I love that Heather's offers fresh, vegan/vegetarian options with a rotating menu. Food is good, but children's menu is very sparse/disappointing. Prices are a bit high. Atmosphere is severely lacking. Very cold and uncomfortable. Don't order soda because you'll get a can. Not a lot of beverage choices. Nice concept, but needs refining.

Kinda hard to find from SB I-75, but after several false turns, I found it. Really wanted to eat here, but it was closed (guess AC went out). So I went to Tropical Smoothie Cafe instead. Not happy at all.

Lunch was very good. Healthy meal, nice atmosphere. Staff was friendly and informed. I will go again. If you in Bay City at lunch time check it out.

My vegan mother-in-law took us here and I must admit I was not disappointed. The food was very good and the service was very friendly. I'll admit the drinks left a bit too be desired but it is not a turn off. The quality of the food is good and the atmosphere is nice.

This continues to be a great place for breakfast. I especially like the egg scramble and the sunflower wheat bread. Wait staff is excellent even when place is really busy. Coffee is their weak spot. Highly recommend Heathers!

We came here for breakfast on the way to Traverse city and I ordered the egg scramble with mushrooms and cheese. It was not bad, the mushrooms were very tasty, the eggs were just slightly dry, but that is a matter of taste. The cheese was however, bitter tasting. The eggs came with a choice of sides, and I chose... More

Every town needs a little place like Heather's. The food is fresh and unique, the setting is like being in a co-op in San Francisco. Amazing little place. BTW The Mediterranean sandwich is to die for!

The vegan peanut butter layered cheesecake/cream pie was honestly one of the best things I've ever eaten! Also, I'm not vegan but we recently moved and drove an hour and a half because I love the Unchicken sandwich THAT much. I've never had a bad meal there - it makes me wish I lived closer again!
