About us.

The Dish Cafe is Traverse City’s downtown destination for fast, fresh, casual food and drink. Offering a wide range of menu items—from freshly made salads, sandwiches and quesadillas, to homemade soups, smoothies and baked goods—we have something for everyone. With a family-friendly atmosphere and caring customer service, we're certain you'll be coming back for more!

*NEW in Spring/Summer 2017! — We're proud to offer extended dinner hours and an alcoholic beverage selection of beer, wine and cocktail favorites. Pair one with a bar snack or meal and you've got yourself a night out!

Since 2007, The Dish Cafe has been owned and operated by husband and wife team, Patty Hickman and Randy Waclawski.
