I've been there several times for their short ribs. Would not go back. My husband had seared tuna. Was quite happy with it.

This little gem offers delicious food in a charming indoor dining area or outdoors in a garden area. We were able to eat, talk and enjoy our food and surroundings in a quiet atmosphere, somewhat unusual in this day and age. Great service, very good prices.

Stopped in for breakfast. Good variety on the menu. Had the chef's special and it was good... eggs, potatoes, fruit, scones and a large cup of coffee. Very good value and friendly service.

Right in the Heart of Ephraim and a close walk from several places of lodging. Surrounded by many shops and overlooking the Bay.

This was a restaurant we didn't remember seeing on our previous visits to Door County so it must have been new, or somehow we never noticed it. This time we wanted to have breakfast in a different place everyday so decided to try it out. We sat inside as outside was full and also we saw a few bees worrying... More

We ate lunch there. We had the flatbread and the Gorgonzola beef sandwich. Both were hearty and so very good tasting.
