Breakfast is great but good price, friendly staff and people/families just enjoying breakfast. Only 2 such places in town but this one has a line waiting to get in. Stop into the adjacent gift shop or for my 45 minute wait I took a nice walk. Definitely not a hurry-up place.

We went here for breakfast and could not believe how huge the menu was. They have everything! Not a very big place so get there early! Parking is free on the street on Sundays.

First off, I want to say that our server was lovely. This review has nothing to do with her. I tipped her according to her service, not our meal. This restaurant has been a staple when traveling to the Traverse City area for years. Always my favorite for breakfast or brunch! I was recently on a color tour with my... More

Really good breakfast and good menu choices - very busy though, plan to wait if you're not there early. Not the best service at our visit, but might have been our particular waitstaff.

We ate here on our trip to Traverse City. The place was very busy on a Thursday morning and has the feel of a diner. Our breakfast was very good. I had an omelette that had feta cheese, veggies and turkey sausage. In our party of four everyone liked their meals. The raisin bread and sourdough breads were excellent. The... More

Breakfast was great. I bought a loaf of cherry bread to bring back to Indiana. I just got home to unwrap my bread and quessvwhat , it's raisin. We don't like raisin. I paid 13$ for the loaf of bread and they didn't even check to make sure they gave me the correct type of bread before packaging it up.... More

I really enjoyed my breakfast, here. I got the Leelanau Scrambler. What an unique and flavorful egg preparation. (Eggs, spinach, mushrooms, scallions, tomatoes with parmesan cheese) Pleasant suprise was the include choice of toast. I got the Cherry almond toast. Came with icing drizzled on top. I would not hesitate to go back. (Be prepared to wait, especially on a... More
