We enjoy breakfast at Summer Kitchen. It's convenient to HIgh Point Inn where we stay while in Door County every October we're there. Get there early on a Saturday morning; it can fill up fast.

From the street this looks like a craft shop, but once you get inside you are greeted by the most friendly people. It has a enclosed gazebo and sunroom attached to the main room for that nice outdoorsy feeling. The many windows allowed us to...More

Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate it. It is our goal to make sure all of our guests leave satisfy. Please give us another try, perhaps for breakfast or lunch.

Our breakfast was pretty good, service was a little slow. We were wishing we would have had their soup and home made bread buffet as it looked real good. They have a large menu to select from.
