Had lunch here during the National More Mushroom Festival. Great morel beer cheese soup. Rigatoni with morels, peas, cheese and carmelized onion was very tasty. Side dish of sauteed morels a terrific add on. You can only get these dishes during the festival. Very good!

Visited Cafe Sante with another couple on a Friday evening, and was quite pleased with the experience. Everyone was pleased with their generous entrees and the wines they selected. There was a guitar player providing live entertainment which is always a nice touch as well....More
