Breakfasts at Torch Lake Bed and Breakfast use a lot of locally harvested fruits and vegetables — for example from Providence Organic Farm right next door, from King Orchards, and from Friske Orchard, whose farm stand is so popular that bus tours stop there. For dinner, if you fancy a fresh catch from Great Lakes waters, ask the innkeepers which restaurants offer the best-prepared dishes. Go to our web site to see more information.

Craft beer
