My husband and I recently spent a weekend on Mackinac Island. As we walked from the ferry docks to our hotel, we noticed a line out the door at Starbucks. Based on the long line, I thought that was going to be our only option for coffee on the Island. Wrong! As we got closer to our hotel, I noticed J L Beanery. Unfortunately, it was late in the day, so I didn't have the chance to get coffee my first day on the Island. I did return the next two mornings and enjoyed delicious iced coffees, while my husband had regular drip coffee. We both loved our coffees. We both ordered breakfast sandwiches on the morning of our departure and they were outstanding! The ingredients were so fresh and prepared perfectly! I'm sad that we didn't have the chance to try some of the other menu items, but we'll just have to plan another trip to Mackinac Island to do so!
I kind of feel sorry for the folks who wasted so much of their time standing in line at Starbucks. J L Beanery has much better coffee than anything I've ever had at Starbucks. The service was tremendous and it was quick. More time to enjoy what the Island has to offer!
