Wow! Reading some of the reviews, I was concerned about having lunch here, but we had a wonderful meal, service, and enjoyed the remodeled factory atmosphere. We each had a cup of a delicious wild rice soup and shared one of the many paninis. Both...More

Stopped by on our way to Bayfield. Neat place built in an old printing factory. Right when we walked in, the hostess just looked at us until we said something. Sat outdoors in the nice warm sun. The tables are up on the old truck...More

I didn't have a meeting here. I would recommend Back When Cafe if you need a quiet space for a business meeting with great food.

While I am not Todd, I also enjoyed Thrive immensely. I had the vegetarian tacos. Best tacos I have eaten. Anywhere. Ever. My husband also enjoyed his steak and we want to go back soon.
