Sysco slop doled out for gullible tourists. Service ranges from slow, to glacial to "did our waitress die?" There's a lot better options with a minute's ride into town.

These people know how to make a latte and a great breakfast, but it's the "experience" that is the best. Plan to have a good timea nd maybe a wait that is well worth it. It's our go-to breakfast place in St. Ignace.

Had breakfast there on June 26th. Service was very, very slow. Pancakes were scorched on the bottom and that taste was over powering, could not finish them. Stuffed French toast was ok but nothing great, we would not order it again. Servers pleasant as usual...More

We ate here a few years ago and went back twice on this trip. There is nothing boring about eating here and the food is very good. It's a very small place with little space for parking, but worth the trouble. I don't know if...More
