This is a favorite spot to eat breakfast every time I visit Saugatuck. The waiting line is long but worth the wait.

We went here for breakfast, all the locals suggested it. Had the pancakes, they were amazing. Service was great, never had to ask for anything. We got there early, it was a good thing because it really filled up fast.

It's a typical small town restaurant in many ways, very charming just because it is, not because they try to be. The food is fine, prices are ok, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Really a sweet little place.
