Even though we called at ten minutes to closing, they were very gracious about our last-minute take out order. It was ready when we arrived, and the woman at the counter was really nice. The food we ordered was fresh, wholesome and very tasty! I'm on a special diet, and it's rare to get something that fits my diet that... More

We went for breakfast, arrived around 9:45am on a Sunday. We had two breakfast sandwiches on croissants and they were very, very good! We also enjoyed a pastry that was delicious!

Off the main road but great little place. Everything is very fresh and they offer a great selection. Love their soup and sandwich combos and their cookies are fabulous. Always take friends when we are in South Haven and have never been disappointed.

If you are accustomed to Starbucks prices, then bring a couple more dollars and enjoy your breakfast sandwich or danish etc. Yummy coffee and food, good location near the library, not on the main drag so not so busy

I really like this place and my wife did too. Her Fiesta wrap and my Italian were very good. The pesto and salami were a lovely combination. Like a better quality Panerai bread with better flavor.
