Fairly limited menu choices for breakfast and lunch. Service is pretty slow, even if they are not busy. Prices are a bit steep, but the patio seating has a great view down toward the pool and lake.

The front desk said," Its like Panera Bread".. Much better and not as much $$. Small coffee and sandwich shop that makes you feel at home. Feel free to have it your way.

The Turman Cafe is a very small b'fast and snack facility. I have eaten a small breakfast there on numerous occasions and stopped for a coffee and snack in the afternoons. Inside seating is limited and you place your order at the register. However, when the weather is nice there is ample outdoor seating overlooking Table Rock Lake. Good food... More

I enjoyed the veggie wrap and roasted cauliflower soup with garlic and quinoa...I went back two more times and ordered the exact same meal! My children enjoyed grilled cheeses and fruit and all were satisfied. The prices are comparable to Panera, which I find on the high side, but for a meal at a resort I can't complain (and I... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our breakfast here before our kayaking escapade. Lovely grounds, nice little menu and plenty of beverage choices make this a pleasant place to have a slow morning before starting the day.

This is a nice little cafe on Big Cedar Lodge's property. I always come here for my coffee drinks when we stay there. They also have an offering of a few breakfast and lunch items. I don't typically eat here but enjoy their drinks. The staff remembers me when I come in which I think is pretty amazing considering all... More

This is a nice place to stop for a quick breakfast or lunch while at Big Cedar. They have hot dishes for both and a nice selection of pastries. It would also be great carryout to eat back in your room/cabin. There is indoor or outdoor seating and the decor is interesting with photos on the wall in keeping with... More
