My co-workers and I eat here at least once a week during our lunch hour. They are quick to seat and serve you and always have wonderfully-prepared dishes. The vegetable delight (mild spicy) is my favorite dish and is always served up with very fresh and tasty vegetables. Their hot and sour soup is also well-made and has the perfect amount of kick to it. Great on a cold, Michigan afternoon!
Marshall Field's is always my first stop when I need a fantastic outfit for a party or some cute heels. With great sales, I often glance through the clearance racks where I've often been able to snag a Ralph Lauren or DKNY sweater for 70% off! Great staff and nice layout make it a good place to shop.
Bistro Bella Vita is a fun and trendy restaurant with unique and tasty entrees and martinis. The green apple martini is one of my favorites and the Rotini Con Pollo is by and large my favorite pasta dish ever. With large, corkscrew pasta noodles, pine nuts, chicken, and a pesto-cream base, it has a flavor that is unmatched. Also, the restaurant typically doesn't have a large wait-time for dinner and I've never had to wait for lunch. The atmosphere is trendy, open and fun making it a great stop for downtown dining.
Everytime I've been to the Alpine Fazolie's, I have been impressed and felt like a valued consumer. Bob, one of the managers, remembers us frequent visitors and often stops by to say hello and ask how our food was. You don't often get that type of service at a fast food restaurant. The breadsticks are offered often and are served piping hot. The food has always been good and fast. Great location to enjoy your favorite Fazolie's meal!
Jimmy John's is one of my favorite spots to grab a quick and tasty lunch. The staff here at the Alpine location is more than accomodating and has even helped us get a great table when it's busy. The vegetarian sub is my absolute favorite! Soft, chewy bread and fast service make it a great spot to come for a nutricious and satisfying lunch.
My husband and I go to Signatures almost every weekend to sit and have a caramel latte and Tiger Spice Chai. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual and is also a great place to come to for a quick bite to eat. They have a wonderful array of unique and delicious panini's that are served with chips and a pickle. They also have a wonderful selection of pastries and desserts. My only complaint would be the wait-time for both coffee orders and food orders.
The Piper has long been me and my husband's favorite place to dine. We come here for special occasions, to entertain friends, and just for the great food and views. Sitting right on Macatawa Lake, The Piper offers fantastic specials and the best Flan in the area! They have unique and tasty starters and succulent entrees that have your mouth watering just reading the descriptions.
This has been our spot for Valentine's Day every year and you must try the special mixed drinks (especially the martinis!) they come up with just for this holiday. You won't be disappointed!
On a recent lunch to Charleys Crab, I was pleasently surprised to see a freshly redone interior and a superb fall menu to peruse. After seeing one of my favorite fall delights on the menu, I decided to order the butternut squash soup. I was not disappointed at all! Their entire fall menu had great entree and salad options to choose from. I highly recommend stopping in sometime during the fall season.
I was very impressed when I stepped into Stone's Throw for the first time and saw some great design, beautiful furniture and fantastic prices. Stepping away from the basic designs of local furniture stores, Stone's Throw offers furniture more in the way of West Elm and Pottery Barn, without the price tag to match. A great sales staff was there to help and they offer an interior designer to come out to your house to give you layout advise and ideas. They also have a kitchy gift selection that include vases, frames and wrapping paper.
