Always stop & have a coffee & some form of pastry while in town. Have not eaten in the cafeteria - usually just a table on the sidewalk.

Don't mind the semi-cafeteria style, and the dining area is pleasant and clean. But, that's where it ended for us.

Terrific bakery with a cafe. You can eat inside or outside. Although it may look like a cafeteria, breakfasts were cooked to order. We're glad we found this place. Loved the bludeberry muffins.

Everytime we come to South Haven I stop in here and get my almond log fix. They are the best! I've tried their cookies and they are really good also

This is the best bakery you will go to. Good chocolate icing, amazing Danish, and the French donuts on Fridays are great too.

We bought doughnuts and coffee cake to take home and try. My family thought it was delicious and every time we went into town, someone had to have something.
