We’ve visited Simple on every trip we’ve made to Lake Geneva and sometimes twice in a single day (YES, the food is actually that good!!). We are vegetarian and they have some excellent choices (an unbelievably delicious garden burger…..see takeout picture). I really like being...able to order online ahead of time too. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and they are super friendly. In my opinion: THE BEST restaurant in all of Lake Geneva.More

We discovered this great place for breakfast and lunch on a road trip. The Chicken Curry bowl and Korean BBQ Pork breakfast bowl were fantastic! You gotta like spicy! Great Citrus Ginger tea was a nice surprise for me since I love herbal teas. My...husband had it on ice while mine was hot. Super service, expect a short wait for this popular place. Outdoor seating is available, weather permitting.More

We had breakfast here on March 19th. The staff is friendly and efficient. The menu has a lot of options so make a decision was tough. There are plenty of options on the menu for vegetarians. Cheryl had the seasonal harvest frittata and Erik had...the chicken chorizo chili omelet and a side corned beef hash. The two main breakfast dishes were outstanding. They were plentiful, well presented and absolutely delicious. As for the corned beef hash; it was without a doubt the best corned beef hash I have ever had. Had I known about the hash I may have skipped the omelet and order a second hash. If you like corned beef hash this is the one to have and if you don't like corned beef hash (assuming you eat meat) you will if you try this. It is outstanding. The prices are on the higher end, but they are worth every penny. Cheryl and I give this our highest recommendation.More

Such a great find. Stopped for lunch and loved everything we ordered. Pulled blackened chicken sandwich was delicious, the tomato soup with a grill cheese sandwich was fresh and tasty, and the kids egg plate was a hit. The potatoes which come with each dish...were also very good. Wait staff were very friendly and tables were safely spaced out. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend.More

I have been to this bakery twice now and each time it's been wonderful. The first time, I stopped in with my kids and bought cookies and monkey bread. Both were great but I would highly recommend the Oatmeal Raisin cookies, probably the best I've...ever had! The second time, I bought my hubby here because we need a bag of coffee and thought we'd try theirs. There were so many types to choose from so we asked the girl behind the counter. She was great (wish I knew here name). She took her time with us and made sure we got what we described (a breakfast blend - type). After my hubby made the first pot he was TOTALLY HOOKED! Admittedly, he did think the coffee was expensive but he didn't care after he tried it. We will be back!More

Loved the place so much! They have stories on their website of all the local farmers they go through for ingredients. Everything was super tasteful and great atmosphere. Absolutely loved it and will be returning!

It is great to find a breakfast place that not only does the traditional breakfast to perfection, but also offers a number of very creative breakfast selections. We dined at Simple on consecutive days for breakfast and were completely satisfied both days. I had the...traditional Simple breakfast both days and each time they nailed it to perfection. My wife selected a creative item on day 1 that was so good she ordered it again on day 2. Simple also has outstanding coffee, and the server offered us to go cups on both days, which is a nice touch. The staff is friendly, and the restaurant takes COVID seriously. Tables are spaced nicely, all staff wear masks, they thoroughly disinfect tables and chairs after every guest, and require guests to wear masks. There is also the Simple bakery next door where we stocked up on sweets and bread.More

Our party of 4 enjoyed a relaxing delicious lunch on the patio. It was our second visit, and just like two years before, it was a great take of traditional items done in a simple fresh way. Also treat yourself to their bakery next door!

This is such a breath of fresh air! With so many not so healthy options around this was a wonderful suprise. The entire menu is innovative and intriguing, making a final decision is hard but I dont think you can go wrong with most choices....We settled on the Korean bbq breakfast bowl and the mushroom and swiss burger. The bowl was filled with great veggies and perfectly cooked pork shoulder topped with an egg. And the burger tasted great! Grass fed patty with mushrooms and roasted potatoes that were to die for. The price is reasonable with such great ingredients. Recomend for breakfast or lunch!More

There is a gate directly to the side patio and into the restaurant without stairs. A double stroller is always difficult in doorways.
