Heather’s Restaurant (Bay City)

31 Jul

hi! how was your weekend? we spent ours up in the “thumb” of michigan with some friends, and just got home this afternoon. we had a blast, but overindulged just a bit (oops.) 

whenever john and i travel, we pack food, knowing that whatever everyone else is going to be eating ain’t gonna cut it. we packed lots of food, but not enough breakfast stuff. when we headed out this morning around 11 am, i asked john if he thought there would be any vegetarian restaurants in bay city, about an hour from where we were staying in caseville, mi. he laughed at me. after a quick google search on my phone, i discovered heather’s restaurant. heather’s looked really cool, and seemed to have something for everyone. there are tons of vegetarian and vegan options, as well as meat and dairy. i was so excited when we arrived, it was so stinkin’ cute!

i loved the antique decor, and the enormous black board for daily specials!

after debating between breakfast or lunch, i decided to go with the grilled banana-coconut oatmeal that was on special. it was delicious, and i couldn’t even finish the bowl. even better, because now i get to relive the deliciousness tomorrow morning. 

john went with a black bean burger + a side or red potatoes. the square bun and patty totally remind me of wendy’s. haha!

he loved it, and ate every bite. the cracker sticking out of the guacamole is made in house, i didn’t try it, but he said it was good! 

of course we had to get dessert.  john rolled with a chocolate chip cookie, which i forgot to take a picture of, and i got a slice of the raw apple pie to go. i just ate the pie while typing this up, it was so good!! the only way it could have been better is if there was a scoop of vanilla coconut milk ice cream on the side. 😉

we will definitely be back to heather’s whenever we are in the bay city area again. this place has delicious and healthy food, complete with fantastic service, and an awesome atmosphere. 🙂

have you discovered any new restaurants lately? what did you think?

    It’s named after me! How sweet 🙂 Something about a chalkboard menu makes everything seem like it’s fresher and more delicious. ❤
