“Generally great but unconventional pasties.”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

This tiny place at the top of State Street serves up big pasties in many varieties. I've been told that their pasties are not really the same thing as the traditional variety however their "big cheesy" (which is like a big pizza pocket) is delicious.

“Good wedges. RIP Myles.”
Reviewed June 9, 2010

So sad. You can get the wedges to go, and bake at home. The smell will draw you from the passing streets. This is not a restaurant, but a corner shop with food. Theres 3 stools in the shop. The owner passed away last year.

“Okay, lemme school y'all...”
Reviewed April 9, 2009

First, Teddywedgers are really wonderful. All of the varieties I've ever tried are great. I think the breakfast pasty without the sausage might be my favorite.

Second, traditional CORNISH-style pasties have huge crusts, and are made to be portable. Sort of a boxed lunch, without the box. They were originally created for mine tunnel workers who couldn't properly wash their hands before lunch, and had limited access to stoves or utensils - they could eat a hearty pasty, cold if necessary, without utensils, and they could just hold it by the crust while they ate it, and then throw away the finger-soiled crust. Are Teddywedgers traditional cornish-style pasties? Well, I guess not, but you aren't a filthy mine worker, are you? I guess you could say they are inspired by the cornish-style pasty - nice and crusty, but with a crust you ARE supposed to eat.

Third, the pasties you can typically find in the U.P. of Michigan are delicious, too, but they are often much more like a pot-pie you might find in the freezer section of you grocery store - often nice and flaky, fresh, and home made, but can be alot messier if you don't use utensils, or at least have a napkin ready, and they certainly aren't that 'portable'. In my experience, they're often full of a more 'stew-like' filling, whereas Teddywedgers are more chunky, and less runny.

“Not really Cornish, or Yooper”
Reviewed April 2, 2009

I'm an expat Cornishman and make annual trips through the Michigan UP, so I know my pastys. These aren't a good reprsentation of either Cornish or UP pasties.

First, the crusts aren't neat and tidy. It looks like it was thrown together. Plus, ours had been cooked to a black/grey finish.

The ingredients were quality - chopped flank steak, potatoes and onion, but no turnip, rutebaga or carrots. Not enoughh salt and pepper either.

All in all, you need to drive at least another hour north to get into good pasty country near the UP. These are sad things, really.
