One More Thumbs Up!!

Interesting sandwiches, salads and soup carefully prepared and reasonably priced. Everything from pastrami to veggie options--the Georgia Reuben was very good!

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here with my parents. Each of us ordered a sandwich, with both wives ordering the soup and sandwich combo. Everything was good. I bet they have nice breakfasts too. The view over the river was also enjoyable. Fair prices.

Delicious sandwiches abound! You simply can't go wrong. Fresh baked bread, fresh ingredients, great coffee and soups! My personal favorite - Fannys Favorite on sourdough, turkey with cream cheese, cranberries and cucumber.

If you are nearby around lunchtime, this is the place to stop. Amazing soup, salad and sandwich menu. The views are plesant and an antique shop and an art studio are fun to visit when you are here.

We drove over 100 miles to have lunch here and we weren't disappointed. Great food, amazing menu and a very nice atmosphere with excellent service. Their breads are outstanding. One of the best meals we've had on the UP.

The best sandwich in the U.S. Beautiful setting by water yet not far from highway 2. Friendly owners and staff. Well worth the trip.

It's right off the U.S. 2 highway near the mouth of the Manistique river flowing into Lake Michigan. Never had breakfast here, but I hear it's very good. Lunch I've had many times with friends and we have always liked it. Very good sandwiches and salads as well as fresh iced tea. They also have seating on the porch (dog... More

It was tough to decide what to eat! There were a lot of sandwiches available that sounded really good to me. I had a club sandwich and my husband had a chicken quesadilla. Both were delicious. The setting right on the river was beautiful. Great experience.

Food is phenomenal and the people working there are just as great! We have been going there for 11 years on our trips to or through manistique, you will find nowhere better to eat in town.
