Second time here after several years and still awesome. I selected the Thai quinoa salad and it was amazing. Dined with three other folks and all meals were enjoyed. Make this a stop on your Door County visit.

We stopped here for a good lunch. We had sidetracked to Door county and were hungry by 1 pm. There still was a line. Many families and locals filled the place. The food and service were good. Best option in town. 😀

This was our second or third time at this clean, bright, upbeat cafe on Sturgeon Bay's south side. After a friend told us about this cafe/wine bar some years back, we make the Bluefront a priority during Door County trips. Today, as have other meals,...More
