UNCOMMON GROUNDS COFFEE ROASTERS: Uncommon Grounds is among Saugatuck’s crowd favorites nestled in the heart of downtown.

Uncommon Grounds knows their baked goods, so you can’t go wrong by making a stop here.

Diners have the opportunity to satisfy their sweet tooth with flavorful carrot cake pancakes or zesty blueberry and lemon French toast; how could you say no to that? If you’re looking for a more protein-packed option, give their “GROW” burger or fish tacos a try!

SAUGATUCK BREWING COMPANY: Have you ever tried fried green tomatoes? Well now’s your chance! SBC offers this unique starter along with a bacon jalapeño popper dip, which will be sure to cure any savory cravings. Make sure to give them a try!

J. PAUL’S AT THE KIRBY: Another option resides right down the road! J. Paul’s does a lovely job of bringing its diners fresh ingredients with a twist, and Restaurant Week is no exception. They will be serving everything from tuna poke to Berkshire pork to fresh pea and mint risotto. This wonderfully curated menu was thought out by the talented Kirby team, so be sure to check them out!
