We love eating here. Everytime we are on Mackinac we eat breakfast here. We have never had a bad meal. It's nice seeing the same people working here every year. We can't wait until our next trip so we can eat here again!

We love this little spot. Breakfast was delicious & the service fast. The price was the best deal on the island. We met the owner, Sharon, and she was delightful. Nice, friendly atmosphere.
