Cute little cozy bookstore. Nice ambiance. Didn't have much time to browse because we went downstairs to see a guest speaker, but from what I could see, it was clean and organized.

Awesome cake ... We were staying at Boyne resort and I needed cake for my wife's birthday .. looked up on yelp and found this place.. The cake was really amazing and everyone loved it. If you're in the area you should check out this place.
The most delicious pies north of the 45th parallel.
In a world filled with franchises and pre-prepared goods, Johan's was a delectable experience. My husband's cinnamon roll was almost as big as his head and moist. My raspberry Danish was so sweet I could not finish it (rare happening). Stop at Johan's now!

This amazing ! While visiting Potoskey we look for a nice place that would be more of a healthy option. When we arrived we found a small but popping restaurant. When you enter go all the way to the back to order, and when you see a free table, grab it while you can. The food was amazing and so reasonably priced. They offered a half sandwhich (that seemed more like a whole one) and a cup of soup under $10. I recommend the tomato basil soup it was the best I have ever had. Higley recommend this place, stop looking and go!
Excellent choice for lunch! I couldn't get enough of this place and visited them twice during my stay in Harbor Springs. Fast, fresh and friendly service. The soups are homemade and offer a variety of fun sandwiches.
If you're looking for a place with creative and fresh tasting sandwiches this is the place. The bread is fresh and delicious and the sun dried tomato additions are great. My husband had the California club with sun dried tomatoes and was deeply impressed - he's hard to please! I had the Gotta Try This and I liked the sun dried tomato mayo addition.

Wow, Hamtramck has nothing on this place! First off, we were blown away by the customer service. I called at 6:40 to see what time they closed (7:00pm). I got their voice mail stating their hours, hung up, and said to my husband, "Well I guess we're eating there tomorrow night instead." About 5 minutes later I received a call back from them. The man said he saw he had a missed call. I told him that I was calling for their hours, heard that they close in a few minutes, and will come in the next day for dinner. He said, "Oh you can come in now. We just had a large party put their order in for dinner so we'll be here for a while." My husband and I walked in a 7:05 and were greeted by this same friendly person. My husband and I each had the polish sampler--pierogies, kielbasa, and stuffed cabbage. Oh my goodness, it was delicious! It's the best Polish food I've ever had. We finished with crepes for dessert. Again, delicious! We got a raspberry one and a cream cheese one. A little bit of each together was heavenly. The decor doesn't scream "fine dining" but their food is awesome. I just wished we lived closer so I could bring some of their frozen pierogies home with us. I'm afraid they wouldn't make it.
Great customer service and great food! We had the dog so we sat outside. They brought out a water dish and we enjoyed the beautiful day with the lake in the distance. We all really liked the food. I had the Kielbasa on a Ciabatta bun. Definately get the super hot mustard! It's not that hot and it was delicious. See the photo I posted. Great perogies too. Food was so good I thought I was back home on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago.
Loved the food and the service was great; Must try the pierogi sampler.

So happy to find this delicious bakery in Petoskey / Harbor Springs! A friend brought a loaf of Pepper Parmesan bread to a dinner party. It was fabulous! So fabulous, in fact, that we drove there the next day to see what other delicious things we could try. We decided to buy scones for breakfast the next morning - we tried cheddar scallion (based on yelp reviews) and mixed berry. The cheddar scallion were super yummy - although they were more like a biscuit to me, nice and moist and buttery and delightful. We will definitely be back on our next trip up north to try more delicious treats and without a doubt I will be picking up another loaf of Pepper Parmesan!
The bread is amazing especially the Parmesan Pepper! The green onion and cheddar scones and lavender cookies are also fabulous...I don't think you'll be disappointed with any choice. Too bad there's a lot of attitude coming from the older lady with short hair behind the counter.
I want to give 5 stars, but I think that would be kind of unfair. I have never been to Crooked Tree, but I have eaten POUNDS of their Addictive Granola. Honestly, it is the best snack in the Universe. Seriously. I have to get it online, but it is so worth it. Local cherries, honey, and maple syrup. Yuuuummmm. Some day, I'll make it to the actual bakery, and then I hope to bestow 5 stars. Until then, I'll be in the corner with my face in a tub of granola.

