Crane's is a fantastic place to go for lunch or an afternoon snack if you're in Downtown Holland. Fantastic apple cider, delicious donuts, sandwiches, and pies. The City Cristo sandwich and chai-der (a mix of chai tea and apple cider) are local favorites. Cozy atmosphere, friendly workers, wonderful wood. Everything is Michigan grown. All around a great place to eat... More

You can enjoy the smells of a baking pie and eat it too! If you prefer they have pies ready to go whole or by the slice! And pick... More

Cranes is a great place to stop by for a sandwich (hot or cold), soup, terrific homemade pies, cider, tea or coffee. It is homey. Can be crowed sometimes since it is small. You can also buy pies to take home and bake.

Girlfriends weekend ended with a bit to eat at Crane's. What awesome service and even better food. A deli in the heart of Holland with salads, sandwiches and lovely pies. A great way to end a spectacular weekend.
