Healthy and delicious! Squash breakfast bowl and beet grilled sandwich served on their famous sour dough bread were my favorites! Great service!

Every time I go here, the food is spectacular and the staff is incredible. My only complaint would be that they immediately bring my daughter water in a styrofoam cup with a plastic straw. I love the sentiment, but we don't use plastic or styrofoam as a general rule because it is awful for the environment.

My husband and I recently moved to MI from Idaho and one thing I have been yearning for was a maple bar!  You'd think that with all the maple syrup made in the state there would be more maple frosted donuts!  Well, finding the Blue Heron and maple frosted doughnuts at the same time made my day!  They were delicious along with all the ... read more

Good food, friendly staff! Please get more veggie/vegan options!! A simple veggie burger or some tofu for tofu scramble for breakfast. Salad prices could go down. Delicious baked goods, get some!!

Stopped by this lovely cafe with my husband and parents while traveling. At first I wasn't sure of the menu butI opted for the BLT. I have to say it was the best BLT I've ever had !!! The bread was absolutely delicious. Definitely worth the short wait.

Very impressed by this café! Stumbled upon it while on the way up north - it's not far off 131. Had the farmer's omelet ($11) and it was amazing. Easily the best breakfast I've had for this price range. Attention to detail very evident. Service was excellent. Will definitely visit again!

How many times the first place you visit becomes your favorite? Snuck in for lunch and got the Lunch Flight: ham sandwich, soup, salad and a cookie.

I ordered 16 Paczkis for Fat Tuesday. They were awful! If we were lucky there was about a teaspoon of filling. I love Blue Heron, but I was very disappointed. Very poor quality. Won’t buy them again.
Christina Koschmider via facebook.com - Mar 6, 2019
Whether takeout or eat in, the food at this establishment is always mouthwatering. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is down home. They are a half block from our favourite hotel, and not far off the highway if just passing through. Makes a great pit stop if you're headed further north.

Not what I was expecting. Food was excellent. More like what you would find at a larger upscale lunch stop. Bake goods were also very good.

Just what you would expect
Great food, not overly complicated. Always busy and reasonably priced. They often try out new dishes. Top notch bakery. Try the sourdough if you are there for breakfast, you'll want to take a loaf home without a doubt.

I really enjoy the variety of menu and most delicious foods. Always great to take friends when they come into town or just to treat myself if I'm alone. Reasonably priced!

There aren't many choices for breakfast at 7:00 AM in Cadillac,MI. You don't need them! Just go to Blue Heron!
Yummy pastries, hot coffee and a breakfast sandwiches (with fried potatoes!) so big you may end up eating half for lunch! And to think I was going to have oatmeal! Ha!
