The Bird and The Bear have quickly solidified their reputation as the place to go for breakfast or lunch in Higgins Lake. The food is always fresh and homemade, and Jim is an excellent chef. Nancy and staff make the front of house feel like home. Doughnuts and cookies and pies are delicious! And the coffee is actually AWESOME. It’s so hard to find an actual good cup of coffee up here and B&B nailed it! Nancy and Jim are passionate about what they’re doing, and always looking for ways to improve and grow the business. We’re lucky to have Bird and Bear here at Higgins Lake.

About Us

Jim and Nancy Miller

Store Owners

Jim and Nancy Miller never dreamed that they would be giving up everything to follow their dreams to Higgins Lake, but that's just how The Bird and The Bear began. What started as just a camping trip to South Higgins Lake State Park, ended with the 2 of them uprooting and moving to a small community in Northern Michigan. From day 1, Jim and Nancy have been committed to not only serving quality, food made from scratch, but also providing a place for their community to gather and fellowship together. A place where "everybody knows your name!"

However, due to recent circumstances happening worldwide, things have changed in the restaurant business. Jim and Nancy are still committed to what they originally set out to do, but it has now taken on a brand new look. Providing locally sourced food and other items to their customers, as well as continuing to provide high quality food from the kitchen, has become their focus.  


Located next to the hardware store on the Northwest corner of Robinson Lake Road and North Cut Road.  We're the big white building, kitty corner from Town and Country gas station!
