“Consistently great.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Limited repertoir-sandwiches and coffee. but executed to perfection. I had the corned beef panini, with cherry kraut, but all the sandwiches and burgers are delicious.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Relaxing atmosphere. Kid friendly. And of course, great food! I can't wait to go back.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Every time I visit Interlochen I stop at Bud's. They make a great BLT. Ice cream, coffee, desserts, gift shop, charming decor, fireplace in the winter, outdoor seating in the summer - they have it all.

“A great place!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

What a great place to slip into, and slip out of everything you are doing. Cool and very casual, like going to your aunt or uncle's cabin for lunch. Good cheeseburger, great cappucchino (I know, give me grief on that one) and an amazing cherry chunk cookie. Wifi and a good selection of expensive chocolate bars. All good here!

“cozy, fun, good food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is a 'local place', but you won't feel like an intruder when you visit. Walking distance from Interlochen School of the Arts, the restaurant can be bouncing with young folks ordering ice cream, or it may be as quiet as a library, perfect for a peaceful meal. It's always delightful. The food is really good, with creative offerings. The front room has great merchandise to shop thru while you wait for your order - like a Cracker Barrel, but much nicer stuff. Decor is northwoods. Fireplace. Outdoor seating. Coffee drinks that beat Starbucks.
