Trip Advisor states that the restaurant is in New Buffalo. It is actually in Harbert, a few miles north of New Buffalo. Especially popular for breakfast, fairly wide variety of choices incuding most traditional meals. Some Scandinavian specials.

We stopped in here for breakfast the day after the ACC cycling event ahead of the drive back to Chicago. The food was tasty and fresh, backed by friendly service. The place was packed, confirmation of its popularity with visitors and locals alike.

We've seen the rave reviews, but we live 56 miles away. But we made the trek today, and it was worth it. A cut above even the best breakfast places we've been to. Some places have good feature items accompanied by ordinary toast, juice, butter,...More
