We stopped there this morning for breakfast on our way up scenic 119. We were very impressed. The service was wonderful, the food was fabulous and the decor was lovely. We will definitely be going back! Looking forward to a return trip!!

I think their hours are 8:00 am to 3:00 pm but they could be changing due to winter and I believe they plan to serve dinner soon. To be sure you can give them a call at (231)526-6992.
