If my travels take me anywhere near Lake Geneva during the breakfast hours, I will always eat here. There's usually a bit of a wait on the weekends, but it is worth it. The food is unique and fresh and absolutely delicious every time. The staff is top notch (which can be difficult to find in the Midwest). If you're... More

Seriously, I could eat here all the time! I love their mission and how delicious the food is! Also, make sure you stop at their bakery next door!

If you love food, you will love Simple. There is ALWAYS a long wait, so come early and put your name on the list and check out the bakery next door or the hippie shop across the street. We have never had anything at Simple that was not simply marvelous. From the coffee (they have Truvia!) to the specialty hash... More

Enjoyed breakfast with BF before heading to the Abbey. We enjoyed a fritata and a turkey and veggie hash. Be prepared to wait for a table because this is a popular place. Service is friendly and responsive.

The food was simply extraordinary. We had a short weekend in Lake Geneva, and because our first experience was so good, we had to go back a second time. Between the two of us, we had four different meals, and every single one of them was delicious. I told my wife that I was blown away not just by the... More

Name does not tell the story! From the moment you walk in you know you are in for a treat. Very eye catching colors, unbelievable menu and excellent service! What more could you ask for? Took a sneak peak of menu online and found a half dozen items that I'd like to try. Breakfast and lunch only served, but you... More

I ate here for lunch with a friend and we loved the place. The staff is super friendly and the food is delicious. Freshly made food from local farms produce. After lunch we bought a coffee and a pastry at the next-door bakery, which has the same owner. All their breads are delicious, I especially recommend their focaccia and olive... More

Been to Simple Cafe a few times now. The food is excellent! Very fresh, sourced locally and many homemade items including the tomato soup. It's always crowded and definitely worth the wait!

Enjoyed breakfast at the Simple because it was highly recommended. A very cool place to eat right off the main drag in Lake Geneva. We did not have to wait and were seated immediately. The staff was fast and very service oriented. Bit of advice, get there early because by the time we were done around 10:30am, the place was... More
