This was a great place for specialty coffee and super baked goods. A super morning spot to start your day. It will be missed. My review shows Nov. 2015, but it was earlier due to they always closed after the season.

I was so disappointed that Trick Dog was not opened this summer 2015. I tell everyone that is going to Frankfort to make sure to visit. Good food, fun art and a lovely large front porch to relax and have a coffee. Please open again....More

Check the days of operation, because I think they are only open a few days of the week, maybe Thursday through Sunday. We enjoy their gift shop, and they do serve smoothies, etc. which can be enjoyed on their porch overlooking Betsie Bay and Frankfort.

This is one of my favorite stops in northern Michigan. Cool stuff inside, but the gallery/cafe exterior is also landscaped with art pieces I like even better than the ones inside. Best place in northern Michigan for porch sitting, latte sipping, and inhaling views of...More
