Featured on the “Food Network Channel”, and located an easy 20 minute drive from our Allegan bed and breakfast, this amazing “Rustic American Eatery & Bakery” focuses all their attention and skill on local and fresh ingredients. With a stone oven for producing their own bread and a great eye for innovation, they craft their own masterpiece entrees and small plates with fresh produce. When we send guests to Salt of the Earth, we know they’ll be getting great service and amazing food. Their Aged Cheddar Peirrogies and Fried Brussels are fantastic and they always feature a new “Fresh Board” consisting of dishes made from the best in-season ingredients. We tell all our guests to save room for dessert, or take it back with you to the Castle so you can enjoy it out in the screened gazebo or in your luxurious guest room at our romantic getaway. You definitely don’t want to miss out on their chocolate cake with sea salt frosting or their delicious S’more dessert with homemade marshmallow!
Located in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo, Principle Food & Drink does not disappoint! The moment you walk in you’re met with a welcoming staff and cozy yet upscale atmosphere. While providing the finest ingredients locally sourced from the farm community, you cannot beat this menu! Their Butternut Ravioli and Berkshire Pork Chops are phenomenal, and they also feature a great seafood menu with seasonal fish! In an area known for microbreweries, the bar at Principle specializes in unique handmade craft cocktails from house-made syrups and small batches of bitters, with the same artisan approach that these chefs bring to their food. Perfect for a night cap!
