I love soup so when I saw they were serving Coconut Chicken soup I had to have it. I paired it with their large salad and what a meal it was. Mark our server was tops in explains entrees in detail. We will be back!

The Cannelloni was awesome and Popcorn Gnocchi was fantastic! The Coconut Chicken Soup was delicious too. Mark, our server ~ described the items on the menu and was very knowledgeable. Public Restrooms are nearby. I would definitely return!

We arrived and were immediately seated. Our server was great and much fun. We had a delicious smoked butternut squash soup and we split a pizza. Lake Ave. Café always has a good vibe and interesting cuisine, it is a great spot for foodies.

We like to visit this place because it is very creative with food and flavors, and supports local. We enjoyed our wine, rabbit, & beet salad.

We had a delicious meal. I had pasta Primavera and a half garden salad (the watermelon basil vinaigrette was delicious!) while my husband opted for the onion soup and a burger. The food was, as I said, delicious! The presentation of the main dish was...More
