Small but very good food, served piping hot. Excellent coffee. Quick, friendly service and several menu choices for breakfast. Provides the breakfast for the nearby Blue Star Hotel. Look for the big ice Cream cone on top of the building.

Every time we're in Saugatuck/Douglas, we come here for breakfast. I don't know whether the ownership has changed but the place has been cleaned up, painted, restored - it's wonderful. The service is excellent, quick, friendly, and attentive. Nothing fancy about the food - no micro servings, tastings, kale, or deep-fried pomegranate seeds on squid. Good food prepared well and...

Nice diner look and feel. Drawings and paintings of movie posters that were actually created in the 1920's. The omelet looked way too big but was so light and fluffy that it was no problem to finish. Small town.....small diner. It was the perfect place to visit while in the area.

We've gone there twice. Once just to get the soft serve ice cream (or maybe it's frozen yogurt) and once to get dinner and ice cream. The soft serve ice cream is great - very thick, good flavor, and they give you a lot for the price. For dinner we had gyros and veggie gyros from the lunch menu. They... More

This place has changed since my prior visits. Service is now appalling in the dining area. One waitress with one very large table and five other tables. Allegedly no other waitresses. Everyone was complaining about the delays. Food for the large table came out over a 15 minutes period. When one group left, she did not charge them for the... More

We frequently stopped by for ice cream in the evening while vacationing in Saugatuck last month. The prices are much more reasonable than downtown. Service is good although they get busy. We had dinner there one night and the food was OK ( fish and chips). No complaints but nothing to get excited about. I will go back for the... More

Cones are still large and options many. Hand dipped local or soft serve. Small cafe with limited menu hit or miss.