Eco Smoothie Cafe

Reviews:
I really love this place. They use fresh fruit only - no syrups or fillers like most smoothie places. Pure coconut milk, lots of options and reasonably priced. The 2 stars is because the guy used his bare, money-handlling, then phone-handling hands to grab fresh spinach for my smoothie. Please wash hands and have handler gloves! I didn't say anything because there was a line and I didn't want to cause a ruckus.
We were visiting Petoskey to walk around and noticed Eco Smoothie. We went inside and they had great tasting, healthy smoothies! I would definitely recommend it to friends. It's definitely worth checking it out. Prices are reasonable.
This place rocks. The owner is super cool and recommended a really good smoothie. He knows his stuff and is willing to help you out if you're like me and new in town. I only wish I lived in Petoskey so that I could grab a smoothie from here more often. Can't wait to try all the other stuff.

Freshwater Grill

Reviews:
The name is horrifically misleading. Nothing is grilled and there isn't much that is "fresh" about his place. Decent fried fish, but the place reeks of fry oil. I had the perch, cod and whitefish basket. Perch was awful, the cod was good (albeit greasy) and the whitefish was meh. Hushpuppies were fried beyond recognition. Staff was friendly, but if your specialty is fried food, you better hit a home run. Unfortunately, this place is far from it. Try your luck elsewhere in the area.
This place far from disappointed. Friendly staff and very good food. Had the whitefish basket which included 2 big pieces of fish plus coleslaw, hush puppies and fries.
We typically stop when we are in town and some years it's better than others. Fish was fine, tartar sauce was good. Coleslaw a little runny. Pretty expensive for what it is. Water and ice had something in it. We were told to buy bottled or drink at our own risk...

Greek/Mediterranean pop! Oh yeah. Yep, this place is good! I was waiting for my order one day and the owner says to the guy next to me "Thank you for letting us feed your family today!" I just thought that was so sweet. This place is a lot of fun, so much going on. I always get the veggie gyro and fries (their fries are so perfectly salty... I hate when I have to add salt) but next time I am going for the garlic hummus and whatever else. All good here. When I order to go it never makes it out of the parking lot! Speaking of parking, a little tight cuz this place is busy!
As a lifelong Detroiter, I'm skeptical of Greek food away from home. But we took a chance on this place and it was really good. As a family, we shared a gyros, some hummus, a salad and the Greek nachos. All were solid. But the surprise of the night was the perch. We each tried a few pieces and it was as good as we have ever had Up North. It's a nice atmosphere and a nice break from the typical bar food in the area. We'll be back.
The workers are enthusiastic and for that I'll give them 4 stars, but I am sorry, these are the worst gyros I have ever ate and this is after 3 or 4 trips. Seriously, everyone raving about the gyros, haven't you seen the meat whacked off of the big rotating meat roll from real Greek food restaurants in the metro areas? That's real gyro, not some meat fried on a grill until one side is crusty and dry. The spinach pie is some sort of dough encrusted creation, not thin filo dough layered lightly like the real thing. I get it, people are all chill, being in a beautiful area on vacation and having family around eating a dinner out, but this place is not the real deal. Now I have had the perch fry on Friday and it was okay, but even then on a Friday the whole area has a fish fry, and most are better then Mims.

Cormack's Deli is my favorite deli in NW Michigan - if this place was in San Antonio I would eat here every week! Every sandwich I've had was great, the portion sizes are huge and the prices are reasonable. The deserts are fabulous, the quiche and the potato salad are good, the staff is friendly and the view of Lake Michigan is great. The only drawback is they're closed on the weekends. I highly recommend this place!
Great sandwiches and deli items. Cabbage roll is good. Can't go wrong with a turkey sandwich. A guy here said Nates Mitch is the best, but I haven't tried it yet. Nice views of the lake. Can get pretty busy in the summer.
AMAZING I am a very tiny person 90% of the time I don't finish all my food. I'm the annoying girl asking for a box with half my food still on my plate. The sandwiches here are so fantastic that I will keep on chowing down even when my stomach is telling me to stop. The Long Island is amazing. The bread is so perfect if you have never ate a sandwich with warm bread you are missing out. If I lived closer I'd be here everyday.
