I had a special corned beef dish that was great. Perfect crispy with grilled tomato and cheese on top. My wife had Ho Cakes which were Vert tasty. Gotta love Harbor Cafe.

Be prepared to wait in line for an old-fashioned, 2-egg over easy breakfast with unlimited coffee. Small, but friendly. Old-fashioned, 1950's style breakfasts served with the Elk Rapids charm of yesteryear. Go! Bucklist for Elk Rapids!!!

It took us 3 tries (it's a little place and fills up fast!) But it was well worth the effort. Their breakfast is to die for! Cinnamon swirl pancakes and omelettes were our favorites.

They were very busy but super friendly. My hashbrown breakfast bowl was yummy. The blueberry French toast was amazing. You could easily split it.
