Beanery by day. Art studio by night.

Brand new to Mackinac Island, Watercolor Cafe is an artsy eatery and a creative space. Locally owned, we specialize in fresh coffee, sandwiches, baked goods, fresh fruit smoothies, healthy snacks and more. After a day of food service the space becomes a fun and relaxed art studio with scheduled classes. Our calendar of creative workshops, adult art classes, and children’s events (all guided by local artists) provides a fresh, exciting experience to your Mackinac Island visit. Find us in the little yellow building by the lake, behind the Bay View B&B.
