To  all  our  wonderful and  loyal  customers. Some  disappointing news. We  have  decided  to  discontinue Saturday-night  dining with immediate effect.

Like all good things, it started out with a great flurry and then has dwindled down to just a few people, so between Peter’s bad hip and other pressing commitments we have decided to end Sat.-night dinning.  Another factor is the onset of winter and our off-the-beaten-track location in bad weather.


We, of course, will always be open in the eveningson any day of the week for that matter for private parties, bridal showers, birthday celebrations, family reunions, company dinners . . . whatever the occasion happens to be.  Simply phone to make your arrangements.  

Special events are fun to put together and The Wild Hare is a great setting for group get-togethers and celebrations.


Remember we are still here in the café every week, Wednesday through Sunday from 11 to 2:30 pm and will look forward to seeing you as always!   


Fondest regards from the two of us!

Midwest Living Review
by Karen Sorensen

"Don't be surprised by the Alice-in-Wonderland nature of the Wild Hare Cafe's decor, which incongruously
 proves to be a nice complement to its simple but eclectic menu".
