My wife and I recently ate breakfast here while in Michigan City for a high school reunion. The food was outstanding (tasty and very filling), service was great, and the restaurant decor was very good, too. Would definitely eat here again when in MC.

Yes, they have carry out. Just call ahead and they will have it ready. But I he service is fast there, so unless you're in a real hurry you can probably sit down and eat and be done quickly.
