When going out to eat, what kind of atmosphere do you prefer?
The swanky expensive bistros?
The family sit-down restaurants?
Buffet all-you-can-eat style?
Or the smaller, more intimate eateries and cafe's?

For me, it all depends on my mood...I enjoy 'em all...but if I wanna go somewhere and grab a bite and a cuppa coffee, I prefer the small restaurants – the ones with only a handful of tables. I can sit there, relax, read, and not feel like the Eyes of Laura Mars are upon me.

Michigan has endless tiny eateries...too many to mention here, so I've narrowed it down to a “Sweet 16”, some of which have gotten mentioned on various web sites, some not.
