I had a Caesar salad and a crab cake sandwich. Salad was very ordinary. Croutons were store bought not homemade as indicated on the menu. Crab sandwich was good served with ruffles potato chips. I would rather if had fruit or a healthy alternative.

I was looking for a break from chain eateries and pizza-talian restaurants heavy on pasta. THE CAFE is in an unassuming business strip on SR 315. Inside the decor is sophisticated, more bistro than suburb. I arrived just before 5 PM as they were setting...More

We came for the stone crabs, but keep coming back. A few days a week, in season, The Cafe will offer fresh, well cared for Florida stone crabs (call for availability, a tough find in Wilkes-Barre). We have been back several times and have been...More

Excellent dinner and service. We had plans for a movie and were a little rushed. Staff made sure we got out in a reasonable time. The only reason I gave 4 stars was the crab claw appetizer. Ordered a 1/2 pound of stone crab claws...More

Food very good and filling. Crab cake and spinach salad, vegetarian lazanga very good. Wait staff attentive, not pushy. Atmosphere has an uppity vibe, low lighting, water glasses, fabric napkins. The best was the desert. Banana fritter was superb. Highly recommend trying it.
