An internet oasis with good coffee and sandwiches.

I have stopped in several times over the past three summers to use the wifi. The atmosphere was friendly, the Internet was reliable and there was a nice variety food items and beverages. A fun place to stop and relax when you are in the Munising area.

Always a good place for coffee - sure wish they were open on Sunday though. We had an early hockey game on Sunday and a good coffee would have been a bonus.

Friendly staff, good food and books, what is there more too like. This is one of the few, if not only place, that has non fried healthy fresh food in Munising. We had been here before for tea or ice cream but only ate here the last day. I wish we had known this before as the sandwiches were fantastic.... More

We were in several times during our stay in the area. Good sandwiches for lunch, breakfast is fantastic too. Stopped. In for an ice cream one afternoon. Books and local art is neat to look at too. Loved.the screen door on the front of the place. Convenient to the docks if you are going on the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore Cruise... More

I had a quick capuccino in the Falling Rock Cafe & Bookstore while waiting for the Pictured Rocks Cruise. The place is great to chill out and read a book while drinking or snacking something. The Cafe is visited by a mix of locals and tourists and You can have a chat with both of them very easily. Luckily these... More

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
