This is a small local diner and coffee spot where we had lunch. The food was very good and the place had very good business at lunch. I had the cravings melt and my wife had turkey and vegetables wrap. We were pleased with the food. both were served with chips. We would consider stopping in here in the future.

I really cant rate the food because I didn't eat. And I was there 30 minutes before close. I was referred to this place by someone - I needed coffee and wifil for 15 minutes so I stopped here. It's a little bit hard to get to depending on what direction your coming from. -Uturns and quick turns. It's easy... More

Not impressed at all with our breakfast orders. My home fries were almost completely raw and the omelet was covered in grease/oil. My wife ordered hash brows which were also way too greasy.

Cafe Cravings has become our go to place for breakfast. The food is great, the portions are large and the staff is always friendly. My husband and I usually share the waffles, which are paper thin and melt in your mouth, and the hashbrowns. Plus, he orders sausage on the side. We've also gotten the regular french toast, as well... More

We came here at the end of summer. There was a group of ladies visiting. We ordered from the menu and the food was delicious!

Nice Cafe in the downtown (shopping) area of White Bear Lake. With today's competition in restaurants you have to be at least good at what you do. The menu had a nice variety and the proportions were large. The service was good too. However nothing was exceptional or unexpectedly good. And, I felt the prices were a little high.

I love stopping here for weekend brunch or dinner. Most recently when I dined here I had quiche. They usually have a vegetarian and non-vegetarian option. I really enjoyed it. The quiche is GF because the "crust" is made from shredded potatoes. They also offer a variety of GF dessert bars made by Bittersweet Bakery. The omelettes are also a... More
