Had breakfast here on a recent trip. The service was a little slow but the food was great. Able to eat outside with a nice view of the water.

We were traveling through from Mackinac to Traverse City when we happened upon this place. Warm, friendly, and super accommodating to those with food sensitivities. Food was great and coffee too. I plan on stopping by every time I pass through.

This place cafe is a nice, casual stop for coffee and pastries. Raspberry Kringle was yummy! Sidewalk seating was pleasant.
