Foodie Finds: Best Place to Eat in Saugatuck, Michigan

This past weekend, we spent a few hours at Lake Michigan. It was lovely - my very favorite beach (Oval Beach, in Saugatuck, Michigan). There were crowds of people - swimming, flying kites, walking, looking for the perfect rock. The water was warm, and we swam for more than an hour. It was the perfect end to summer. After towelling off, changing, and dusting the sand from our feet, we drove over to a new restaurant in Fennville (neighbor to Saugatuck), called Salt of the Earth. This fantastic rustic American eatery and bakery just opened on August 25th, taking over the spot from the previous (and wonderful) restaurant, Journeyman.

The outside beckoned us in, with classic paint, flowers, and a sign just glinting in the sun, hinting at the treasures within.

There's a bakery and coffeeshop at the front, filled with fantastic desserts and a dwindling supply of artisanal bread, baked by Mari Reijmerink. If you'd like a loaf to take home, be sure to speak up for it when you walk in - the loaves go flying off the shelves.

Inside, there are beautiful wooden tables and very calm walls, and the restaurant is divided into two main rooms. The noise was muted - everyone was enjoying their meals. Salt of the Earth does host many bands (mostly Michigan-based), incluing folk, bluegrass, jazz, and Irish for an adult audience. You can check their music schedule on their website.
