The Herrick House has such a popular dining area, the Mulberry Cafe, that they are doubling their space for spring 2013. Just another example of a Michigan success story brought about by talent and hard work.
Here is an excerpt from their website.
Herrick House, located in the heart of downtown Clare, MI opened
as a gift shop and home decor store in the fall of 2005. In 2007
we remodeled part of the building and opened the Mulberry Cafe
as part of our operation and the restaurant provides visitors
with a complete dining and shopping experience.
We offer a full breakfast as well as a lovely luncheon menu. Every day our specials include quiche, fresh baked scones and lemon curd, soups and sandwiches. Our pie table offers a wonderful conclusion to your lunch. After a satisfying meal shop our 2000 sq feet of unique gifts, accessories and decorating items for your home.
Clare has a couple of other interesting destinations
downtown. The Doherty Hotel is an historic fixture and the
famous Cops and Donuts has become a fixture.
