We were staying with 2 other couples this past weekend. I called and they accepted a call ahead reservation for 6 or more. They sat us immediately when we arrived, which was great since all tables were full. Our server Michael was the best and the food was the same. I had read a few mixed reviews and I didn't... More

This weekend was our first get-away to Saugatuck/Douglas, MI, and several friends with very good taste recommended Everyday People to us for our anniversary dinner last night. We were not disappointed! A contemporary cafe with exceptional, professional wait staff and decent background music (Cold Play to Jack Johnson to James Taylor), the kitchen staff delivered a memorable meal! We shared...

Got a table right away. Nice atmosphere, but a bit chilly every time someone came in the front door, as we were seated near there. Server gave us additional time to look over the menu but didn't return for quite some time. Once we ordered, the meals came in a timely manner and the server checked back on us. The... More

We haven't been here for a while, but my wife and I really liked the breakfast here when we stayed in nearby Saugatuck. There had been a major Halloween party in Douglas the night before, and the other customers had obviously had a good time the night before - which made for an entertaining brunch. Good food, friendly service, but... More

My girlfriends and I had brunch at Everyday People yesterday. The food was excellent and our server, Michael was great! He made sure we had everything we needed and was very attentive (and kept our Champagne Flutes full.) Everyday People Cafe never disappoints! Thanks Michael and EPC!!!

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
