I guess it all depends on expectations. I was very disappointed with the quality of coffee served in this cafe. It really tasted to me like instant coffee but I was expecting a real Italian capuccino from freshly ground beans in a real espresso machine. The salads and sandwiches were quite good, though, and the atmosphere was quaint and homey.

A quaint coffee house that serves a small offering of salads and sandwiches. The sea salt and Carmel latte was FANTASTIC!
It was a big bonus for me because the wife loved it. The decor and fact the shop sells purses and other small items was a benefit to my other half.

I had Caesar chicken panini and it was very tasty, but needed a bit more chicken. Wife had chicken salad croissant and also thought it was tasty but needed more chicken. Neither was seriously short, just a bit more. Wine was very good and served at the right temperature. The ambiance is great and the service was outstanding. All in all a great lunch.

Cute little place in downtown Rhinelander called the Crimson Cafe. Wonderful friendly staff and delicious food. Very busy with tables inside and outside. Would go there again.
