I've been to the Falling Rock before, about 3 summers ago. Love the local books, art & L Superior/UP trinkets. We had breakfast croissants that were terrific. Flaky, buttery. The eggs were cooked perfectly. The right balance of everything. My son had a cinnamon roll that was also very good. Lattes are always good, a bit heavy on the milk.... More

Falling Rock Café is a pleasant lunch alternative in downtown Munising, near the boat docks for the Pictured Rocks cruises. There is no table service; sandwiches, special coffees and ice cream are ordered at a counter and brought to your table when ready. Several vegetarian options are available among the breakfast and lunch sandwich options. I had a "build your... More

Our food was great. We each ordered sandwiches before our sunset cruise, across the street. Wonderful atmosphere surrounded by books, new and used, which we browsed while waiting.

Very nice store on the main street. Enjoyed perusing the books while having a cup of joe. Standard price and they do offer breakfast items. Large seating area.

We had lunch here before going out for the boat ride. It is located in town and is a place to grab quick bite with fresh and healthy food . Order at the the counter and the food is brought out to you. Tables are situated in a book store/gift shop, which is unique. Several vegetarian/vegan options.

The food is okay, some was good but it took forever! We were a party of 3 and another of 5. Sandwiches came out two at a time and those first served were done eating by the time the last came out. (Some people who came in much later got their sandwiches before we got all of ours) They do... More

We met a friend here for lunch (it was the halfway meeting place)- it was terrific! We didn't have long to wait to order (you order at the counter and they will bring your food to the table). I had a cup of stuffed pepper soup and half a grilled cheese (with bacon) sandwich- both were so good!! My friends... More

We stopped in for coffee and to check out the bookstore. My husband ordered a 1-shot cappuccino, and I ordered a 1-shot iced soy mocha. We were given a number, so we wandered into the other room of the bookstore. Long story short, it took almost 15 minutes for our two coffee drinks! There were many employees (maybe too many),...

Unique set-up with cafe food, ice cream, and books for sale around the dining room. Being Saturday, it was pretty busy so was a little unclear where the line was, as well as the fact that the person who scoops your ice cream won't be the person who checks you out so you either pay first or wait in line...
