Rita and Steve, co-owners of The Watershed Cafe brought a lifetime of love of good, farm-to-table food together to launch the business in July, 2014. It takes more than great food to make a dining experience. It takes an awesome location and eating with fun, interesting people. Watershed Café is within the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and tucked alongside Geiger and Cascade Falls. During the logging era (1839-1914), Osceola started with a sawmill that was built where lumberjacks floated millions of logs all along the St. Croix Watershed. Later steam boat excursions found Osceola on the River St. Croix a pleasant stop for thousands of visitors looking for a trip to the countryside. The Watershed Café building is located in the heart of those historical origins where the office once stood for the original sawmill-called the Osceola Milll. It now reflects the hip sensibilities of the surrounding community while also paying tribute to the St. Croix Watershed.
