“This is a MUST STOP in Park Rapids, especially if you are vegan or vegetarian. I order the thai PB burger with the black bean and rice patty (no bun), and quite frankly it might be the best veggie burger I’ve ever had. Can’t wait until my next visit to Park Rapids to enjoy this gem of a restaurant!” – MJ H.

“Favorite place to dine! The Good Life Cafe has excellent and unique menu choices. There is something for everyone in a fun atmosphere! The kids love their homemade gouda mac and cheese and I can’t decide on a single favorite. We often choose The Good Life when dining out.” – Mandy R.

“From the front door to the back garden was a beautiful trip and the food was excellent! My daughter and I enjoyed our meal in the covered garden out back. It was raining lightly and the sound of the rain on the roof was enchanting and the atmosphere was delightful. We had a wonderful server and even better food!” – Jenni S.

“We stopped here after camping at Itasca State Park. Our kids absolutely loved the food. (So did their parents). The food is high quality, beautiful, and adventurous. You can tell a lot of thought and love is placed in this menu. This was our second time here. We will be back!” – Erin H.

“All I’m going to say is- walleye tacos!!! Amazing. Everything here is so fresh and homemade. But I dream about those walleye tacos!!!!!” – Jen T.

“The reuben. Oh my gosh, it’s just SO good.” – Jana F.

“Hells bells if this isn’t the best restaurant north of the Twin Cities in all of Minnesota. It’s, simply put, the best dining experience to be found in Northern Minnesota. The food is quite possibly the best I have ever had. The wife insists on driving an hour once a month just to eat here. Do yourself a favor and come hungry – get an appetizer (pretzel rolls with melted gouda), get anything on the menu for you main course (everything is stellar) and get yourself a cheesecake dessert. It’s rare that a dining experience can change your perspective on life. Seriously, you owe to yourself, your children, and America itself to eat here at least once. I’ll be damned if it’s not better than proper air conditioning in a car on a hot July day.” – Jon C.

“By far the best Burgers I’ve ever had! The Artichoke Dip is phenomenal as well!!!” – Dariane S.
