Pasties originated as a meal for the miners of Cornwall, England, and later Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Wives would bake meat and vegetables in a crust and wrap it in many layers of linens or newsppaper for their husband's lunch. The Pastie provided a hot and nutritious meal that had good holding capacity and could be eaten anywhere. This full-bodied flavor soon became a favorite with locals and visitors alike. The Hunt family, Dick, Jean, Donna and Rob, and their dedicated crew, have been making pasties since acquiring the Mackinaw Pastie Shop in 1983 and have gained a reputation for serving the finest pasties in Michigan. We continue making pasties today with the same recipe and the best ingredients available so our customers can count on getting the same great pasties year after year. A trip to Northern Michigan is not complete without a Pastie from Hunt's Mackinaw Pastie & Cookie Co.
My goodness, this place is awesome. Not a lot of variety in the menu, but if you want to try a food that is historically known in the area, try this restaurant. Extremely friendly service, and the pasties are tasty and filling. Wasn't sure what to expect, but I could visit here a time or two a week if I lived in the area.
