“"You haven't visted Grand Haven until you've sunk your teeth into a Pronto Pup". We've been going here for 20 years and the recipe hasn't changed. It is worth the wait in line as the young adults in the "hot box" are super friendly even in the hot & humid summer months. CASH ONLY”

Restaurant
“A local favorite. This place isn't really Mexican, but it is unique and enjoyable. Seating is outdoor only. Worth a try if you're looking for something uniquely West Michigan.”

Café
“Aldea serves up the best coffee in GH! Plus it's coffee with a purpose. Aldea works directly with farmers who live in the mountains of La Union, Honduras. All coffee they serve comes directly from these farmers. All coffees are purchased at above fair trade prices and are specialty grade. They work in partnership with Aldea Development, to provide microloans, training and opportunities for the farmers they work with. They prepare it there in front of you and it looks more like a lab than a coffee house! ”
