Not sure exaggerating. The pork was out of this world. We had the warm mushroom salad, oysters, goat cheese salad. Squid pasta with shrimp, mushroom ravioli and duck. All entrees were very good with the exception of the duck which was so so. Fig pudding...More

Cafe Panache is a real gem hidden in a small strip mall in downtown Ramsey. The decor is elegant, which of course adds to the dining experience. (A minor observation: the tables had chairs that happen to be the most comfortable ones I ever had.)...More

If it's not posted on their Website you would have to visit the restaurant and look at it . Stop by during the week or call and ask what their specials are.
