Cafe has new owners and expanded hours
Water Street Cafe has been a big hit with an expanded menu and expanded hours since new owners took over May 1st. The new proprietors are all members of the same local family. Jim and Kirt Ploe are the chef and front of house manager, spouses Jennie and Stacy are the servers, and their kids are helping out too. Kirt and Jim have extensive restaurant experience, but they've never owned their own place until now. "As soon as I walked in here, I knew this was the place we wanted," Kirt Ploe said of the cafe located at 113 Water Street in downtown Boyne City. They've kept many of the same menu items as previous owners Larry and Valerie Glasgow, and they've added some of their own creations as well. The most popular addition so far has been a $12 Sunday breakfast buffet, which includes omelettes made to order, scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles, fruit, biscuits and gravy, and baked goods for dessert. The cafe is open 5 days a week in the fall/winter off season from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays. New menu. Facebook Page. Phone (231) 497-5050.
