    The crab risotto was nice. The beet salad was soooo vinegary it was difficult to eat. The quinoa was like poppy seeds. Let’s go back to the former beet salad recipe.

    The atmosphere was great at Cafe Navarre. Service was very good and they gave a rose to all the mom's on Mother's Day which was a nice touch. My only complaint was that the brunch was not so good. My wife had a lobster roll and it looked like coleslaw on a hot dog bun. I had french toast and it was pretty good but it was smothered in what I am thinking was a cinnamon goo which was not needed. I wish the menu was a little simpler was well as kid friendly too. Maybe having an actual kid's option on menu would be appreciated.

    We have always loved Cafe Navarre. However, our server could have been a little more attentive, as he brought the wrong cocktail for my wife, and never brought a bread basket, which was requested twice. It was busy, so there is some level of understanding on our part. Outside of the that out food was excellent.

    We were in town for a wedding and wanted to go to brunch for Mother’s Day. A friend from South Bend recommended Cafe Navarre, and we couldn’t have had a better experience.

    Wonderful food. The service was outstanding. Our waitress even put in a special request for drinks not on the menu. Probably the best French Onion soup in the area. We had the roast chicken & crab risotto. Both excellent Definitely recommend Cafe Navarre & will come again
