It is right on the Highway so it doesn't have much of a view like Bluefin grille does. You also order at a counter caferia style so not much for service either. The menu is really limited too. Our food took too long to come out. My breakfast pizza was pretty good but my gf's breakfast plate seemed really small.... More

Part of the BlueFin Bay Resort, this beautifully decorated and built, it finishes your trip "up north" (as we say it in Minnesota). The bakery features a wide variety of pastry items and quality beverages. They also serve pizzas and food, although we have never tried them here. Outside seating and a great place for families and couples to congregate.... More

My husband and I came in really hungry this afternoon so we ordered a 14" pizza - the Margherita Fresca with chicken and it was delicious! Crisp crust, but not too thin. The flavors were perfect together. And we have some left over to heat up tonight! The wait staff is friendly and helpful. We are very impressed and excited... More

Visited the Cafe several times during out stay at Bluefin Bay. Beautiful atmosphere--light and airy with lake views, fantastic food and beverage selections. The menu and pastry selections are top notch. We enjoyed several hot beverages to warm up, delicious homemade soup and numerous pastries!

Coho had great coffee, unique teas, a clean/light/airy atmosphere, SUPERB mushroom wild rice soup, and fantastic bread. It's the perfect breakfast and lunch spot when you're vacationing on the North Shore. We sat there all afternoon, getting some needed work done on our laptops, and it was delightful.

We all went over to Coho on my friends birthday for breakfast. 3.31.2017 it was. Our orders consisted of: 4 breakfast sandwiches (egg, ham, cheese on a bun), 1 bagel with cream cheese, 2 hikers breakfasts (eggs, toast, meats, etc) and a pancake breakfast with a fruit plate. 3 fountain drinks and the rest were waters. Eighty dollars this ran... More

We visited the cafe twice within the week. We stopped for coffee following a walk along the GitchGummi Bike Trail that follows the lakeshore. Though it was just before closing time, the manager was very accommodating, even preparing fresh coffee while we relaxed at a table. We therefore stopped for lunch two days later. The coffee--three choices, was as flavorable... More

Stopped by briefly after a hike up the Superior Trail at Temperance River State Park. Got there just before closing and we were still able to get a coffee and pastry. Coffee was good and pastries (I had a lemon tart and my wife had a flourless chocolate cake) were excellent. Plant to stop by there in Tofte again when... More

We had the hiker's breakfast. Very good. Service was friendly, food came out quickly and was nice and hot. Bakery goods looked amazing, but we didn't try any. We'd definitely go back!
