It was girls' day out and we stopped in for a quick beer sampling before going upstairs to the Maumee Brewing Co. Jenny K. was welcoming and great! We'll be back for sure!

I have been here several times and love their cranberry mozzarella quiche and the Parisian salad. You can get it as a combo and it's still filling! There were 6 of us this visit, and I made reservations at 11:30 am. It's better too I think when you have a bigger group and to arrive early for lunch. Tina S... More

I had the chicken gyro that was on monthly special, and a couple of my colleagues had some quiche, salad, and sandwich combos. All the food was amazing. Our server Kat was very helpful and attentive. The outside patio makes The Cafe a great place to eat in Toledo.

Food was unique and decent flavors. We sat at the bar so it was interesting as the staff had loud personal conversations. Probably would wait to go to the upstairs brewery before returning here. Would maybe try again

Jenny was fantastic, she was energetic and helpful for my first time dining experience. She's a little dynamo and makes you feel so welcome, she makes you want to come back as soon as possible.

I have been coming here for lunch for years. The food is wonderful. There must be a clever chef who comes up with new and innovative recipes. I had the autumn salad with pieces of butternut squash and an excellent dressing. The atmosphere is calm and pleasant. Our waitress Tina was the best yet. She was helpful, courteous and anticipated... More

Grabbed a business lunch recently with a friend and both had an excellent meal. Service was great and nice atmosphere with folks casual dining or business lunches taking place. Convenient to get to downtown and in and out service. Had the chicken sandwich with edamame which was a pleasant surprise - great flavor.

The atmosphere of this restaurant is awesome. We enjoyed the history and culture. The service was above average. The food was good. The beer selection was great. By the way the beer was good as well. The prices were responsible.

Thank Jonesjp
