I have been there only once and I enjoyed the food. When I get back to the area I will stop again to eat.

I've come here for lunch so many times and just love it. The salads are absolutely fabulous and loaded with lots of veggies, and the dressings are made from scratch and some of the best you'll ever find anywhere. And the quiche is to die for; likewise the soup. Dani, our server, today was great.

I came into Toledo for business and I was told that I must go to the Oliver house before I left town so I listened the guy and I wasn't disappointed. The bartender Jenny K. was the best! She directed me to few local brews that were great and she stayed socially connected to her customers. Loved the visit, thanks... More

Excellent, attentive service from James was much appreciated. Wonderful to sit by the window with a pot of hot tea to share with my daughter, watching the snow fall. Lunch and dessert - creative, delicious. Will visit again, when I visit my daughter in Toledo!

From the great coffee to the beautiful array of tempting treats, all coupled with the exceptionally friendly and dedicated service (Tina was wonderful!), The Cafe is a lovely place for breakfast, lunch, coffee, or "just because" ....

Driving through Toledo and checked Trip Advisor where to get a good lunch. Had a hard time finding The Cafe. But once in, ate in the bar area. Bartender and Waitress were great!! The Pistachio Chicken salad was adequate... not great, but ok. Same with the Cranberry Quiche. Would I ever go back? Probably not. Don't know how it got... More

It was girls' day out and we stopped in for a quick beer sampling before going upstairs to the Maumee Brewing Co. Jenny K. was welcoming and great! We'll be back for sure!

I have been here several times and love their cranberry mozzarella quiche and the Parisian salad. You can get it as a combo and it's still filling! There were 6 of us this visit, and I made reservations at 11:30 am. It's better too I think when you have a bigger group and to arrive early for lunch. Tina S... More
