“Possibly the best meal you'll find in the area. Nice atmosphere, quiet. Beware, it fills up fast (but there's a bar to have a drink while you wait.)”

Park
“A smaller, more intimate beach. Located in a fabulous neighborhood of historic beach-front homes. Parking can get scarce during the heat of the day, but you can also bike or walk.”

Food
“An absolute gem. Big-city style deli sandwiches made to order, fresh deli case with revolving selection of salads, tempting freshly made desserts, all hand made in house. Large coolers stocked with locally made cheeses, dips, meats, etc and a wall full of shelves with various locally made delicacies. A fabulous choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner if you feel like picking something up and taking it home (but they do have seating there too.)”

Restaurant
“Make time while you're here and make it a priority to go to Red Dock. The name is deceiving because it's not a cafe. It's a bar. Surrounded by water. Where you will swear you're in Key West. Get a cold beer or drink from the bar, and within 30 seconds of sitting down and soaking it in you'll say "Wow, this is awesome."”

Point of Interest
“Michigan.org does a great job of covering tons of things to do for every type of traveler and every season of the year including parks and trails, snow skiing, breweries, boating, shopping, galleries and a whole lot more. If you are using their map features, a reasonable drive from Saugatuck/Douglas would be as far North as Muskegon, East just past Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo, and South to South Haven.”

Bakery
“Owner operator Mari has a gift with butter and sugar. Aside from building her own French styled brick oven for making magic happen with bread, she offers the best of local farms offerings, organic goods and sustainable meats in the deli styled cafe setting. Don’t miss the monkey bread styled treat of fresh fruit baked into her creation of yum. ”
