Malted Blueberry Pancakes

They know how to make pancakes at Michigan Thyme Cafe like no one else I've tried before. Something about the malt that they probably put in with the other ingredients and the blueberries that are famous from that area of Lake Michigan are large and juicy and more than enough of them.

We had breakfast at Michigan Thyme. Very cute inside. Nice outdoor patio with lots of flowers, a big tree & a birdhouse feature wall. The breakfasts we had were the freshest ingredients & prepared just right. I had a Swiss / Bacon quiche that melted in my mouth and had tasty fresh fruit with it. My husband had fluffy scrambled...

My wife and I ate breakfast here at the end of a week of beach vacationing in Union Pier. The atmosphere was nice in the outdoor seating area. The restaurant was quite busy while we were there and the waitresses were doing everything they could to keep up. The crab cake breakfast was really nice.

Took the family for dinner and sat outside. Pizza for everyone - very good. Service was OK, but they were pretty busy, so to be expected. Also we were a party of 8, so that always takes longer.

Nice little cafe for all day breakfast, or lunch or whatever you are hungry for. Nice outdoor patio too. The food is good served in a very casual environment.
