This place is trying to cash in on the coffee/sandwich shop craze. Bread was not fresh. Meat is not to be ordered here. Stick to a salad or the almost stale baked goods.

Great lunch and breakfast food and pastries. The café is situated right next to the pavilion and in the winter time the ice rink is set up there so it is a great place to go warm up and get a hot drink. Try the cranberry granola cookies!

Even though we called at ten minutes to closing, they were very gracious about our last-minute take out order. It was ready when we arrived, and the woman at the counter was really nice. The food we ordered was fresh, wholesome and very tasty! I'm on a special diet, and it's rare to get something that fits my diet that... More

We went for breakfast, arrived around 9:45am on a Sunday. We had two breakfast sandwiches on croissants and they were very, very good! We also enjoyed a pastry that was delicious! It did take about 40 minutes to get our sandwiches, we ordered around 10 and our sandwiches came out around 10:40, but they were delicious. We enjoyed our coffee... More

Off the main road but great little place. Everything is very fresh and they offer a great selection. Love their soup and sandwich combos and their cookies are fabulous. Always take friends when we are in South Haven and have never been disappointed.
