Great place

I love the location of this cafe (of the main area) because if seems so much more personal. The food is always good and the tea and coffee are great!

Great coffee - really nice owner, offered to go out of his way and make something special/close to something that was no longer available on their menu. Only thing is, it's such good coffee, that there is usually a long wait.

I went here about 8:30 in the morning on the way to the Washington Island ferry. For vacationers, it may be a bit early but not for workers. The line was up the stairs and out the door. I had the maple latte. Really tasty. I haven't tried the food, but judging by the crowd, I'm guessing it's all good.... More

Base camp is a new place in the county, tucked into the basement of a retail store. The menu is not extensive, offering under 10 choices each for breakfast and lunch, but what they do offer is really quite good. They have a limited beer and wine selection as well. I had the curried egg salad wrap and a bowl... More

What a find, tucked downstairs in an old building that was once a town hall building. I knew it was a good pick as soon as I walked in as there were lots of locals. Loved the theme of outdoors, adventures and the great pix on the walls of owners own adventures.

This place is amazing! The menu is outstanding for both breakfast and lunch and the coffee and pastries were spectacular. The space is also really cute. I highly recommend that you don't pass up the almond croissant if there is one there.

Wonderful breakfast for he whole family. Fresh and super tasty. The atmosphere was cozy and everything clean. The daily quiche was wonderful and the Bombalina was the most amazing dish (banana slices, granola, milk, whipped cream and caramel sauce).

This is what Starbuck's would be if a family ran it. Food is fresh and beautifully flavorful. Coffee is perfect. Many beverage and food choices.

I love this little basement coffee bar. Their drinks are very good and sometimes I want to try something different and the baristas always have a recommendation to try. I have tried a number of pastries which are fulfilling to my sweet tooth. I hope to come for their delicious sounding lunch choices, there's always a good reason to return... More
