Four Roses Cafe

663 10th St. Plainwell, MI  

Located about 20-25 minutes away from Castle in the Country, just north of M-89 on 10th street, is Four Roses Cafe. This restaurant has captured our attention in recent months for their unique, fine dining menu in a hometown atmosphere.

Four Roses easily fills up for dinner on many nights of the week. Offering a constantly changing menu based on local ingredients and sourced from the local farmers markets, it’s easy to see why. Their amazing dessert menu is large, so plan to take dessert back with you, or split side plates and/or salads so you can relish the whole experience. Visit their website for a sample menu, as well as a link to their Facebook page where you can find current features. Four Roses is closed Sundays and Mondays.

Maude’s Taphouse

Couples who love craft beers will unite over their love of Maude’s Taphouse, located about 10-15 minutes east of Castle in the Country in downtown Otsego, MI. Their menu features an extensive craft beer selection, 41 beers on tap, and pub food with a gourmet twist. The neighborhood pub-style atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and the food portion of their menu is tasty but limited. We recommend Maude’s to guests looking for a casual atmosphere. Visit their website for links to an updated beer list and menu, and check out their Facebook page where you can find current specials, events and live music.
