The breakfast and coffee was great, just a little quirky ordering and then hoping they find you with your order. The breakfast menu seems to on the limited lite side, not like a full stick to the ribs menu, but it was excellent!

This small coffee and ice cream shop in the small village of Interlochen, home to the world-famous Interlochen Arts Academy, has been a God-send for the village, with generous hours of operation, good coffee, good ice cream, good food.

I don't work there, mind you, but I do know Bud's has about a half dozen salads available and at least one veggie wrap. Less regular are vegan soup offerings and a veggie "burger."
