I recently visited this coffee shop while on a trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much food they served as well as that they have live music on the weekends. The staff were friendly, the coffee plentiful, and the food was good. If you're in need of a rest after a long... More

We only had ice cream but the energy was awesome! Greeted by a friendly engaging young man and served promptly! They have a "mug club" where for a small fee you can have a mug hanging with your name on it. Great food offerings and an inviting seating area! Stop in!

I had a coffee and a breakfast burrito. The coffee was very good and the breakfast burrito was not bad. It was enjoyable to sit at one of the many tables surrounded by books and souvenirs for sale. The coffee shop is nicely located very close to The Pictured Rock tour line dock.

This is a must visit place in Downtown Munising. It is a small cafe, ice cream shoppe, and bookstore / library!!! How quaint and special! They have one of a kind books on local history to purchase (ask me how I know this!) and great hand scooped ice cream and sandwiches / wraps / smoothies etc. The old wooden screen... More

I was passing through Munising and thought I would check in with Trip Advisor for a lunch suggestion. Being the #1 suggested eating place, I of course chose Falling Rock and was so surprised. As previously described this truly is a quaint little cottagey bookstore and eatery that we so rarely come by. From the moment I walked in the... More

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
