“Super friendly, so much more than custard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

What a great place.

The owners / employees are very nice and friendly, even serving us a much needed pitcher cold water before they were open.

This is much more than custard, with Gyros, hot dogs, sandwiches, and wood fired pizza (they've built a quasi-outdoor pizza oven). While I was there the owner's father showed up with a large bunch of fresh basil that he pulled out of the garden and drove down the to restaurant for the pizza.

The location is perfect and the roof top seating is also nice. We will definitely stop by on our next visit to Grand Marais.

“A great spot for a short break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

The custard is great. The pizza is good but made even better by the roof top dining overlooking the lake. On a sunny day this is a prime rest stop.

“Delicious gyro served at closing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

The nice girl turned the grill back on for me to make me a really good gyro three minutes before closing time last night. It did not seem to come from a real gyro spit, but the flavor was genuine.

“Great stop after Artist's point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Great selection of fro zen treats, coffees and snacks. We had custard. It is a little pricey as everything in touristy towns seems to be. We sat outside and people watched while we ate.

“service is a little slow...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

...but food is lovely (especially the "sydnami" desserts) and they have a perfect little rooftop area for relaxing and looking out on the lake...
