Stopped in last weekend during an annual trip to the area. Owner/Server was incredibly RUDE!! Downright nasty! Would have ordered full breakfast but felt so unwelcome. Don't waste your time on this cheeky cafe....there are plenty of lovely restaurants in the area that welcome and gladly accept your patronage.

Stopped here for breakfast on our way out of Suttons Bay. We had visited a few years ago and decided to try it again. It is still great. The omelettes and quite good and are prepared "moon faced" which do not look like the typical omelette. Seems to be popular with the locals. Will return again.

Great pancakes, waffles, and other griddle stuff. Huuuuge portions, so don't be afraid to get half-orders. Omelettes, egg sandwiches also very good. I'm sure lunch is good too but I only ever order breakfast. Everything you could want in a breakfast place. Gets very busy during summer tourist season, which creates 2 problems: long waits, esp on weekends, and seasonal... More

We opted for this place on a Monday in March when several others were closed but we had a great experience! The staff was friendly and helpful, the portions were huge and delicious. Perfectly cooked eggs for the husband and a yummy ham and cheese croissant sandwich for me that had great flavor. Heads up, the specialty coffees can be... More

Friendly people and great breakfast offerings. Had delightful Mexican egg dish with good flavors. Spouse had a delicious omelette with ample fillings. Coffee was good. Bustling little place that I would go back to often.

T'was the morning before Christmas in 2016 and the Mrs. and I were in beautiful Suttons Bay and decided to drop into a local quaint cafe for brunch. That's when everything charming and lovely stayed outside where it was safe. My wife has a limited diet, so it's always good to find a Non-Spicy, Non-Cheese drenched entree. The "Crazy Good... More

Stopped at noon on Wednesday and it was quite busy. Had a morel mushroom omelette and biscuits and gravy. Both very good. Service was slow, but very small kitchen, so be patient. Will be back.

They do some great things with eggs! My spinach omelette (sans cheese) was good, and my husband's eggs with black beans was terrific. That's what I'll be ordering next time!

We ate breakfast here every day of our stay in Suttons Bay. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection with one of the best waiters anywhere. I'm so glad we stumbled upon it our first morning on a bike ride. Eat here. You will not be disappointed.
