Head south on US127 or maybe take a more scenic route down Old Mission Road to the Village of Shepherd. On the main drag lives Shepherd Bar & Restaurant, a local hot spot full of rich history and dedication to great food, service and local brews. Before becoming what it is today, the local tavern started with a woman’s desire to open a beer garden in 1940. Nearly 80 years later, community members and visitors alike flock to the Shepherd Bar & Restaurant for house-made soups, lunch specials, Sunday Brunch and great beer.
New to the area is Silver Spoon Coffee House, the first and only coffee shop in Shepherd! Quickly becoming a local favorite, the Silver Spoon Coffee House offers a variety of coffee drinks including specialty lattes, as well as breakfast, lunch and dessert options.
Recommendations: Sunday Brunch features a spread of A.M. classics at Shepherd Bar & Restaurant; Maple Cream Latte at Silver Spoon Coffee House with famous Shepherd maple syrup and a grilled cinnamon roll with espresso icing!
Fun: In the week leading up to Halloween, witness a display of more than 1,000 jack-o-lanterns in Shepherd, Michigan. If you’re heading to the Mt. Pleasant area from the Greater Detroit area, on your way up stop by Uncle John’s Cider Mill for cider, hayrides and more!
