Excellent way to taste and check out the orchard without having to drive to it. It's all here in the store, pies and all. Great!

Stopped in with my wife and a friend on a cold and rainy day visiting local antique shops. Perfect time for a good bowl of chili and a slice of peach pie. Try "your grandpa's tea" which is 50% apple cider and 50% tea.

This restaurant opened July, 2010 in the downtown area. Everything is homemade with local ingredients; desserts made with Michigan fruit. Wonderful!
