Tammi S: “The smell hits you on a Sat. or Sun. the morning after being out on the town – and you know it is where you need to be. Delicious breakfast sandwiches and a brownie or two and you’re set for the day. They offer a variety of coffees and much to my delight – chai – that they prepared perfectly blended with skim milk. I know a lot of places that don’t do that right. Anytime of the day – a great place to stop for a snack!!”

Magda Z: “Village Bakery is the best place for coffee, made from scratch muffins and pastries, real salads, delicious sandwiches, and homemade soups. Owners are super nice and always ready for help! During the summer season, you can find gluten free muffins. Coffee is the best in all of Put-in-Bay!”

Glenn K: “This is a true mom-n-pop café where the owners are behind the counter serving, cooking, and baking. My friends and I have been to Village Café several times over the last few years and we learned that all of their offerings are made fresh daily. The owners are super nice people who go out of their way to take care of their customers. They even gave us free homemade soup! If you are tired of tourist food and need real food, Village Café is the best place.”
