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.

Tripadviser led us to this restaurant for lunch after visiting the Holland Windmill.

My daughter and I split the Cristo sandwich, thinking we could order pie for dessert. The sandwich was one of the best meals we had on our Michigan road trip. We loved the crisp apples in the sandwich. The bread is lightly crusted, so it isn't too sweet.

My husband had a Reuben sandwich that was also exceptional.

We sat outside the restaurant and enjoyed the comings and goings of the summer tourists.

We were all too full to have a piece of Cherry pie. We had been having ice cream every day, so we decided to skip dessert. In hindsight, we should have had pie and skipped the mediocre dinner in Grand Haven.

Stopped in for dessert and coffee close to closing time. Two young ladies who were working were very friendly and welcoming. Gave us recommendations and apple cider donut chip samples even though it was late. Decaf coffee was best I have had. Raspberry pie was scrumptious - flaky crust and full of fruit. Apple cider donut chips are a unique treat. Can't beat the phenomenal service with warm smiles even when we left at closing time.
