Traverse City, MI & Glen Arbor, MI casual dining spots?

jroach | Mar 29, 2013 02:41 PM

We're planning a family vacation from Ohio to Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes (Glen Arbor), Michigan in August 2013. Looking for casual, non-chain, kid-friendly (we'll have our 5yr old and 10 month old with us) dinner and lunch spots. Our 5 yr old is rather adventurous for that age, so pretty much any menu works for us. What's good and local to the area?

I also wouldn't mind recs for a good coffeeshop/bakery (that might offer sandwiches we could get as take-out for a picnic along the way) and maybe an ice cream shop.

Lodging specifics still need to be worked out, but right now we are strongly considering a B&B about 5 miles west of 'downtown' TC.

Thanks for any info you can pass my way. :)
