Ann Arbor to Chicago - where to stop for good eats.

Driving from Ann Arbor to Chicago and back - any suggestions where to stop for lunch and or dinner on the way? I am going to be on I-94 for most of the way. Thanks.

    1. Pull off at New Buffalo and have the most fabulous crepes at AnnPierre's. I was a meat and potato's guy until I had the savory crepes followed by a desert crepe. Really different and unforgettable. You should hit it right about lunch time. It's just before the Mich/Ind. border. Really, please give it a try either on your way there or back.

      1. When Sliding west I like to bump into Paw Paw....

          1. Just west of Paw Paw is a little jewel, Coloma, which you will find some treats right off the expressway. Check out and be sure not to miss Contessa Wine Cellars for some fun sipping and Karma Vista for party wines and great views. The Chocolate Garden is right next door and you will discover the best truffles you have ever had!
