Friendly people and great breakfast offerings. Had delightful Mexican egg dish with good flavors. Spouse had a delicious omelette with ample fillings. Coffee was good. Bustling little place that I would go back to often.

T'was the morning before Christmas in 2016 and the Mrs. and I were in beautiful Suttons Bay and decided to drop into a local quaint cafe for brunch.

Stopped at noon on Wednesday and it was quite busy. Had a morel mushroom omelette and biscuits and gravy. Both very good. Service was slow, but very small kitchen, so be patient. Will be back.

They do some great things with eggs! My spinach omelette (sans cheese) was good, and my husband's eggs with black beans was terrific. That's what I'll be ordering next time!

We ate breakfast here every day of our stay in Suttons Bay. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection with one of the best waiters anywhere. I'm so glad we stumbled upon it our first morning on a bike ride. Eat here. You will not be disappointed.

We ordered the chicken salad croissant and I had the huevos rancheros. The pumpkin pancake is fantastic. Owner and staff are very friendly. I would recommend this to everyone.

Went there with my three brothers for breakfast the morning before one of their wedding ceremony. The food is tasty and the portions are mildly generous. The staff is friendly. The restaurant is family friendly. All in all, a nice place to grab a bite to eat while in Suttons Bay.

We visited the 45th twice during our week visit. Love the cinnamon raisin toast! The coffee is always fresh and your cup never goes empty waiting for a refill. Do your stomach a favor and give the 45th a try!

Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast here. The food was great, but the service was not. The waiters seemed to be annoyed with little requests and flustered most of the time.
