Even the natural lighting makes the new 9 Bean Rows cafe in Suttons Bay feel French. You see it too, right?
We were some of the first to eat at the new cafe. I have been tracking down the 9 Bean Rows croissants for 2 summers now (remember this?) and when I heard that they were opening a lunch spot in a nearby town, I could hardly wait.
My first lunch at 9 Bean Rows was a hot croque monsieur and an order of french fries with garlic aioli, that I shared with my friends. We savored our lunch and enjoyed a chance to linger. This would be the perfect place to duck in some afternoon and have some wine, bread and cheese before a movie.
I am really happy that another great restaurant has opened on the Leelanau Peninsula. Beautiful fresh bread, tender pastries and fresh-from-the-farm (their farm!) ingredients. Simple and delicious.
