And downtown Muskegon is a thoughtful tourist's dream, with fine historic architecture, and an old fashioned town square with a monument to the Grand Army of the Republic and leaders of the Union during the Civil War. This coffee shop is also close to the... More

There is a nice variety of treats to choose from and they vary time-to-time depending on what the students are learning. Service has been very good every time I have been there.

This place is perfect! The desserts are just the right size! The price was excellent at only $2.50 each. The iced coffee was delicious as well. Definitely recommended!

We have stopped in here several times for coffee and sweets and always enjoyed it. There fresh made deserts are excellent. If your in the downtown area stop and give it a try.

I bought a bunch of pretty pastries for a luncheon, looked good, but they had no taste. No sugar, no flavor. The chocolates were excellent and the coffee was decent.

Great smoothies, polite service from the students & their teachers, so just be prepared to be amazed. Jelly-roll with a light filling is perfect as an afternoon treat with a fresh cup of coffee. The prices are excellent, especially for... More
