A nice short drive into the heart of the island from town. Right across from the municipal airport. Fun place. Great coffee and good breakfast. Super nice young people working there. 6 of us adults all enjoyed it. Worth the short scenic drive for breakfast or lunch.

We arrived on Beaver Island with our bikes for a trek around the island. We'd researched restaurant locations and were delighted to find this little gem right on our route. We entered to find 3 or 4 tables of seated customers, both locals and tourists, but we opted to sit in the well-worn Adirondack chairs on the deck outside. As we walked through, we noticed a customer enjoying a big dish of strawberry shortcake. We ended up ordering 2 caramel lattes and 2 strawberry shortcake! My daughter couldn't get enough of the place and compared it to her very favorite coffee shop in Homer, Alaska. Right outside the door of this tiny shop they have umbrella tables, a swing-set, and a corn-hole game for all to enjoy. I can't say it was inexpensive, but the atmosphere and the location are soooooo worth it!

We went for the pizza on Friday night. The people could not have been nicer and friendlier. Even though they were very busy, the service was prompt. We enjoyed the pizza very much. The only criticism was the mushrooms were canned not fresh. We would go back.

Our group of 4 walked in and order 4 drinks. The 5 people working there were very friendly but were tripping over each other and not communicating to us or each other what was going on. Do not order a "specialty drink" that isn't listed. You will watch them go into a frenzy trying to figure out what to do.

Good home cooking here. Great, large breakfasts with good food. Try their mocha coffees...yum! Good place to talk to Beaver Islanders as it is very small so everybody is friendly...staff and customers.
