Quaint, small place, but quick service, excellent breakfast choices at the buffet. Very nice place to grab a bite to eat.

Went there for ice cream. It was average, at best. Waiting for 30 minutes to be served. The place was dirty, serviced by young, overworked kids and the line was poorly managed. Should have gone to Kilwins

We were on a trip from Holland MI to Chicago travelling the shore of Lake Michigan and happened on this restaurant. Just a great place with excellent wait staff who made sure our coffee cups were full. Highly recommend.

Great place to get great coffee early in the morning. There weren't many restaurants open early so this was a treat.

We ordered the fried pickles which were AMAZING!! They were literally fried lightly breaded dill spears, yum!! I had the cordon... More

My friends and I ordered sandwiches to pick up on the way back from the beach. I chose one of their specialties - Italian Beef. It was supposed to be Roast Beef with Mozzarella, sautéed peppers and onions on a sub roll. The roast beef was gray and had no taste, there were no peppers, two lonely pieces of very... More

I hate to say it, but a tad pricey for the fare, but hey...it is a tourist town and this location is right in the middle of it. I don't want to sway you from eating there...just be aware you are paying for location and chance to get great ice-cream!
