This is a good place in Munising to stop in and get a good variety of choices for a great cup of coffee. You can browse the bookstore, get a bite to eat, sit at a table and enjoy the WIFI.

We ate here while waiting for our cruise to take off. Great location in town. Walking distance to the cruise. This place offers awesome coffee, homemade sweets, and sandwiches. The decor is warm and welcoming. Stop in, grab coffee, shop the books, and take some whole bean coffee to go.

If you should happen to be in Munising, do yourself a favor and stop in here for food, coffee, ice cream. Quaint friendly place to relax after a long day of adventure in the area. Local musicians often perform in the evening, which made the ice cream that much better.

A major advantage of Trip Advisor reviews, as opposed to the AAA Tourbooks I have used for 30+ years, is getting several, or many, customers perspectives and experiences. There is no way I would rate Falling Rock best in Munising but obviously many other reviewers love it. I had a grilled pesto and provolone sandwich on marbled rye with pickle,... More

Really great food. Ambiance. Books. Unique, local-made crafts for sale. Great service. What more could you ask for? I got the Veggie and Humus on swirled multigrain bread and added a cup of their Stuffed Pepper Soup. After tasting the soup, I immediately regretted getting the sandwich, and wished I had opted for no sandwich and a bowl of this... More

Interesting location. Sandwich was fresh. I would definitely eat here several times during a visit. Better than many others in Munising.

The four of us(Mom, sister, daughter, myself - Ages 80,57,55,26) had sandwiches, coffees and bought books from this restaurant. When we were finished we stepped outside and I lit a cigarette. The owner promptly came out and asked me to move away from her building when smoking. We started walking down the sidewalk away from her building when she came... More

Simple cafe menu with well made sandwiches and coffees and hot cider. Whole sandwich with home made bread is $7.95 but pretty big. 1/2 is $4.95. Cider was excellent. Dining area is in with the books.

My boyfriend got a chicken bbq sandwich that was awesome. I got some provolone and pesto sandwich and it was eh and NOT worth the 7.99 price!!! For one slice of cheese, some pesto, lettuce, and a slice of tomato and onion. I'm sort of mad that I ordered it. But oh well. I thought it would be a grilled... More

We stopped in for coffee and a breakfast sandwich. LOVED the charm of all the dining room tables with mismatched chairs. The lattes were delicious and so was the sandwich. The coffees enjoyed there are served in mugs - some appear to be hand made and others with their logo on. I would definitely go back.
