The Best Sandwich in Leelanau County

Roasted chicken breast, fresh crisp lettuce, goat cheese, herb mayo, and dare I say pretzel bread?!

The Village Cheese Shanty hands down wins the best sandwich award for Leelanau County Michigan. My recent adventure to the historic Fishtown Leland was a glorious sunny evening, perfect for a 5pm dinner while exploring the boardwalk situated in Fishtown’s Harbor. A sunset walk along the public beach situated a few blocks south of the Cheese Shanty was to follow, but first I had to marvel in my sandwich.


With enough choices to fit any sandwich lover, my personal favorite is the “Lake Effect” (pictured above, minus tomato). The sweet goat cheese complements the salty pretzel bread to perfection and my stomach is growling just thinking about it.

Whether you want to grab your sammie and go, or sit along the boardwalk and watch the fishing boats come and go, the Cheese Shanty is accommodating – you can even call in an order ahead of time to-go if you’re in a hurry!

Next time you are driving along M22 through Leelanau county, stop into Fishtown for a sandwich. I promise you won’t be disappointed.The
