Well I’ve never had a pasty before so I don’t have anything to compare this to, but it was good! We tried the beef and chicken. I did think the beef inside the beef pasty was a little chewy, and I think I preferred the...More

Wanted to try a pastie in UP so this was the spot based on reviews. Neat and clean but not to fancy! Pasties were fresh, hot, and tasty. Staff was friendly.

Price for one pastie was $6.95 which seemed high for the quality. Not very much meat and very few if any onions. Mostly potato and finely shredded carrots. The crust was dry and did not have much flavor. Disappointed in the overall quality for the...More

This was a pick-up meal for us. It was served quickly and service was pleasant. The eating area was ample but we wanted to be outdoors to enjoy the weather. The pastie was tasty but the crust was too thick.

Quaint, friendly and tasty. Not fine dining, so leave pretense in your car. Worth the stop. Beef with gravy and coleslaw. Quick dining excellence.
