I've been here twice. Once I got a huge mound of nachos that was more like a gourmet pile of delicious-ness, and the second time I got a black bean burger. Let me tell you, it was the best I've had! Really great food, service, and atmosphere.

Friendly staff and great service! I had the meatloaf sandwhich. Was full of flavor and had a nice spicy kick to it. Will definitely be coming back. Everything was fresh and delicious.

Whenever I want to reward myself, I go to the Bluefront Cafe. The menu reflects the culinary talents of this dynamic husband and wife team.

We had to try this while in the area because the reviews were so fantastic. Great place but quite busy so get there early. We had a tasty lunch and there are some delicious choices. Very clean and a very nice wait staff. Check it out!

Bluefront Cafe has been a lunch destination for me and my co-workers when in Sturgeon Bay on previous visits and this time, my husband and I tried it for dinner. We were not disappointed. I had their salmon and squash soup, both well prepared and delicious, as was my husband's selection of ribs. The menu is innovative with plenty to... More

Stopped in for dinner and had the burritos. Both the regular and vegetarian were delish. Cherrie pie was really good too.

Wish Trip Advisor had a category between "average" and "very good", as we would've given this a "good". Lots of locals, and daily specials.
