We were on the north shore & two of those nights we went to New Scenic Cafe. The escargot is out if this world! We had vegetarian s in our group & 2 meat eaters and we all loved our food. Tonight my husband had lamb shank and he thought it wAs fabulous. Definitely finer dining.

We have been to New Scenic Cafe multiple times over the years for lunch and dinner with co-workers, friends, and just us. Consistently, the food and service has always been good.

Having friends who had a catered affair from here for their wedding a few years ago, I had to try it for myself. I had the salmon burger with a squid ink brioche bun.

A coworker recommended this cafe for a meal, and it was phenomenal! Drove over from Duluth, and the drive was beautiful: views of the lake and the lake homes surrounded by snow and pine trees. The cafe itself is very charming inside: warm, homey, well-decorated, with nice staff. Interesting selection of food, and a delicious beer cheese soup. Went during... More
