We love Cafe Sante in Boyne City! So much so that we drove from Traverse City area to have lunch here. This service is always top notch, which accompanies the food selection as it is farm to table fresh, very creative, and always delicious. A "not to be missed restaurant@ when you're in the area or even as a destination!... More

Just wanted something light and tasty to start Valentines Day with my wife. She looked at the menu on line for Cafe Sante and decided this is what she wanted. They have a Happy Hour menu which fit the bill. We ordered Stuffed Mussles, the Shrimp appetizers and a Brick Oven Pizza sausage and pepper. Tickled outt tastebuds for sure.... More

Cafe Sante is snuggled up along lake Charlevoix, and across the street from a park that offers a perfect view of the sunset. The atmosphere is always festive, and they often have live entertainment on the weekends. The staff is very well trained, and they go out of their way to assure that you have a good time.The menu is... More

We have visited Cafe Asante for dinner on several occasions and enjoyed excellent service and good food on each occasion. Enjoy a short walk through the several blocks of the business district or maybe a walk along the water in the adjoining park either before or after dinner. All a very pleasant summertime experience.

Was there for a birthday dinner. My order arrived incorrect. When the order was corrected, I felt as if I was being rushed to leave. My previous visits were always positive but this convinced me not to return. No stars.

Stopped in for a fast meal tonight at Santes and took advantage of Happy Hour specials. The pork rillettes and frieits were very good. We moved on to the Monday dinner special, fire baked pizza. I ordered the Italian sausage and my wife the pepperoni. Both were great.

My family and I went here for breakfast New Year's Eve, and it was a great experience! Service was great, all the servers seemed very nice, and the food was even better...no complaints from our group of 4! They have Plath's smoked meats which I highly recommend, they are delicious and locally made in Petoskey & Cheboygan. The breakfast selection... More

Stopped here for breakfast after checking on our boat one morning (stored in East Jordan for the winter). Great experience. Atmosphere and meal were really a 'cut above', and the service was exceptional - very attentive and sincere. Cool European flair to the menu. Based on other reviews and our experience....You will not be disappointed!

While we had to wait 30 minutes for a free table, we enjoyed the wait while exploring the Cafe's solid Belgian beer selection. Our server, Koz, was professional and confident - helping us navigate the wonderful scallops, exceptional peppercorn beef, and the surprise cocktails. Awesome.
