The best restaurant name
The Zanzibar Beanery.
What a fabulous name for a restaurant.
It's in Weidman, Mich., about five miles from where we live. Weidman is an old mill town where the mill closed years ago. The Zanzibar Beanery is just kind of a hole-in-the-wall place right by the corner of Weidman and Airline roads, just south of Lake of the Hills.
It's open only for breakfast and lunch; we ate there Sunday. It's good, solid, protean food, nothing special, nothing spectacular, but solid. I had corn beef hash and eggs, and it kept me going the rest of the day.
The sense of whimsy in the name is just so fabulous.
