Always Spot On!

Great selection of sandwiches that never disappoint! I tried the Tuna Melt for the first time & it was delicious. Not your momma's tuna sandwich. My usual is Fanny's Favorite.

We had lunch including sandwiches, soup, a kids meal, and desserts! Great food for the price and the kids loved watching the hummingbird 2 feet outside the window while we ate. Only open through lunch, so go then!

So many choices of sandwiches. It is in the Traders Point area with some shops. Neat area. Was a nice day to take our food down by the lake.

The staff are always friendly and the food is great. The Reuben is loaded with meat and the bacon burger is huge.

Traveling thru the UP of Michigan we found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. We shared the Italian and the chicken salad sandwich. Both were good and had a generous portion of meat. For dessert we had the salted caramel cake. The cake wonderful. Overall it was a great experience. The price was fair and the service was gooy

We popped in here after reading good reviews. Such a cute place and GREAT food. The menu is huge! Every sandwich and salad you could imagine. We had the upper crust Reuben and the Italian. Both were phenomenal! I can't even put into words how good it was. My husband and I keep talking about it. Such a hidden gem... More

Excellent Soup and Sandwiches. We stopped in based on the great reviews and were not disappointed. The food was great. There are many unique varieties of sandwiches to choose from and everything was fresh. It is located right on the water with wonderful views. I highly recommend.

This is a decent little place with a nice view of the river. It is only open at lunch time. Calling it a "Cafe Bakery & Deli" did make us expect a little more than they have. For example, the only pies have to be ordered in advance and are only sold by the whole pie. I liked the view... More

Hello - I am so sorry that you were underwhelmed by our deli. We had originally started out as a full bakery & deli, but the market was not supportive, so we ultimately ended up becoming a lunch place only. We also cater extensively and serve dinners many nights each week throughout summer. Unfortunately, some of our original information it... More
