DOWNTOWN DINING

The timeless appeal of Mackinac Island usually refers to horse-drawn carriage tours, tandem bicycle rides, Victorian architecture and historic Fort Mackinac. But let’s not forget classic comfort food! When you need a cup of coffee, have a craving for pizza or pancakes, or just want to join the locals for a burger and a beer, you’ll find it downtown – right in the middle of all the action and often with a stunning view. On Mackinac Island, some tastes never go out of style!
