For about $10 each of us selected a seafood dish that was tasty. Afterward we shopped at Anna's and our guest Ben, found a gem of a picture of Lime Lake near Traverse City, where his grandma lives.

Limited menu. This is attached to the gift shop and caters to lunch or brunch. Crowded seating. Good spot if you want to combine shopping and lunch.

Stopped in for unique, local gifts and decided to have lunch. Great gift ideas and lunch was very good. Smaller venue with nice menu considering. Not an everyday place but if you are looking for local gifts and get hungry, it is recommended

This is a great place to catch up with friends. I am addicted to the hot crab sandwich with Italian tomato soup. The service is great and there are many delicious choices on the menu.
