This is a great spot to stop for lunch while traveling. It is so much better than any of the other quick options in the area. We got four different sandwiches and everyone really enjoyed what they got. We will definitely stop again. It's also a big bonus that they have vegetarian options.

This is a great place, albeit a little hard to find. The food was excellent, the staff was very nice the decor and ambiance was very nice. I am only sorry I was so full I couldn't try one of the fabulous looking deserts.

I'm so glad you found us! Our address does not come up on the GPS system and the street sign has been down for a couple of months (again...) - I am sorry for the inconvenience! We are hoping to be able to have better signage out by the highway after the City of Manistique completes their new campground to... More

We always pop in for a coffee, yesterday we had a almond joy ice coffee, sat outside on the patio, enjoying our coffees and admiring the view! Life is good!

Awesome! Thanks for trying our new iced coffees - they seem to be gaining in popularity! We just trimmed the wetland trees out by the river, so I am hoping you were able to take in the beautiful view and catch a few of the sweet birds & butterflies that call our wetland home! Thanks again for stopping by! More

When passing through Manistique, we saw the usual fast food, but then a small sign for this deli. Pulled a u-turn and we were not disappointed. Great deli sandwiches - hot and cold, homemade soup and scones. Far superior to any fast food for not much more money. Highly recommended!

Found this place while fishing. This is a truly hidden gem. The menu is large and each sandwich comes on your choice of homemade bread. This is a most stop if your in town.

Whenever in Manistique try to stop here for lunch. Awesome homemade sandwiches, cookies, & cakes. Staff very friendly & personable. Only open from 10-3 during summer & 10-2 in winter, but a must do! If there in the summer sit outside on patio if you can!

I sat in the parking lot of one of the chains and said, "There's got to be a better place." So i checked trip advisor and The Upper Crust showed up. The food was fantastic, the place immaculately clean, and the employees were very friendly. I'll be back.
