We absolutely love Simple-both the restaurant and bakery! The almond croissants and daily danishes are our go-to choices, but we have never been steered wrong! The restaurant is always busy, but it is worth any wait they have. The food is unique and delicious-much better than any other options in the downtown area. If you do have to wait, head... More

Sunday brunch, crazy busy, 30 minute wait to be seated, 45 minute wait for a salad and tofu scramble. Menu is interesting and varied, prices are good, kitchen is clearly over capacity and so is management - by 1:30 the bathroom trash was overflowing with TP strewn all ovee the floor. If you go on a weekend go early or... More

We always stop at Simple for breakfast when in Lake Geneva. The granola is amazing. We have yet to have a meal that was poor. The service is fast and friendly.

Always a must visit for Breakfast or Lunch-Have been there many times for breakfast, and while there is a wait on weekends, I have not been disappointed with their creative array of dishes. I have heard similar positive reviews from the lunch menu from other friends

They seem to never make a bad meal at this place. Great for eating lite and vegetarians. Noisy so try to get seated outside if you want to chat.

This is further down off the strip but completely worth the walk to the end. We eat here every time we visit. Never disappointed. The food is fantastic. They have their own modern, unique spin. Anything on the menu is amazing.

Fun and bright, the restaurant is very welcoming. The staff is friendly and at your service… despite how incredibly busy they get on a Sunday morning. They offer a good sized menu with unique dishes, leaving you wishing you could try a little bit of everything! They use fresh, high quality ingredients which you can surely identify and appreciate in... More

I had a spa afternoon at a local salon and they recommended this place for lunch. It did not dissapoint. I had a cheeseburger with potatoes. It was obviously fresh and also very tasty. I plan on going back for breakfast tomorrow before I hit the road to head home. Next door is a Simple bakery where I purchased a... More

Thought from other reviews this would be amazing. Not so much, just average. Nothing bad, just nothing special. A bit pricey for breakfast, 2 omelets and coffee, $35 with tip.
