Found this place while on vacation. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, really good coffee. Within walking distance of the Oscoda Beach and the downtown area.

1st attempt to visit we found it closed on a regular business day during normal business hours. 2nd visit We walked in to find people seemingly milling about waiting for service while standing (no table service) When were asked for a menu a female employee pointed to a wall sign without saying a word. Maybe it was difficult for her... More

Tiny restaurant, delicious food. They have the best turkey sandwich, and always have delightful desserts. The flower gardens are also lovely.

I love this little coffee shop and try to stop in here when I'm in Oscoda. It's a "redone" small cottage, converted into a coffee shop just a block away from the beach. It has speciality coffee, desserts, scones, bagels,,etc. and also serves light lunches (homemade soup/sandwiches) They also carry a small unique line of kitchen accessories that make great... More

The eastern part of Michigan, - the Lake Huron side - is quite different from it's western cousin. In my experience, there are very few truly nice hotels and in general, you get the sense that the people who come here are more grounded, more "salt of the earth". I love that. There is a downside, and that is the... More

the coffee shop is one block off of the main road but worth the extra effort to go and have a cup of coffee or a sandwich. Very cute inside, small and intimate inside. Very friendly workers and the owners make their own sweets. Sandwiches very good. Very close to Lake Huron, a nice walk to go and see the... More

My wife and I were traveling thru Oscoda during the lunch time and I looked for places to eat on my trip advisor site. It recommended this restaurant so we stopped. It is kind of hidden at the end of the street. The place is very small. But the food was very good. All of there fare is homemade and... More
