MacKinaw Pastie & Cookie
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.
O.M.G. Let this be your first stop after many long hours on the
road with only static on the radio and black bears waving to
you from the side of the road.
An outpost of hearty and delicious comfort food. Get the original
beef and a big side of gravy.
God Bless those Welsh Coal Miner's Wives who invented these
things lo those hundreds of years ago.
Easy to get to. Because they know you are half dead from the
long drive and the warm flat diet cokes you've been ingesting.
Did I mention that I love this place?
