Visited during a very busy lunch time. Staff was very courteous, friendly, and helpful with menu selections. Location is small but that is part of the positive experience. Food was carefully prepared and very good. This is an excellent place to enjoy good food, beverage, and conversation.

We enjoyed having some iced coffee drinks and some homemade desserts that were tasty. They also offered some homemade quilts for sale.

A unique spin on basic dishes makes the food at Louise's Place absolute delicious. The pasties are the best I have had anywhere. Service is friendly and the atmosphere of quaint. Definitely worth the stop if you're in Two Harbors!

Stopped for lunch based on a local recommendation. Good home cooking. Hit the spot. Felt we were eating in our own kitchen with the locals.

A little off main street. Small, home town cafe. Breakfast was good. Not very busy the day we were there. Enjoyed our food.
