend to us for lunch. So, the four of us stopped by for lunch. We all had a different wrap or sandwich and the food was great! Also the home brewed Mango Ice tea was excellent! We highly recommend Cafe Girasole! Wayne Beloit, WI

OMG! What a great lunch spot! I had the "K-2" sandwich on gluten free bread with goat cheese in place of Brie. The black currant chutney was the ultimate compliment to this sandwich. I love this place! Would eat there everyday if I could. My new favorite restaurant!!!

This was catered to us at a luncheon and I thought their sandwich choices was too few and all healthy, and if I am going to meet with a group once a month, I want to eat non-healthy for one meal.

We found this sweet spot during a recent vacation and are so glad we did. The food is a fun, modern take on traditional comfort foods. There is no lack of options when it comes to sandwiches, and they're all amazing. Dare to be bold here, order something you may not usually select, and I promise you it will work...genius!!!...

I've been through this town a hundred times and never knew this little gem existed til I saw it on TA. Very busy lunch crowd. Service was excellent and everyone working there very friendly. I had THE Sandwich panini that came with a house salad for $9.50. Yum!!! They have smoothies, bakery items and homemade soups but I didn't try... More
