If you looooove bacon, Idle Hour will be your favorite bacon stop! Breakfast is served fast, eggs are always hot, Joe and Steve, the cooks have been working here for years! Consistently good, hot, fresh and served with a smile!

We enjoyed lunch here twice in the last couple of weeks. Service and food were great! We really loved the Grilled Cheese and Tomato soup offered at one of our visits, and loved the Slim Jim sandwich another time.

Excellent food, wonderful service, and just plain good! If you miss this local favorite then you have missed the best of Spring Lake MI. While in the area we visited every chance we get most of the time our planes revolve around this breakfast treat!...More

My husband and I went here on a whim. Their breakfast was reasonable and really tasty. It must be a hot spot for the locals because it looked like there were a lot of them. Friendly staff and great food, I'll be back!
