They were very busy when we were there. It was around lunch time. We had to wait a little bit for our sandwiches but we were not in a rush and the wait was well worth it. All four of us really liked our sandwiches. They were all warm sandwiches so that would add to the prep time. The staff... More

Down home atmosphere! Good food and coffee. There was a local music group playing while we were there which was very enjoyable! This is a MUST visit when coming to Munising!

This gem should be in Ann Arbor, Royal Oak, or Traverse City! It's not just another coffee shop or tourist trap. It has a prime location is near the tourist activities in Munising, namely the boat tours for the Pictured Rocks. They have a small library in the back, an enormous sitting area next to a stage for live performances,... More

The Falling Rock Cafe and Bookstore is in its 10th year of providing access to great coffee, sandwiches, soup, other lunch and dinner items and ice cream. We found that there are 50,000 new and used books to browse and lots of local crafts and gift items. It's a friendly place and seems to have become the center of the... More

Stopped in after the sunset cruise. Ice cream was outstanding. Sat down in the back room to listen to the live band on Saturday night in late September.

We grabbed coffee and a bite to eat on the way to the falls. It was crowded and took longer than expected but I think part of it was because there was a new barista and she was learning the ropes. I had a very good egg sandwich, family had bagels and coffee. We took it to go because it... More

We stopped here for lunch after a recommendation from a worker at the Pictured Rock cruises. We had a couple of hours before our cruise so we had a delicious lunch and hung out enjoying the environment and using the wi-fi. We had a BLT and BBQ sandwich as well as the chicken and rice and lobster bisque soup. The... More

We loved the coffee here. I love how much customization they allow with all of their drinks! Another plus of eating here? The beautiful works of local artists. We bought several gifts here for friends and family. Really gorgeous stuff.
