We were in town for business. I had the Nature Lover Salad which turned out to be great combination among Blueberry, vegetables and nuts. Bread was very tasteful. Swift service. Great lunch!

This is a real bakery with table service. We stopped for pastries to take with us and had a French press coffee while we were there. Everything was great. The staff were very friendly.

My husband and I were recently there for a meal. On Saturdays they offer all day breakfast. I enjoyed an omelet, potatoes and wheat sour dough toast. All were excellent. We will be going there again.

Stopped for lunch, had sandwiches which were okay. Loved the molasses and peanut butter cookies! Muffins were delicious too!

Some of the best sandwiches I have ever tasted with a great blend of flavors. Nice variety with a flare for the unusual. The BLT soup was very good. Service was great. This is a must stop if you are driving through Cadillac! Unfortunately they...More

The Blue Heron serves an excellent breakfast and lunch in large proportions; they are not open for dinner. Food is always fresh and unique. Daily lunches include a choice of 2 homemade soups w/complimentary homemade sourdough bread and a variety of sandwiches on homemade sourdough bread or wraps. Salads are always freshly made and filled with fruit, vegetables, and/or meat with tasty dressings. Two baker's display cases are filled each morning with fresh cookies, fried cakes, muffins, bagels, pies, cakes, and a large variety of sweet rolls, baked on site. Customers congregate there for coffee and a choice of doughnut or cookie. Their breakfasts are hearty and delicious. The owner is the cook, and it is a treat to find such a high quality restaurant in this small tourist town.
