Cousins': Eat here with your family
This is a nice family style restaurant right outside of the town of South Haven.
We ate there on a Sunday afternoon. They were busy but got us in right away.
We were eating with my husband's cousin and her husband!
We had good service in a nicely decorated room.
Favorite Dish: They had dinners that were like momma makes! We had pork chops and mashed potatoes that were really good.
They also offered a generous dessert menu.
I definitely would recommend stopping there if you are in the area at meal time.
You don't have to have your cousin with you, but we're sure glad we did!

Sherman's Dairy Bar: Terriffic Ice Cream!
This is an excellent place to go after a day at the beach or for an outing on a warm evening. Sherman's Dairy Bar makes their own ice cream which is considered the best in SW Michigan. They usually have a long line outside their store on summer evenings.
It's worth the wait. You can order something at their counter and eat it in their dining area which includes a free cup of coffee or get a cone to "take out".
They also have retail packages in some of the grocery stores in SW Michigan and Northern Indiana.

Golden Brown Cafe: Best breakfast
This is a bakery when you walk in the front, but in the back is a regular restaurant for full service breakfast. But in the Summer, when the blueberries are in full season, why would you want anything else besides the wonderful blueberry coffee cake, donuts, and other wonderful baked goodies with blueberries? and the best coffee!
If you sit long enough in the morning, you will see the locals arrive to work out the problems of, if not the world, then certainly the county. Be quiet and listen and when you get up to get yourself more coffee, take them some too!
Favorite Dish: Chocolate dipped donuts or the blueberry baked goods during blueberry season
Favorite Dish: This place is trying to be a little more sophisticated than your usual resort haunts; e.g., decent wine list, careful attention to the quality of ingredients, etc. We stuck with beef here and it was really good. They have a lot of seafood too, but a lot of it is not from the area, so what's the point?
Ma's Coffee Pot: Ma's Coffee Pot
I think this is the most authentic roadside diner I've ever been in. There were some desperate-looking characters in there, and the female cook was missing a front tooth. The waitress was very sweet, and my roast pork sandwich was quite good. However, if you get the mashed potatoes, they're powdered--an unforgiveable diner sin! Great homemade pie though.
When you visit South Haven you...
When you visit South Haven you must eat at Clementine's. The lines are always long but the food and atmosphere is wonderful. The prices are moderate.
Favorite Dish: Any of their chicken sandwiches, ribs, steaks, etc.
