“Surprisingly fresh, quality food”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

I expected this to be your typical diner style place--was I glad to be wrong! The sandwich was freshly made, with crispy vegetables and freshly cut avocado. The menu was to modern upscale tastes, with lots of fresh vegetables and flavor, not just deli meat and cheese (though that exists too). A very pleasant Northern Michigan surprise. Owners provide the service at this time of year and are friendly and prompt, service oriented.

“Absolutely Fabulous!!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We went here for breakfast and the Blueberry Stuffed French Toast was the best I have ever had. The Hopple Popple was delicous, great corned beef hash, and the Eggs Benedict was out of this world. The service was wonderful and friendly. We definately recommend you eat here.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 via mobile

Very small place, went because of reviews. Took a bit to get our order taken and served, but was told that the kitchen needed a chance to catch up. We were fine with that because we knew the food was going to be great. And it was. I had the country style eggs benedict. Oh dear... one of the best breakfast dishes I've had. I ate it at the counter while I watched an apple pie bake in front of me.
Don't go if you're impatient, in a hurry or with restless little kids. Go only if you have the time, inclination and desire for really good homemade food. My only regret is that we should have asked if we could buy the pie!

“Great little place for breakfast!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Stopped here before heading home from our night stay in Bellaire. It is a very cozy little diner run by a couple. Great breakfast made from scratch and good service. Will go here again!
