Missed getting the scone on the day we stopped by. The owner said they would hold a couple for us the next day on our way out. This was so NICE! My husband and I loved this place even before that!

My husband and I decided to try this for lunch. The sandwhiches were so good that we came back a second day. The bread and fixings were all homemade. Food is quite expensive on Mackinac so it was nice to have a place where we could get a light lunch without a huge bill. It's one of the few restaurants... More

Great location behind the Bay View B&B overlooking the harbor. Friendly staff, good coffee and a yummy bread pudding with fresh fruit, and a great view.

Charming place for breakfast. My sister and I both had the yogurt bowl. We found it to be delicious and very filling. Such a cute restaurant! The staff was very friendly, too!

My friend and I work on the island and came here for lunch after hearing great reviews about it. This charming little coffee shop is located directly on the water, right next to the island marina. There are a few tables that face the water, so we snagged one. There's nowhere else on the island that you can eat so... More

This little coffee/sandwich shop is a nice alternative to the hustle and bustle on Main St. The location is right on the harbor. We enjoyed a few sandwiches, a salad, a smoothie and a latte. Our entire party was very happy! We've been coming to Mackinac for years and will add this cafe to our list of regular places to... More

My brother and his wife recommended this wonderful little restaurant for lunch the day before we were all leaving the island. He had and his wife had their morning coffee there each morning while staying across the way at a B&B. My family and I were staying at the Chippewa close by so it wasn't a far walk to the... More
