On the road for our 43rd. This is a very nice cafe with a varied menu of breakfast, sandwiches, etc.- definitely a nice stop going north or south in Michigan.

The Chorizo skillet and our pancakes are 2 of my personal favorites. Glad you enjoyed them. May I also suggest our famous Trout & eggs or our sweet & tart Oat Bran Cherry French toast. Yum! More

What a great surprise. Very "North-woodsy". Outdoor theme with a ton of wood, mounted fish, fish prints, etc. Three kinds of reubens alone. Burgers and several authentic BBQ dishes served with four or five at the table sauces. Kid-friendly kids menu, COLD beer and friendly staff. I ate there two nights in a row it was so good.

A great find! It's tucked away off the Main Street of 131. Stopped in last weekend, great menu, very , very good bloody mary's! Had breakfast, trout and eggs for me and Lindsey, Tam had the birds nest! Go see for yourself, the staff treated us like friends. Since our cottage and boat are both nearby we will visit often!...

Recommended by a local resident and it was delicious. The lunch menu was extensive with a wide variety. We had soup (French onion, vegetable beef barley) with Irish Reuben sandwich. The soup serving was ample and the sandwiches hot and flavorful. Service was quick and friendly. Bathroom was clean

We were visiting from out of state and stopped here for lunch at the recommendation of a local resident. Great home-style food and a friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed burgers, BBQ selections, the fish sandwich and the "Smoked Trout Pate and Cheese Plank" (yummm!). The portions were generous and resonably priced. We enjoyed this place so much that after our first... More

First time stopping, and I'll be back. The service was great, the specialty drinks were wonderful on a cold and blustery May evening. The food was presented nicely and tasted great.

Had a cottage there for 14 years. Trout Town was our "go to" place for breakfast and lunch. Always good, home cooked, yummy food. Wait staff was also always pleasant!
