If you eat at one place in South Haven, this should be it. Popular with locals and tourists alike. Carrot Cake muffin is sublime.

Upscale sandwich shop and bakery. Chalkboard menu above the counter. Lots of sandwich and side selections. Recommend the vegetarian sandwich and the coffee. Wish I could have stayed for dessert too. Next time!
