The Casual Chef Cafe is on the corner of Red Arrow Hwy and Town Line Road at the blinking light in Union Pier. The atmosphere is most pleasant with dining room paneled with light wood. Most relaxing. They have a great little menu with some...More

The Casual Chef is always one of my favorites for wonderful sandwiches! This week I had a grilled cheese on basil/tomato bread--very yummy! They also have baked goods to take out and a large selection of ice cream and gelato for a cone.

I'm surprised this place is still in business. We live nearby and tried this place for the first time when they just opened. Although their food is prepared with fresh ingredients, the wait is insanely long, and the way they treat their customers is TERRIBLE!!!!...More

Very reasonably priced, good coffee, friendly wait staff. This place has that small town charm that's only a few hours away from Chicago, close to all the wineries and a walk from the lake. Well worth stopping in for breakfast or to try one of...More
