My husband and I like trying vegetarian fare in new places. We ate the Tofu Scramble (it only needed some hot sauce and a touch of ketchup). Hot coffee was bottomless. This place serves breakfast all day, too. I love the setting in South Haven, just a walk away from the pier and lighthouse. Enjoy!

I can't get enough of this place. My daughter, granddaughter and I are here often. We even have our own waitress (I won't mention her name because I need her available when I get their). From the simple eggs and toast to the totally fulfilling lox platter, you just cant go wrong. The staff is the best and the atmosphere... More

Stopped here for lunch. Lots of variety on the menu, some unique options. I had the veggie sandwich, which was tasty. My wife had the crab sandwich, which I thought was just OK. Prices were reasonable, but I wouldn't call this an exceptionally great value. I would probably order off the breakfast menu next time, but overall it was a... More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch on a Saturday. The place was decently busy but not crazy. I had their Reuben Sandwich with corned beef, my wife had the Turkey Cranberry Crunch, and we both had coleslaw on the side. The Reuben was quite good; the meat was very tender and it had good flavors. My wife... More

This is a must do for everyone. The menu choices are truly a variety and not just a lot of the same things with different sides. I had a hard time deciding between the Smoked Salmon breakfast plate and the Mini Waffle plate so I chickened out and went with the Waffles. I wasn't disappointed because the mini waffles packed...

Stopped for a late lunch enroute to Chicago. Friendly staff, nice menu, prompt service. Great crab-cakes and delicious homemade falafel. Kids enjoyed their sandwiches and burgers too.

Stopped here on a recent visit to South Haven. We wanted breakfast and were very pleasantly surprised by this place. The mini waffles were light and crisp, and the eggs were fresh and a generous serving. Good attention to refilling coffee and checking table. We will be back and try lunch next time. Very nice overall experience!

I've been going here for many years. I love the vegetarian sandwich. The toppings are a great combination. My fiancé loves the crab cakes, eggs Benedict and the steak hash (special).

Had a great beef brisket sandwich!! The breakfast choices look amazing too. The homemade slaw on my sandwich I could eat by the bowlful!! My husband had a jalapeno rueben which he loved!! The service was a little slow but I think this was more of a overcrowding problem then the actual server.
