Breakfast was ok, nothing special. Basic breakfast that I could make at home. Having Fox News playing on the tv in the cafe was unfortunate.

The bakery/donut section was great. Lots of fresh variety first thing. They seem to have a short line that moves quickly. The breakfast cafe was another matter though. Hospital cafeteria all the way. Seemed to be a local older men hang though.

We stopped here after a late lunch at Clementines, and before continuing our trip back home. The bakery section had a nice selection of cookies and bakery from which to choose (of which we purchased several options). The staff person was very friendly and accommodating....This little episode gave us several days of tasty memories from our South Haven visit.More

Let me start by saying, the wonderful ladies who work here are the greatest. The system in place just isnt working. They need more help, a better way of getting food out faster. The wait time is very long and people walk out. The food...is great and very reasonable. Management can you just work on that.More

Stopped in for breakfast. Food was excellent. Service was outstanding. People who are working there were extremely friendly. Would definitely go back again. Bakery items looked AMAZING but I held strong and didn’t buy anything because my waistline wouldn’t benefit from the items they’re selling....If you’re looking to indulge in some awesome looking sweet treats, definitely stop in at this bakery.More

Had breakfast at this place on a Saturday morning and really enjoyed it. Everyone was lined up buying baked goods - which looked amazing. Breakfast is ordered in line on the other side. Staff was very informative when ordering and brought us our food in...no time to our table. The food was quite tasty, expensive and service was quick. I would return to this establishment.More

We always come here when in town- the restaurant is clean and the service is great(miss Laurie and miss Brittany). My hubby gets the eggs , bacon and cheese on a bagel or some other variation - it’s perfectly cooked each time (he privately calls...the chef grandma). The sausage gravy is the best I’ve had and the biscuits are perfect . Even the egg white omelets are delish!!More

This was our first pick for breakfast on our weekend camping getaway this fall. Delicious pastries and donuts. Everyone found something they loved... lemon puff, pumpkin donut, apple cinnamon and cranberry walnut scones. Fresh coffee. It was a great stop and we carried our hot...coffee down to South Beach afterwards which is a scenic and easy walk away. Didn't eat anything hot, but the bakery selection was HUGE from breakfast items to cookies, cakes, and other desserts.More

Finding an old school mom and pop bakery is becoming harder to find. Stepping through the door was like going back in time. I stocked up on goodies to take back home and share....all made on site.....blueberry chip cookies, almond cookies, caramel apple, and a...honey bun with caramel icing....yummy!More
