We were able to sit outside and have lunch overlooking the water. Menu is somewhat limited, but everything we had was good, except for the smoothies - my kids wouldn't drink them. A little pricey. Staff were very friendly. Located in Big Cedar Lodge.

Take time to grab a delicious pastry and drink and head out on the stone patio to enjoy the view. Breakfast sandwiches are very good, too.

Super cute, tiny spot. It was really cold in the morning so we drove to the café from our room and ordered coffee. The service was fast and the café was clean. The employees were very friendly and professional. Prices are what you would expect.

A great little place on property for a snack or a great cup of coffee. The staff is great and the outside sitting area has a great view of the cove. We just live to sit back read and enjoy the moment.

On a weeklong trip to Big Cedar, we must've visited Truman's at least 3 times! Great coffee, cookies, quiche, danish and prices. We particularly enjoy the stained glass windows and the outdoor tables when it's good weather.
