If you don't pay attention, you will miss this place. It's a very small place, but it makes up for it with some of the best food in the downtown area. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is cozy. I must say they have some of the friendliest waitresses on the island. If you can take being in a small, galley-type place, then go here. Your choice of seating is to sit at the counter or less than 2 feet behind you are a row of tables lined up against the wall. If you want breakfast, get there before 10:15. They start running out of breakfast items usually around that time. They also close at 11 to prepare for the lunch crowd. Smart way to do business and definitely cuts down on the waste.

Don't let the looks deceive you, the best burgers on the island. A much better choice for breakfast than anyplace in downtown.

The owner is the one on the grill, his attention to detail shows.

While tiny, this place is big on great food. The breakfasts are fantastic (don't miss the pancakes), and the hamburgers at lunch rate up there as one of the very best (voted by everyone in our family). We return to Mackinac Island year after year, and make sure to eat here several times during our stay on the island.

We had breakfast here every day for the week we were on the island, and three lunches as well! We LOVE the place.
