Great Fun

The Falling Rock is great. A bookstore, beautiful local crafts, great coffee, lovely waitstaff, good food, and ice cream. Free WiFi and lots of tables. A really nice way to spend a rainy afternoon in Munising.

We came upon this bookstore/cafe by accident while walking around the downtown area. It was great to find this cozy oasis with its friendly staff, yards of books, and dessert offerings. My son and I got cookies and were pleased with them, and it was wonderful to see people just hanging out and chatting. We hope the Falling Rock survives... More

I really enjoyed my dinner at this place. The food was good- I ordered a pastie, garden salad, and a blueberry pie ice cream cone. The garden salad was great, plenty of fresh chopped vegetables. Prices were affordable and the staff was very friendly. The bookstore had plenty of used books to choose from and I loved the ambiance. I'll... More

This cafe/bookstore is adorable. Ample seating with rustic/antique decor. Order at the counter and get a little numbered log to put on your table. Someone will bring you your food and you bus your plates yourself. Breakfast food was amazing. The yogurt parfait was the best I've ever had. The wraps and bagel sandwiches were hearty and delicious. Very friendly... More

As book lovers we so enjoyed this place. The food was great and the staff most helpful in finding books of interest. There were also works or art and pottery to see and purchase. The interior was delightful.

The Falling Rock Cafe and Bookstore is right up the hill from the Pictured Rocks cruise dock. Post cruise, leave the car in the parking lot and walk to the cafe. Sandwiches and coffee are the mainstays. Soft drinks were quite limited, it looked like the fountain had been out of service for some time. My traveling partner considered the... More

Nothing fancy, nice selection of coffees, bagel type sandwiches, and ice cream. Unique setting, limited seating.

I had a beef pasty and my wife a breakfast burritos. Everything was tasty but servings were on the small side. Staff was friendly and hard working.

Food was yummy, great service. My husband and daughter had the breakfast burrito and I had the grilled chicken/avocado sandwich. Everyone enjoyed their food. Loved the atmosphere. Probably my favorite meal in Munising.
