a leisurely lunch “At Sara’s Table ~ Chester Creek Cafe”….

An absolutely AMAZING restaurant… fabulous, organic, beautiful food. Stellar service, a lovely wine and cocktail list, and a warm welcoming atmosphere. I can honestly say it was some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. Please check this place out the next time you’re passing through Duluth. You’ll be so glad you did.
