There is a soup buffet that has 5 choices. Almost every menu item comes with soup. I tried 2 both were pretty good. Had a $10 grilled cheese, averagely good. This place was good, wouldn't rush back, but good.

Super soup bar. Chicken wrap delicious, as is cherry pie. Huge flower baskets on porch & little gazebo room is a nice spot to sit.

The city for this restaurant might be Sister Bay, WI.

Starting with the good comments. The people are very friendly. The garden outside the floor to ceiling windows is really neat. The restaurant has good tasting soups and the main courses looked great and fresh. But, the main course don't taste very good and my stomach wasn't happy afterward. They appear to try to be authentic, but the meats and sauces don't seem to simmer with the peppers and other seasonings, so they didn't taste fresh or seasoned at all.

If the food had been good, I wouldn't have minded paying twice as much as it was worth. But, the restaurant is way over priced for the taste quality.

Me and my family decided to eat outside on the patio and the wait staff was nice but we ended up spending $50 (including a 20% tip) for a family of 4. The food is very basic for the high price. Both of my kids ordered from the kids menu and one got a cheese pizza and one got a grilled cheese and the meals came with a little fruit and it cost over $9/each with each kid getting something to drink. I got a chicken salad pita that came with a cup pf soup and my husband only got chips and salsa and an iced tea. Hardly worth $50 for food that can be made at a deli.

We came in for a small dinner. Every thing was expensive for the food you would receive. The only small order was a bowl of soup and bread for $10.95. Not worth the money. Very disapointed.
