“Expensive Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Ate pizza here a second time only because it was a farewell meal say good by to friends. Did not think we'd return because a 12" sausage & mushroom & pepperoni pizza was = $16.95 Expensive pizza! Try other places - quality not worth the cost!

“A 'Local' break!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

We stopped for a break after hiking the trail at the park. Great little local store with quality service---and a good beer!

“Not to be Missed on the North Shore Part II”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Though ownership has changed hands since we visited a year ago quality is unchanged. I am not a big fan of pizza, but this was truly a four star meal and the best pizza I have ever enjoyed.
We kept it simple - a cheese pizza with Canadian Bacon and mushrooms on whole grain crust. We were informed there would be a 45 minute wait they don't serve frozen pizza, made from scratch, all fresh ingredients.
The wait was made easier by draft beers from Alaskan and Great Lakes as well as a large selection of wines and bottled beers.
Try to save room for bakery fresh desserts- good luck!

Had "to-go" sandwiches from here while planting trees all weekend; delicious bread, excellent sandwiches. Just wish I could have had more than one.

“Lucky Us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

While vacationing on the Northshore we chanced upon Chicago Bay Marketplace while searching for a community dance in Hovland. Not only did we get directions to Ole Olsen Old Time Orkestra but the best blueberry pie ever! We even made an out of the way trip to sample their carmel rolls the next day.
