Went to Everyday People Cafe on a Monday evening. No wait, although it was the week before Memorial Day weekend. We had the Pork hop and Beef Tenderloin. Both were great! Had the Drunken Shrimp as an appetizer...delicious. Service was terrific. Will definitely return on our next trip to Saugatuck.

The noisy space is covered in local art and the food is a solid bet for even us snobby Californians. Looking forward to a return visit

Everyday People Cafe was recommended to us. I was looking forward to the menu I read online. We were seated immediately at 7:30, at a nice window table. It was a little loud, but overall a great place. The menu was changed by the owner 2 days ago and not updated on the web. I was a little disappointed, but... More

We arrived about 7 pm and seated immediately. Drinks were robust in size, amount of gin and cost ($5)! White Fish special on fresh asparagus was very tasty as was my wife's good sized pork chop. It exceeded our friend's recommendation.

A creative menu accompanies professional and friendly staff. It's by far the best dining experience in the area. There is a reason for the wait... And it's well worth it.

Innovative menu and great atmosphere. We didn't expect to find this type of cuisine in the downtown Douglas area and were pleasantly suprised.
