Love the homey feel and delicious food. The chili is perfect! A great place to stop for lunch while walking around downtown. When we went it was fairly busy but we still got a table for four without really having to wait.

We always make a point of going to Crane's when we vacation in Holland (second time this week!). The City Cristo sandwich is fabulous! And you can't pass up the home made pie for dessert!

Don't miss these pies, and get a glass of apple cider. Lunch is nice, but dessert is better! It has a homey, country feel and is reasonably priced.

Just stopped by for dessert. It was extremely hard to make up my mind about which pie to choose, so I chose one to have there and one to take home.

This restaurant opened July, 2010 in the downtown area. Everything is homemade with local ingredients; desserts made with Michigan fruit. Wonderful!
