Rock River Cafe supports the local economy in every area of the menu, from produce to meat to bread. The menu is designed to promote local cuisine and the cafe's slogan is "A Fresh Expression of Local Cuisine". Everything is made from recipe, including dressings and sauces, pancakes and desserts. We serve signature menu items throughout the menu making each visit memorable, presenting local ingredients with the respect and honor they deserve. The menu evolves with the seasons, as do our hours.

Pros & Cons

Pros
Educated, friendly, kind people with GREAT food.
Cons
SOMETIMEs you wait a little for the food, and for the impatient it can be an issue but I know it's fresh food freshly made, so not a "con" at all, and the owners will have a chat w you- they are knowledgeable and interesting!!

A great place to stop for a meal, half way in between Marquette, MI and Munising, MI on M94. The food quality is excellent, the staff is always friendly, free Wi-fi, and a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Sometimes the kitchen gets a little backed up if the cafe is filled with customers, but the wait is worth it!

Good food takes time, but it's worth it. We make Rock River Cafe a destination whenever we can fit it in to our busy Upper Michigan schedule. It's so wonderful to have such a great restaurant in a community with virtually no healthy food available outside the co-op grocery store across the street. Wonderful destinations to combine your trip with: North Country Trail, Valley Spur ski/mountain bike area, Eben Ice Caves, Laughing White Fish Falls, etc.
