There is a location in Suttons Bay and in Traverse City. If you are particular about your coffee, this place is certain to please. The cinnamon croissant is a personal fav.

AMAZING coffee, bright, bold flavors in their food. This spot is new to the TC scene and already packing a punch. Check out their insta for the latest offerings, but DO NOT MISS their savory pastries.

Everything is delicious, but especially fond of their burgers (both grassfed beef and veg) and their mac & cheese is swoon worthy. So many beers on tap AND it's attached to a year-round curling club.

You can walk here from the cottage. There's a neon palm tree outside. You know you want to go.

AMAZING food, beer, and wine. This charming spot is the perfect place for a date night and during the day the kids can run around the property. Farm Club also carries a ton of locally made products if you're looking for the perfect token to bring home.

I've been visiting Tandem for over a decade. Their ciders are first class and it's right up the road from my favorite bakery...9Bean.

These are some of the best laminated pastries in America. Bold statement, but true. My personal favorite is the apricot pinwheel where a half apricot sits on top of patisserie cream. If you're a savory pastry type of person, you can't go wrong with their spinach and feta croissant. They do pizza and sandwiches during lunch and you won't find a better cherry pie on the peninsula. This place has a cult following for a reason. Secret tip: Fresh Coast Market (on the way to Traverse City) carries their pastries and bread daily.

Sightseeing

Go at sunset and build a fire. My local tip is that Bohemian Beach right next door is even more idyllic.
