Great sandwiches, breakfast and coffee. Every time we pass Sturgeon Bay we visit this lovely coffee shop. Its boardgame selection is very decent – they always seem to have one just right for me. I bought another great one today. Highly more

Visited with wife and 2 yr old this weekend and stopped in for a light bite to each as the idea of a game cafe sounded appealing. The place was not busy at all (one other table of customers) Ordered a wrap and chicken fingers which proceeded to take 30 mins to arrive. Then, upon arrival, cut into the chicken tenders to find the center was ice cold to touch. The server did offer to make a new order, which meant another wait, and if you have a 2 yr old who is past their dinner, you know that’s not in the cards. At the very least we should have been offered a refund. Really unfortunate end cap to what was an enjoyable trip to Sturgeon Bay. I get that the food is not the focal point of this establishment’s identity but if that’s the case, limit your menu to the top 5 items you can deliver with exceptional quality and consistency, without overly long wait more

We had a great time visiting for a birthday of a huge Pokemon fan! The staff was so welcoming and helpful, and our meal was excellent. Their menu is extensive, and everything was fresh and delicious. The board game selection is awesome with a huge selection to play while you wait for your meal or to buy and take home. We will definitely be frequenting here often!read more

Unfortunately Underwhelming. Saw the TV commercials for this place, went to Sturgeon Bay for a visit. Get a bite to eat, play some games seems like a good concept.. two customers in front of us , one with a coffee order and one a sandwich order. unfortunately the kitchen service was lousy, long time , greater than 20 minutes to get our sandwiches , you figure a couple of sandwiches would be quick. I know it’s not a fast food place, but.. zzzz . Plenty of employees behind the counter. Sandwiches were ordinary, nothing more

Nice, friendly place to stop for a cup of coffee. Wide selection of drink items: coffees, teas, etc. Staff was warm and welcoming. There are plenty of board games to use while enjoying your meal. Will note that I just stopped for coffee but did not eat there, but the menu was varied, and food loomed more
