Sorry to say The Rainbow has closed. Shawna's has opened up in this site, not nearly as upscale...kind of dairy farmer plain in fact, but friendly. They have a ways to go about learning the restaurant business and I hope they succeed . The start...More

The food is creative, fresh, organic, and wonderful! I had an excellent chicken with pesto dish and my hubby had the best Alfredo ever. While the decor isn't anything special, we will be back to try other dishes.

Had lunch with hubby here and found the food to be fresh and delicious. The specials sounded great but they ran out of the ones we wanted. Wonderful service and a terrific small town in Minnesota.

This is a hidden gem. Tucked away on main street in Pine Island, they serve up great meals sourced locally and cooked up fresh. Great soups and sandwiches. Homemade potato chips. Definitely stop here if you are in the area for lunch!

Recently returned to the Rainbow Cafe for dinner. It continues to provide quality food, great flavors, excellent service and excellent desserts. Small, quaint and quiet. Excellent!

I loved my walleye but my husband found his grass fed T bone tough. Expensive meat should not be tough in my opinion. The waitress was not concerned that we remarked on this, and we spent $100.00 for 2 of us. That does not reflect...More
