We waited for the reservation, waited for the table, waited for the underwhelming food (my daughter got sick from the seafood pasta), waited for the check and then waited another 25 minutes for the waiter to return to take payment. NOT a family friendly atmosphere.

Coming to the area looking at houses, we were told to visit "Everyday People Cafe", so we did! Very cool old building, the decor following along with it. Bright and cheerful dinning room with a peak-a-boo view of the water. Service was friendly and efficient. Plenty of smiling faces make the visit that much more enjoyable. The menu has small... More

Just close your eyes and point to anything and eat it and be amazed. We ate the left side of the menu and everything was awesome. Great service and happy patrons.

Between Wild Dog Grille, across the street, and Everyday People Cafe, you cannot go wrong for great places to eat in Douglas. The staff is very informative and friendly. The restaurant is bright and airy. The menu changes with the season. The steak was cooked to perfection and came with creamy mashed potatoes and broccoli that was perfectly seared. The... More

We make every attempt to get to this restaurant when we spend our summers in Michigan. Great "clean" food and friendly wait staff. Although the restaurant is bigger than it seems, it is good to get there near opening time of 5:30 as it fills up fast. Although the menu is not lengthy, the choices will fit everybody's desires.

They can't expand anymore, so if you want to get in be at the door for dinner at 5:30 and you stand a good chance of getting in line which goes around the block at 5:30 when they open for dinner. If you have to wait, WAIT! It's worth it. You can eat at the bar if you want, the... More

Came early on a Sunday with friends primarily for the bottomless bubbles (mimosas)!! Regular price for a single is $8 so bottomless makes more sense if you're having more than one. You have to get the bottomless price with an entree... However the choices are very limited. I'm not a huge breakfast person, so was disappointed with their "lunch" options.... More

I have finally had enough with Saugatuck proprietors recommending this absolute yawn of a restaurant in Douglas to all us "tourists". This appears to be one of those places everybody wants to get into only because everybody wants to get into it. It is uncomfortable, overpriced, overcrowded and noisy. I wish I could say at least that the food made... More

I had previously lived in western MI for 17 years and in all my time there I never found food more expertly prepared as by the Everyday People Cafe. On a recent trip back after 3 years living in PA I was happy to see that they have maintained there high standards. Our food there was not only eye pleasing... More

This is an awesome restaurant. The food is over the top delicious and made to order. I have a mushroom allergy and they took it seriously. I brought a friend this past weekend who has more food issues that you can imagine and they treated her respectfully and cooked her food to perfection for her. Everything we had was incredible....
