This restaurant is a fabulously intimate venue. You must have reservations. Chef Melinda Roeder is a master at Asian fusion and her presentation is a true art form. The menu is different every time and she takes into consideration her guests' food dietary restrictions and...More

Cafe Beautiful is simply one of the finest restaurants my husband and I have ever visited. We are "foodies," and we have eaten in the top restaurants in Kansas City, Lawrence, and other major cities around the country, including New York City. We have also...More

Café Beautiful sounded like an ideal experience, so three weeks before we were to be driving from Pennsylvania through that part of the country I called the restaurant, leaving several messages. Some days later the chef returned the calls, and we explained about our situation...More

No better dining experience in Lawrence than this! Reservations are required. Only 6-8 diners a night, served 10 courses of the most exquisite food prepared by a chef who knows food! Don't miss this experience.

Cafe Beautiful is the most unique dining experience you can have in Lawrence and the surrounding area. I've been fortunate enough to eat her twice and both times have been fantastic. Each course is like a work of art and the flavors are amazing!

Exquisite Asian-style seven-course tasting menu. Very small - you will likely be the only patrons. Chef Melinda serves each course personally which makes the entire experience feel like you are a guest at the home of a very talented friend. She will also accommodate any...More
