Dining

No matter what type of cuisine you crave, you’ll find something to satisfy at The Elms Hotel & Spa’s signature restaurants. From savory, rustic American Midwest comfort food at Three Owls or specialty cocktail drinks at The Tavern, to fresh-brewed coffee at Cafe Soterian—we have delicious dining options to keep you fortified.

Three Owls
Prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Three Owls offers rustic Midwest fare seasoned with herbs grown from our own raised-bed gardens. Boasting hearth-baked breads, tarts, spit-roasted meats, simply dressed pasta, and fresh fish flown in daily—we deliver dishes with the perfect balance of flavors. You’ll love our dining experience that's as unfussy as the restaurant's casually sophisticated ambiance.
