This is a little gem. The food is excellent but make sure you’re hungry because the servings are very generous! Be sure to save some room for the home baked desserts. Warm welcoming staff adds to the delightful experience.

We had read reviews about these apple fritters so had to stop and try them. Turns out they were even better than we expected (and one of us doesn't even like apple fritters). They are gigantic (at least as big as a softball) and instead...of having random hunks of apple throughout the dough, there is a tasty little crater of gooey apple filling at the very center. Prepare to hose yourself off after eating one, but totally worth the mess. Only weird thing was, by the time we arrived one morning we were told they only had six-packs left. Since we were travelling by motorcycle, we only wanted two but they refused to split the six-pack, even though they then repackaged the six into bags of two for easier transportation. Strange! We ate two on the spot, gave away two to another couple in the parking lot, and had the last two for breakfast the next morning and they tasted just as good the day after.More

Normally like this place, food is good, lady at counter extremely rude. Yelled at us where to stand, yelled at people trying to come inside when there were already two people inside (you don't know unless you check). Desserts are known for being huge, so...I got a box of six. She actively grabbed the small pieces which are essentially the big pieces cut in half. So I really got four for the price of six. Didn't notice til i got home and opened them. When we were leaving a group of people were walking away saying "well that was disappointing". I have to agree it was this time. Lady at counter needs to be a little more appreciative of her customers and less snappy.More

My wife and I happened upon this little gem of a bakery on our way to our cottage rental. We started with a pie and some squares - delicious! A couple days later, we were told by a regular island visitor that the apple fritters...are to die for, but sell out quickly so get your order in when they open at 6:00 a.m. We called ahead, placed our order, and were not disappointed with the fritters. In fact, they were the best apple fritters either of us have ever had. One fritter easily fed both of us, they are huge. We also bought another pie and squares. Everything was sooo fresh and tasty!More

Picked up some baked goods and they were just way too good! Great service as well. I recommend their apple fritter type donuts, peanut butter squares and their brownies (pictured)

My husband, our little son, and I came back to Manitoulin Island after falling in love with the place last summer. We loved the homey, tasty diner food we got from Mum’s last year but, as so often happens, we didn’t get there early enough...to snag any of their famous apple fritters. This year, we went there for breakfast around 8:30am discovered that, due to COVID, they were only doing takeout, and instead had a lovely outdoor picnic breakfast at nearby Lake Mindemoya. The baked goods were massive, the apple fritters were bigger than my hand and chock full of apples, and the lemon cranberry muffins were delicious.More

The apple fritters did NOT disappoint! They were huge, warm and delectable. We bought one and ate it when we got to the top point of the Cup and Saucer hike. What a delight! The peanut butter cookies were good too! They have more baking...that we didn't get a chance to try because we bought the apple fritters 3 times in less than a week.More

I'd guess that there are peanuts on the premises. I had a chocolate peanut butter cake--so, it's likely this would be a problem.
