Excellent pie and breakfast

This is a diner-style Midwestern restaurant...you will find no Sriracha, aioli, free range beef or mixed greens here. We're talking crinkle cut fries and iceberg lettuce with the ambience to match. That said up front, they do a great breakfast and great pie and the service is generally good to... read more

This is our favorite place for breakfast in South Haven and they have it available any time they are open. THe Bacon is always crispy, and my pooched eggs are always medium. Their biscuits are always very good. Great place for friends and family.

Thank you Mary Cousins for a most warm welcome to South Haven! My family had only been in South Haven for two days (moving from Chicago) when we decided to try Cousins for breakfast this morning. The kids pronounced the biscuits and gravy some of the best they had ever had (and they are pretty much experts on this topic).... More

Our server was very rude and not attentive at all. The food was good. The turkey club had a ton of meat on it but the meal was ruined by our server. We won't go back.

We ate here twice for breakfast while visiting South Haven. The menu is large, service great and friendly, and the breakfast each day was huge and delicious. I would highly recommend Cousins if you love a big breakfast.

We decided to spend 6 nights at the Cousins RV Park and upon arrival needed some lunch. There were 3 of us and 2 of us had their chicken salad wrap with fries. It was tasty with sweet bits of craisans, grapes and nuts, and the fries were perfect. One of us had the club sandwich which was truly stacked... More

We enjoyed breakfast with a good selection and lunch also. Nothing fancy just good service and plain cooking with quite a variety to choose.

This is an older cafe/diner style restaurant. Cheap eats that are good. Actually my over hard eggs were cooked to perfection, with no crispy edges. Waffle with really fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream were great. Coffee is very good. Went back for a quick dinner. The hot roast beef with mashed potatoes. And green beans was good for 8$.... More
