“Grocerant” At Cavanaugh’s Offers Artisan Eats For People On The Go

Since there wasn’t really a word for a place that’s part restaurant part grocery store, The Homestead decided to create one. The remodel of Cavanaugh’s “grocerant” is almost complete. From the NEW made-to-order pizza bar to the addition of some all new, gourmet grab-and-go food and beverage items—Even draft beer!—here’s a rundown of new offerings already available and news on what’s coming soon.

Designed With Your Needs In Mind
 Does this sound familiar? You’re on vacation with the family. It’s breakfast time. You’re looking to start the day with a warm pastry and hot cappuccino; the kids want a bowl of Cocoa Puffs.

Or how about this? You come up with a plan over coffee to spend the day at the beach or sightseeing at the Sleeping Bear Dunes. But you don’t have the time—or the supplies in the fridge—to pack a decent picnic lunch.

 Wine, spirits, craft beer by the bottle (and NOW on draft). Gourmet sandwiches, salads and food that’s ready to eat and ready to heat. Sodas, mixers and artesian cheese perfect for that impromptu cocktail party.

 Grab n go cooler


“If it’s possible for a store to be all things to all people,” says The Homestead’s Tom Bartholomew, “we like to think Cavanaugh’s in The Village comes pretty darn close. But recent remodeling efforts have taken this concept to a whole new level.”

Made To Order, While You Watch

Aside from the newly remodeled kitchen and new bar-style seating, Bartholomew says the most noticeable an exciting addition is Cavanaugh’s new “five-minute pizza oven” and made-to-order pizza bar, with regular and breakfast pizzas.

“Now, you can build your own personal-sized pizza from start to finish,” he says. “The ingredients are all right there. And nothing is frozen. It starts with your choice of a freshly made, nine-inch, regular or gluten-free crust, regular or lactose-free cheese, then fresh-cut vegetables and meats. The attendant pops it in the oven and its done in five minutes.”  

Cavanaugh’s has always offered guests and residents a one-stop shop for last minute grocery items and even resort souvenirs and resort logo wear. A popular meeting place for guests headed out on a morning kayak trip or waiting to meet a resort shuttle before going on a Leelanau Peninsula wine tour, Cavanaugh’s makes the morning wait enjoyable with fresh coffee and baked goods daily

Fresh Soup And Salad Bar, Coming Soon

“Construction of the new outdoor dining patio is ongoing next door,” says Bartholomew. “But there is also one more great addition coming to the inside of Cavanaugh’s—a build-your-own salad and homemade soup bar.”

Like everything else at this unique grocerant, Cavanaugh’s soup and salad bar will feature fresh cut, local lettuce and vegetables when in season. Soups will also be made fresh daily for guests and residents looking to take-out or dine inside.

Cavanaugh’s is open 7 days a week from 8am - 9pm during the summer months.
