The one-time Bud’s bait shop/gas station/bakery in Interlochen has glowing, cozy new digs with bridges to the past, like a phone booth for cell-phone users, old-fashioned cake doughnuts and the immortal pluck-it cakes. During renovation, baker Bob Schmidt found Bud’s wife Grace’s recipe book, and brought back her meltingly addictive pull-apart loaves, baked in Grace’s own oven. Grace used to sell out by daybreak to hungry fishermen.
Be sure to call ahead—these special cakes are available by special order only during certain seasons.
