I have been to Everyday People Cafe several times and always enjoyed in the past..this time not so much. The Charcuterie and Drunken Shrimp starters were very good, but a few of us had the duck (which wasn't very good quality duck to start with) and ordered medium rare and it came out rare (when you can't chew it it's...

It pains me to write this! We considered this spot one of our favorites although we have not been there for several years. Things seem to have gone down hill. So we planned a trip to Saugatuck to see the fall colors and celebrate our anniversary. We checked their website and there was a vegetarian enter which sounded great. It... More

This restaurant got us seated on short notice this Sunday. We enjoy this place for its fresh made fresh food. It didn't disappoint this time either. The cheese and meat plate was generous and tasty. The ham and egg sandwich was substantial and tasty as was the lobster roll. Good service as well despite being busy. They have drink specials... More

Heard this place was great - and it exceeded those high expectations. A street lined cafe with exceptional food options, atmosphere, service and the bottomless bubbles were enjoyed by my GF.

Lunch on Friday and brunch on Sunday - we knew which of the two street doors was the active one so we were second in line for lunch and first in line for brunch. Yes, there is usually a line but there's a good reason. The food is excellent, the service excellent, and the incidental conversations with the other diners... More

We waited for the reservation, waited for the table, waited for the underwhelming food (my daughter got sick from the seafood pasta), waited for the check and then waited another 25 minutes for the waiter to return to take payment. NOT a family friendly atmosphere.

Coming to the area looking at houses, we were told to visit "Everyday People Cafe", so we did! Very cool old building, the decor following along with it. Bright and cheerful dinning room with a peak-a-boo view of the water. Service was friendly and efficient. Plenty of smiling faces make the visit that much more enjoyable. The menu has small... More

Just close your eyes and point to anything and eat it and be amazed. We ate the left side of the menu and everything was awesome. Great service and happy patrons.

Between Wild Dog Grille, across the street, and Everyday People Cafe, you cannot go wrong for great places to eat in Douglas. The staff is very informative and friendly. The restaurant is bright and airy. The menu changes with the season. The steak was cooked to perfection and came with creamy mashed potatoes and broccoli that was perfectly seared. The... More

We make every attempt to get to this restaurant when we spend our summers in Michigan. Great "clean" food and friendly wait staff. Although the restaurant is bigger than it seems, it is good to get there near opening time of 5:30 as it fills up fast. Although the menu is not lengthy, the choices will fit everybody's desires.
