Much better than Panera Bread! Great place for lunch with casual,comfortable atmosphere. Several soups and chili, creamy vegetable soup had an abundance of vegetables! Veggie Flip with garlic humus ,spinach, peppers, cucumbers,carrots plus roasted mushrooms on flatbread was tasty and generous (accompanied with kettle chips and a dill pickle spear). Also tried the Backwoods burger with Provolone melted over grilled... More

This is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. Always friendly service, and fantastically fresh foods. The prices are a bit higher because their standards, quality and food sources are the best they can do to bring in local products, fair trade products, and help others shine. Their gifts are delightful and feature many local artists, but you can still... More

They have good food but are way over priced! You get a small portion of food for a lot of money. They have always been over priced.

Great coffee - good vibe...I will go back there! It is close to everything in Interlochen. I know one man we met there who calls Bud's his "mobile office".

They didn't have very many people inside for a Sat night. Now we know why, my husband's hamburg was the worst one he has ever had! We waited over 15 mins for a bad hamburg and a dry chicken Caesar wrap. We were shocked they don't have french fries or onion rings either just tasteless chips.

Atmosphere is cute, awesome decor. Staff was far from friendly or welcoming. Menu is super limited for breakfast which is a bummer. Eggs were disgusting, very slimy and tasted funky. Expensive for portions also, no options for sides.

Bud's is nearby, but we don't go enough. The sandwiches were great. The ice cream was delicious and we wandered around the store looking at the pictures and all the cute items for sale. It's always a treat.

Visited again this year after my son's concert. This year we stopped with the whole family on our way home. My wife and I had burgers, which were very tasty. My son and daughter had sandwiches, which they both said were very good numerous times. I can see why Bud's has the #1 rating in Interlochen, it's well deserved.

Whenever I am visiting the Interlochen area, Bud's is always one of the first places we visit for delicious, quality food. We have been here for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between. The preparation and quality of the food is excellent. The staff is always friendly. The gift shop area always has neat items of interest. I highly recommend... More
