We never miss a visit when we are in the Duluth area. Wonderful, seasonal and innovative cuisine. Definitely someplace to try something new and maybe a little out of your comfort zone. We've never been disappointed and loved everything we've ordered.

We read all the accolades and couldn't wait to try the New Scenic Cafe. Unfortunately, our experience fell far short of expectations. From a food perspective, what we got was slightly above average restaurant fare. It wasn't bad but it wasn't anything close to spectacular....More
