Love the "Jacksonchino" coffee drink. Cold pastas, sandwiches and salads are unique and delicious. Nice atmosphere and outdoor seating available.

Always stop when in town for lunch. Pick something different every time and never disappointed. Don't forget to add a second or cookie!

I contacted the restaurant to find out what food options were available for gluten free customers. After talking to the owner I was met with extreme hostility. I ended the conversation by hanging up the phone and decided to not attend our appreciation meal. The owner took it upon herself to drive over to my place of employment and insist... More

Our large group ordered a variety of sandwiches and soups. My quinoa salad was flawless and tasty. The young woman who took our order didn't get all the details exactly correct, but most members of the group didn't care. The kids liked their chicken dumpling soup, and adults liked their diverse sandwich menu and strong coffee. Great find in the... More

I consider myself to be a bit of a coffee shop snob after years of working as a barista, and I love this place! They have great drinks and an extensive menu. I wish that they had more vegetarian options, but this is the U.P. after all. The matcha green tea smoothie is deelish.

Iced tea watered down & no flavor. I always order chicken dumpling soup when offered but can't say I cared for their version, too salty & some weird spice in it. Panini was ok.

Moose Jackson has great service and a nice selection of sandwiches, salads, soups, and desserts. Also has bagged fresh ground coffee and coffee beans to take home to brew.

This is a decent place. They have made their name with flavored drink offerings, deli food, etc. Food is OK, prices are decent. Large open dining area with large and small tables. Nice place to bring a laptop/tablet and hang out. One interesting statistic...at every visit the ratio of female to male is at least 15:1. Not sure why... :-)

This is a great little place for a nice, quiet get together. The atmosphere here is relaxing and quiet, the food very good, and the staff friendly and helpful. They don't have a very extensive menu, mostly sandwiches and salads, along with a bakery section. It's a good place for a nice hot cup of coffee, or a latte. The... More
