Love the homey feel and delicious food. The chili is perfect! A great place to stop for lunch while walking around downtown. When we went it was fairly busy but we still got a table for four without really having to wait.

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!
