The Pines serves basic breakfasts done right in a bright, cozy log-cabin setting.
This is our second-favorite place to eat in Copper Harbor (still high praise, considering how impossible it would be to knock off the Harbor Haus). The Pines occupies a log building on Copper Harbor's main street, right across from the Keweenaw Adventure Company, the area's main outdoor outfitter. The Pines serves meals all day, but we hit it up mainly for breakfast during our days in Copper Harbor. (If you spend more than a day in Copper Harbor, you find yourself at the same dining establishments more than once, and you're about ready to add the Hungarian waitress to your Christmas card list.) The cozy log interior, with a stone fireplace, has items of local industry hanging on the walls, such as ice picks, saws, skis, etc. For our breakfasts, we had omeletes, French toast, etc. These items, of course, are pretty hard to do poorly, and the Pines handled them well. We liked the clean, bright interior and the big corner booth that had two windows looking out on the streets of Copper Harbor where locals set out displays of rental mountain bikes and generally got us excited about spending a day outdoors.
