We always love the cafe. The choices of what to eat are terrific. Just enough different to be interesting...just enough "home cooking" to soothe the soul. They did a terrific job social distancing and preparing to keep us safe. The music is a real upper...and I've just always loved the place.
It was very nice. We felt comfortable and safe with our dine in. The food was great as usual.
The Cafe NEVER disappoints. Impeccable meal as always. Thanks!
Everything was great. It was so nice to sit down , have the food served to us and and catch up with a dear friend for the holidays. It was something I have truly missed doing these past 9 months. I appreciate your conservative approach, the limited seating, and being able to get a reservation. The food was great as always too!
We are vegan and appreciate the choices. We had tje veggie burger and rice bowl, both were very good.
It is always a delight.
I love the music but it could be a little quieter especially over by the windows on the north side. But I ALWAYS have the best experience with you guys! It’s the only place I eat because of your sensational quality!
Love the afe
Favorite place to go for special occasions
Autumn Cobb salad was phenomenal. Server was courteous and very helpful. The Cafe never disappoints. Thanks
The lighting above the table was pretty low. Almost to my husbands eye level. Just needs to be raised a bit for taller people.
As always the food and service were amazing! Such a great experience! LOVE THE CAFE!!
The food was excellent & our server very friendly & efficient The Cafe’ is treat to dine at!!
We love The Cafe! Great food and service! We felt very safe with their health precautions.
It was perfect!!
Absolutely Wonderful. My Wife and love the Cafe! Great food, great atmosphere, and outstanding people working there. Always out first choice!
Service was excellent including the table we were given, friendliest of waitresses with recommendations and quick check backs. My scallop dish was so tasty, so too the wine blend and my guest appreciated having three choices of sparklings. Her comment on the Thai rib dish was that everything was delicious but she would have preferred fewer ribs and more slaw. Nothing could have topped out our wonderful experience more than the pumpkin cheesecake that we shared.
Literally the BEST restaurant with amazing food and service. We are so glad to have such an amazing choice in Ames!
Excellent venue. Clean, good food.
The safety measures were outstanding. The food , as always was delicious. I am so thankful you are open, while keeping your staff safe and your patrons.
The Cafe sets the standard for all other middle class restaurants. Superb in all areas.
In the past we have eaten there many times. Their precautions we thought were extremely good and we felt very safe eating there.
Very nice evening.
Our waitress was very good! Soup was excellent (squash/apple bisque). Perfect experience!!!!!
We had a great dinner and server.
Our dinners were delicious, as usual. Service was great. We did not feel hurried to complete our meals. We were able to sit and relax a few minutes before leaving.
Love the food and the atmosphere of this place!
Best restaurant in central Iowa
Amazing in every way!
The food was absolutely phenomenal!
My first time there...my autumn club salad was fantastic!
Excellent lunch experience. Nice to get out of the house and feel safe and enjoy the new pizza at The Cafe.
Our first restaurant visit in Ames since the pandemic started. Food was incredible. Seating distances made us feel safe. All staff wore masks and provided excellent service.
Food was great!
We love the Cafe! We eat there everytime we are in town. Their rotating menu, and fresh food is always the best. Keep up the good work!
Great restaurant !! Manager greeted us, she makes you feel welcome !! Friends from Kansas were impressed !!
Our server Eleanor was lovely, did a great job and the desserts were spectacular as they always are!
So nice to go to our favorite restaurant. Thanks for reopening.
All of our food was delicious. Our waitress did an excellent job. We loved the atmosphere and music. The only complaint is that the prices are expensive. I understand having to raise them with not having 100 percent business back .
Delicious food and excellent service. Staff appears to be very careful about following safety protocols.
I will definitely be back! Delicious food prepared in a very interesting way.
We really enjoy The Cafe. The food was so well-prepared and flavorful. Our server was very attentive, yet we appreciated her respect for our personal space. The ambiance made for a wonderful evening. It was as if things were normal again. Thank you for opening.
