This is a great place to come have coffee with a friend! The cookies are just wonderful! They are a bit pricey, but the quality is spot on.

Off the main road but great little place. Everything is very fresh and they offer a great selection. Love their soup and sandwich combos and their cookies are fabulous. Always take friends when we are in South Haven and have never been disappointed.

If you are accustomed to Starbucks prices, then bring a couple more dollars and enjoy your breakfast sandwich or danish etc. Yummy coffee and food, good location near the library, not on the main drag so not so busy

I really like this place and my wife did too. Her Fiesta wrap and my Italian were very good. The pesto and salami were a lovely combination. Like a better quality Panerai bread with better flavor.

I'm sure if you contact the manager to make arrangements they might be able to assist. It depends on the time of year that you go. Cute little cafe.

They have an outdoor eating porch but I am not sure they allow dogs. I don't know of any restaurant in South Haven that has an area for dogs.
