This is a cheese shop, but it also serves wonderful sub sandwiches. Try the pretzel bread -- if they haven't run out. (It's a popular spot!) They also have good salads.

This restaurant had a fire in the fall, and they are working on re-building. They may open again in late July or August. Locally sourced, organic food. It's pricey—and worth every bite. Lovely location and an award-winning wine list.

Beaches
Great, public Lake Michigan beach just beyond Van’s Garage, is a local favorite. The trail head to the beach is just beyond Van's Garage at the end of Cedar Street - downtown Leland. Water level is higher than normal this year. Good place to look for Petoskey Stones.
