Brewery

“Our favorite beer in the area! Greenbush has revitalized Sawyer. Have a beer and then visit the cute shops, including the terrific Sawyer Market.”

General Contractor
“They pretty much sell a little bit of everything, great produce in season, good wine and beer selection, small gourmet market, some housewares and other necessities. Open year round. ”

American Restaurant
$$
“Off Season specials just can't be beat; rib nights on Monday, and then regular menu specials Tue-Thurs. Aside from that, the dishes are just way too good to pass up. I'd say this place is a must to try! They always have the best features and homemade desserts.”

Coffee Shop
$
“Right across the street from Greenbush Brewery in downtown Sawyer you'll find Infusco Coffee Roaster. They do all your specialty hot and cold brews as well as teas and more. They have a delicious lineup of pastries and other snacks available as well. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. A great place to catch a morning cup of coffee or spend some time reading a book.”

Breakfast Spot

“Delicious breakfast in a small cafe attached to a Swedish bakery. Start your morning with the New York Times and a strong cup of coffee in their sun-filled side room! Try the French Lentils and eggs with curry yogurt and grab a chocolate sea-salt cookie from the bakery.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“This is a rural superstore... one room after another caters to anything and everything. It's a small grocery store, a farm stand, a garden center, a kitchen supply house, gift store and so much more. If you need rations and you're heading north, go here.”
  • 14 locals recommend
Butcher
“Family-owned butcher shop with great quality beef, chicken, pork, lamb, etc. They do sell some seafood as well. It’s a little bit of a hike in Sawyer but the quality is fantastic. They do get busy so its recommended to call ahead or place an order online.”

Furniture / Home Store
“Sojourn is a beautiful shop with a sophisticated mix of home accessories, jewelry, and vintage furniture. An impressive collection to even big city dwellers. It's the stunning black building on the left side of the Red Arrow Highway as you head towards the Greenbush Brewery. 15% off for guests of the Guest House! Just mention that you're staying here. ”

Café
“This is a fantastic warm and friendly place just down the road from the cottage--walking distance. Great for breakfast or a picnic lunch to go. Or pick up some hors d'oeuvres and wine for your dinner at home. ”
