While visiting Mount Pleasant we found Max & Emily's in the old down-town area. We were looking for a nice place to eat breakfast that wasn't a chain. It was so good that we ate breakfast here three days in a row. My husband kept getting the Swiss Scrambler, and I had the Egg Tortilla twice. On the third day... More

I adore max and Emily's for lunches. I don't go there as often now because I no longer work in the area, but when I worked in the county building I had lunch there almost every DAY! My only sticking point is that they are trying to do TOO MUCH. The tastes, freshness, and service (slow-ish around lunch- try to... More

Even though parking can sometimes be a bear, it's worth every effort to enjoy the best sandwiches in Mt. Pleasant. Stop in early so you can get a good look at all the options and then enjoy it either inside during the cold days or outside on the warm ones. It's a great place for a quick lunch, business meeting,... More

For years, I've heard of Max and Emily's. I finally had the pleasure of dining there, this past weekend. Excellent location downtown Mt. Pleasant. The atmosphere is quaint, with very good energy. The food choices are fresh, and diverse. There is something for everyone. I ordered the Grilled Cheese Sandwich and it was the best I've ever had! EXCELLENT service.... More

We would have rated them excellent except they didn't have croissants and we ordered croissant sandwiches. The chicken salad sandwich was very good.

Homemade soups, speciality sandwiches, desserts and coffee. Order at the counter, but read the blackboards before hand so you are decided when it's your turn in line. Sandwiches all served with chips, and made fresh. Never had a bad sandwich here.
