A large couple rooms in which to do your internet, drink coffee w/free refills, or drink creatively beautiful hot choc, ice cream, etc. Lots of used books and some new, also pottery and inkjet prints, knitted hats, etc.

There aren't many restaurant choices in Munising MI, but we hit the jackpot on this one. We picked up soup and sandwiches following a ski outing and ended up eating at the Falling Rock twice. The hammy sammy was a delicious grilled ham/cheese with a variety of fixings-we both loved it for $8. The tortilla soup was to-die-for delicious costing... More

They have the best cherry coffee I have ever had in Michigan! So glad I ordered a bunch and gave a few away for presents, of course keeping 2 bags for myself! Food selection is small but the place is friendly and pleasant to just sit and enjoy! We will be back.

We arrived a hour after sundown, weary from a 400 mile trip on snow-packed roads. The cheery lady at the counter quickly filled our order of soup and sandwiches---all of which proved to be very delicious. An ensemble of musicians playing string instruments serenaded us with lively folk tunes, from reels to laments, as we dined. Enjoyed browsing through the... More

It can be hard finding places that can accommodate gluten free dinning, especially when you have Celiac Disease. This place totally set the bar for awesome options! We ate here more than once while on our trip because the options were almost endless, and not what you can find most places. I had a BLT one day, and an egg... More

If you are visiting Munising and trying to eat local this is the place, service is great. Coffee is good,but could be better for the price that they charge.

Came with a group of about 100 people after a day at Pictured Rocks. Despite the large size of the group, we were each served with patience and grace! Shop is filled with UP treasures- many interesting books and gifts. Ice cream was wonderful, will definitely be back to try to food and coffee. This place is a great find!

We ate lunch here after backpacking at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. You order at a counter and seat yourself in a bookstore/gift shop, and they bring it to you when ready. You can browse the books on the shelves or look in the back at some locally crafted gifts while waiting for your food. My wife and I ordered soup... More

You order up on one side and then go over into the bookstore area, sort of, to sit down. Great coffee, medium and dark roasts seem to be the most popular, they have beans in the bag too for taking some home and you should. Sandwiches are very good and the ice cream is too. This is a very popular... More

Going off of other reviews from Trip Advisor, the wife and I stopped here for lunch and coffee as soon as we got into town on our October 2016 up north honeymoon. The place is unique and quaint. It’s like an old fashion sandwich shop meets small town library/book store. It was clean with very friendly staff. The deli sandwiches... More
