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

We came for coffee and dessert and returned for a breakfast before we left South Haven. The desserts ranged from decadently rich cakes to healthy muffins.

The fellow at the visitor center recommended this restaurant for a quick lunch before we began our bike ride. It was a good recommendation. We shared a smoothie which was a refreshing treat... More
