This is a must place for a coffee and pie! Their seating area is limited! But is just great to grab a cup of coffee + a slice of apple pie topped with ice cream and chat with a friend!

Great soups and sandwiches. The best fruit pies and strudels. Low key atmosphere with comfortable seating. Friendly, efficient service.

What a cozy place to enjoy a simple meal. Homemade tasty bakery items, sandwiches, soup, salad, etc. The Johnny Applefreeze (apple cider slush) is sooo good!

The Reuben Sandwich was absolutely amazing! Great salad in an appropriate size. The cold cider was amazing. And, the pie.......oh my! Chocolate pecan pie and the pumpkin pie was great!

Ok the timing was just right as the special for the day was a turkey, walnut, blue cheese roll up that left you wanting more although the size was plenty enough for two. Have to have the apple cider either regular or served as a slushy to quench your thirst. Now to finish you need to explore the delectable desserts... More

Frozen pies, fresh pies, frozen apple cider to take home and the best fresh donuts to go with apple cider. Their other menu items are okay. Sandwiches and soup, you can find anywhere. But the treasure is their baked goods and cider.

this is a branch of the Fennville operation, and if you cannot get to the mother ship, do go here while in Holland. Take home a pie or two, fresh or frozen, you will not regret it.

Visited for the first time a year ago and loved it. Today we drove into Holland just to go to Crane's because we were nearby. They did not disappoint!

This downtown eatery is an extension of the original Cranes Orchard and Pie Pantry in Fennville. The downtown location offers soups, sandwiches and delectable desserts! They also offer something the Fennville location does not, soda! If you're looking for a cozy, local eatery with delicious food, Cranes in the City is your place!
