My 17 year old son and I had the good fortune to eat here after visiting Hope College together. What a great meal we had. From the delicious bread and butter to the scrumptious pork chops and lamb shank meals (with delicious sides of mashed potatoes and root vegetables) we ordered, we both loved the food. Great flavors, seasoning, presentation... More

Surprisingly good restaurant in the village of Douglas. A first visit for the 4 of us. Comparable to local favorites Salt of the Earth in Fennville, and Butch's in Holland

The menu is amazing, the service is unparalleled. Who know this great little place was tucked into a corner of Douglas, MI? You will not regret dinner here.

Expect a small wait, but nice bar area and attentive staff. The food here is exceptional. Servers are attentive and this place pulls in a lot of locals, so busy year round. The trout is spectacular as is the filet. Many appetizers to choose from but try the Drunken Shrimp. Crusty crazy good!

We were staying with 2 other couples this past weekend. I called and they accepted a call ahead reservation for 6 or more. They sat us immediately when we arrived, which was great since all tables were full. Our server Michael was the best and the food was the same. I had read a few mixed reviews and I didn't... More

This weekend was our first get-away to Saugatuck/Douglas, MI, and several friends with very good taste recommended Everyday People to us for our anniversary dinner last night. We were not disappointed! A contemporary cafe with exceptional, professional wait staff and decent background music (Cold Play to Jack Johnson to James Taylor), the kitchen staff delivered a memorable meal! We shared...

Got a table right away. Nice atmosphere, but a bit chilly every time someone came in the front door, as we were seated near there. Server gave us additional time to look over the menu but didn't return for quite some time. Once we ordered, the meals came in a timely manner and the server checked back on us. The... More

We haven't been here for a while, but my wife and I really liked the breakfast here when we stayed in nearby Saugatuck. There had been a major Halloween party in Douglas the night before, and the other customers had obviously had a good time the night before - which made for an entertaining brunch. Good food, friendly service, but... More

My girlfriends and I had brunch at Everyday People yesterday. The food was excellent and our server, Michael was great! He made sure we had everything we needed and was very attentive (and kept our Champagne Flutes full.) Everyday People Cafe never disappoints! Thanks Michael and EPC!!!
