Came with a group of about 100 people after a day at Pictured Rocks. Despite the large size of the group, we were each served with patience and grace! Shop is filled with UP treasures- many interesting books and gifts. Ice cream was wonderful, will definitely be back to try to food and coffee. This place is a great find!

We ate lunch here after backpacking at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. You order at a counter and seat yourself in a bookstore/gift shop, and they bring it to you when ready. You can browse the books on the shelves or look in the back at some locally crafted gifts while waiting for your food. My wife and I ordered soup... More

You order up on one side and then go over into the bookstore area, sort of, to sit down. Great coffee, medium and dark roasts seem to be the most popular, they have beans in the bag too for taking some home and you should. Sandwiches are very good and the ice cream is too. This is a very popular... More

Going off of other reviews from Trip Advisor, the wife and I stopped here for lunch and coffee as soon as we got into town on our October 2016 up north honeymoon. The place is unique and quaint. It’s like an old fashion sandwich shop meets small town library/book store. It was clean with very friendly staff. The deli sandwiches... More

The food was DELISH and the lattes and ice cream also! The book selection was perhaps not what it used to be - however - lots of great crafts and arts. A fun way to spend the afternoon!

Stopped in after the cruise for coffee, sandwiches and ice cream. Neat place to relax and enjoy lunch. They had 1/2 off ice cream the day we stopped in and it was amazing!

A nice warm place to get a great cup of coffee. Once inside you will notice plenty of room to get a book and read for a while. They also have muffins, scones, and locally made gifts for sale as well.

Quaint little coffeehouse/bookstore with fantastic breakfast burritos and sandwiches that we couldn't finish (they were good size!). Will for sure return on our next Munising trip!

Stopped here for a quick bite and found it to be a very charming little cafe, bookstore and art shop. Just made you feelwarm and fuzzy all over. It's a nice place to stop and eat and keep warm and relax. I highly recommend it! The food is great and the ambiance terrific!

In a small town where commercial floor space is not at a premium this is a great place to hang out. There are good healthy made-to-order sandwiches. You can then move into the bookstore and craft market in the other half of the store to sit down at one of an array of antique tables. You are then surrounded by... More
