Heather's Restaurant Bay City
|Heather's Restaurant Bay City, Michigan|
I first heard about Heather's Restaurant from Dan from The Gay Vegans when I met him at Vida Vegan Con II. Upon his advice, I hightailed it over to Heather's for what I was promised would be delicious food! Okay, actually, I tried to go to Heather's a few times on Michigan road trips, but couldn't make it because they close early most days. They are only open for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays.

The Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich is one of my absolute favorite items on the menu at Heather's. It has a delicious combination of flavors to keep your taste buds happy. It's served with a Red Pepper Almond Mayo that is truly fabulous.

All of the vegan sides we have tried at Heather's have been very good, including the Coleslaw.

Heather's always has beautiful, delicious-looking desserts, but we're always too stuffed to eat them. I did once buy some cookies to go, and they were just as good as I had imagined. They were moist and delicious.
Fear not if you are eating out with a die-hard meat eater. Heather's has plenty of options for both omnivores and herbivores alike. The omnivores seem just as happy with their food as the herbivores. The food at Heather's is certainly more creative, fresh, and unique than anywhere else I have been outside of a big city. Aside from the decor, which is more like a cozy country restaurant, this place would fit in in a place like Ann Arbor, Royal Oak, or a big city.
Finding Heather's has seriously improved my travels around Michigan and I make it a point to stop there whenever I can. Truthfully, we sometimes make the hour and a half drive from our house just to go to Heather's. Then we plan other things around it - like stopping in Frankenmuth or Birch Run.
