Hungry skiers love to indulge in the hearty and creative Stone Turtle Cafe dishes. Warm up with Classic Spicy Chili or the Chipotle Veggie Chili, served with a warm roll. Or, if you’re really hungry, try a grilled panini sandwich, or a hearty burrito bowl. If it’s comfort food you’re after, Bosco cheesy bread sticks or a fresh chocolate chip cookie may fit the bill. Quench your thirst with a mug of cocoa, or choose from a variety of wines, Michigan craft beers, and specialty cocktails. Menu includes vegan and gluten-free options. Watch a video of head chef Missy making one of her famous panini sandwiches!
