Basic small town cafe menu. Average quality. Friendly / prompt service. No real breakfast options in area. Recommend skipping the coffee. It was pretty much just flavorless colored water... way too thin for any real coffee flavor. While there is no competitve or marketing reason to offer really good coffee, they would do the U.P. proud if they improved theirs.

I don't care to much for Slim's except on Sunday when they have turkey, dressing, mash potatoes and cranberry sauce. They include turnips (which I always ask them NOT to put on my plate.) They also offer homemade cookies and bread for sale. This is a hole in the wall restaurant. It's not as clean as it should be but... More

We had breakfast at this friendly place Thursday morning and it was the bright spot of our trip up to Copper Harbor. The food was great and we felt right at home. This is what you expect in a small town where everyone feels at home. The available large cookies by the half dozen continue to refresh our happy memories... More

If you're in the area, this is a stop you really should make. The have good food and the best desserts. Don't forget to grab 1/2 dozen cookies to take with you. They are awesome.

Heading up the peninsula sadly there aren't a whole lot of places to get food. It is a tad bit dated. The service was a bit slow but the food was really good.

Stopped for dinner, only one other couple there. Our dinners were typical of small town cafe, nothing spectacular. Restaurant seems to do a terrific business for breakfast and lunch. Which are both very good. Sundays restaurant is packed. Besides breakfast a very generous turkey dinner is served (daily special).

My husband and I have been coming here for years. I am finally taking the time to write a review. I would have rated them very good but the consistent below average service has brought them down. We have been here when there has been only one table and we have been here when the place has been full......service the... More

Food was basic food, nothing spectacular. We went on a Sunday morning and the place was filled. Took about an hour to receive food for four. Went back for breakfast a day or two after, the place was pretty empty, service was much faster....although we did have a different waitress. Overall okay.

There are very few people in Mohawk......or the Keweenaw.....or the UP of Michigan, but this is a terrific place to visit. I've been here twice. Once with a group of bikers and this latest time by my lonesome. Great parking. ON the main highway between Hancock and Copper Harbor on the East side. Breakfast offerings are vast and I had...
