Open daily during store hours. Lunch served from 11:30am to 4:30pm.
The Stone Turtle Day Lodge & Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy a homemade, delicious lunch, and relax in a peaceful, Pure Michigan setting. Once you step foot into this rustic lodge, with views of snow-covered pine trees all around, and the sound of crackling logs as they burn in our huge field stone fireplace, you may never want to leave!
We also have a sun deck with outdoor seating and bonfire pit for those sunny winter days, plus free WiFi, clean, warm bathrooms, and the friendliest kitchen crew you could ever imagine.
The Stone Turtle Cafe offers a broad lunch menu of hearty, satisfying dishes that we craft with care. Try our famous classic or vegetarian chili with a warm, crusty sourdough roll. Or have one of our handmade specialty grilled paninis, made with Stone House Bread from Traverse City. If it’s comfort food you’re after, enjoy specialties like flatbread pizzas and Bosco cheesy bread sticks. We also bake an assortment of cookies and homemade muffins on a daily basis.
We have special food events throughout the winter, too, so be sure to check the Event Calendar for our “Get your Fill at the Grill” barbeque days, pig roasts, Paella parties, Ribs cookouts, and more. We love to eat almost as much as we love to ski, so we’re always recipe testing to bring you the tastiest Apres Ski options we can!
Would you like to see something on the Stone Turtle Cafe menu? Let us know! We are open to suggestions.
Dairy-free, Gluten-free, and vegetarian options are available.
Skiers are also welcome to bring their own food and drinks for a Day Lodge “picnic”. The Stone Turtle Cafe does not serve alcohol, but patrons over the age of 21 are welcome to bring their own “adult” beverages.
