Marc and Judy Paulson welcome you!
Some guests of the county might remember the first Mill Road Café which we operated in Sister Bay at the Walkway Shops from 1984 – 86. After 20 years of business in Ephraim at the Old Orchard Inn and Windflower Gifts, we’re once again serving food to friends and guests at our new Mill Road Café, located at the Green Gables Shops in Ephraim.
Many of the recipes we were famous for are now being served in our cozy and comfortable new space. Marc makes excellent home-made soups, gourmet salads, and terrific deli and specialty sandwiches. For breakfast you can enjoy Judy’s homemade sour cream coffee cake, muffins or Café granola, as well as New York bagels. Paulsons have always been famous for their quiche. It’s made with a hand-rolled all-butter crust, and filled with fresh ingredients and a rich egg custard. Guests can eat in the dining area which boasts a TV for sports fans and free wireless internet. Or they can sit outside on Green Gables’ beautiful garden patio.
The Mill Road Café is proud to feature Alterra coffee, roasted and blended in Milwaukee. The Café has a complete coffee bar, with espresso, cappuccino, and latte drinks, as well as icy-blended coffee frappes and fresh fruit smoothies.
Windflower Gallery and Gifts is located within the Café space. Our shop features Ephraim Faience Pottery, hand thrown and glazed in the Arts-and-Crafts tradition. We also display and sell the photography of local artist Daniel Anderson, including many of his unique Door County color prints. You can also find a piece of lovely jewelry, a greeting card for every occasion, Woods of Windsor toiletries, and much more.
Come join us for lunch or a latte. Stay for the conversation, browse through the shop, and stroll through Green Gables’ award-winning flower gardens. We’ll be delighted to see you!
