Good Breakfast

The breakfast was good, service was good. Nothing too fancy, just a good old American eggs, potatoes, meat, and toast kind of thing. The biscuits and gravy was great! Everything was clean and cooked well. Seemed like a local favorite.

My husband and I live in the area south, and have wondered for years where people go for breakfast up that way. It is worth driving north of town to this charming little diner. We both enjoyed our simple country breakfasts outside on the porch. Our waitress was very attentive and obviously used to more demanding clientele. We were in... More

Be careful bringing children here! The owner doesn't like children. Screamed at my child made him cry! Food is mediocre at best. Go to Taste it's Awesome!!!!

When I service South Haven I look forward to eating at Cousins. They have a friendly wait staff and the signature meals are flavorful and served with ample portions. This is a traditional sit and eat diner, clean and unpretentious. I haven't been dissatisfied yet. Check out the pie menu.

Breakfast or lunch, the place to stop! Prices reasonable, food fresh and hot, ask for Allison-she's very sweet! Outdoor dining when the weather is right, Blueberry pancakes all summer! We love this place. Feel like small town welcome every time!

This is exactly the place you're looking for, if you want a home cooked meal. Our server was also great (Tammy or Tabby???)

In my opinion this place is way overpriced for the very small amount of food you get for your money. Quality and tasted was poor. My first and last visit….. Never again!

My favorite meal of the day and props to the laundry mat lady for the referral. The Pot Roast on burnt home fries, smothered in cheese, two eggs cooked medium on top, I'm in heaven! The grilled biscuit smothered in strawberry jam, as well as perfectly toasted fresh bread, My Goodness, it's great to Eat Here! You wouldn't think the... More
