Two young men were working Sunday afternoon when we stopped for lunch. They were very personable. Brought our food out very quickly. We ate on the porch and the little touches of flowers and wheat-grass growing (for a drink they make) were very nice. Good food, great atmosphere and service.

Terrific salads for all tastes. Cobb salad is a must try. Sandwiches served with fresh fruit or pasta. Homemade cherry pies, muffins, cinnamon buns and lemon pound cake. Dine inside or on the patio.

Shrimp and avocado salad was perfection! The quiche is fantastic and the baked goods are made fresh and where fabulous. The owners were delightful and very accommodating. Wonderful place! Will definitely go back next time I'm in Michigan.

Stopped in for a simple lunch of soup and tea. Very clean and tidy. Good service and great food. Ended with a sweet lemon bar. All is well.

Great for lunch... To avoid plate envy, we both had the shrimp and avocado salad, beautiful and delicious. Bakery items were calling my name, especially the brownie, but I resisted. Service was fast and attentive. Definitely worth the visit and would recommend.

Food is excellent, owners are friendly. All food is prepared on site. Baked goods are so yummy. Fresh soups daily. Sitting on the deck in Alden on a summer day: it doesn't get any better!

Nice cafe to stop for a coffee and snack. Beautiful little garden with flowers that you can wander through. You can also walk down the road to Torch Lake

Alden is a sleepy hamlet on one of the world's most beautiful lakes. This restaurant is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a delicious lunch outdoors. I am a summer resident but enjoy seeing the same faces working here year after year. The food is really good, I especially love their tuna salad plate and soups. They also make... More

Good food. Love the ham and brie sandwich. Tall "sprinklers" delivering a constant mist keep the outdoor area comfortable even in the heat. Good people watching. Great waiter - Ely - was intelligent, helpful and provided great service. Very clean.
