Froehlich’s in Edible Michiana

When Colleen Froehlich bought a wreck of a Victorian-era building in downtown Three Oaks almost two decades ago, there were few viable businesses around. Now the charming storefronts are filled with eclectic art galleries, restaurants and boutiques and Froehlich’s (named after her grandparents’ grocery store in St. Joseph, Michigan) has had a turn on the Food Channel’s “Food Finds” and been featured in national food magazines.

Farm to Table, Pantry and Party

Delicious jams, jellies, sauces, spreads and relishes line the shelves of this perfect little small-town café and market. Everything, including the amazing scratch-made breads, is made on site in Froehlich’s large sunny kitchen, often using produce from Froehlich’s own farm.

Hi Drew - I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for the wonderful job you did with my order! Your cake was the hit of the party and everybody loved it (along with all the other "goodies" I ordered)! I also appreciate the vegan cupcakes you made. I definitely wanted my friend to be included in the desserts and she was very appreciative! I would definitely recommend using your services to anyone planning any sort of gathering, or even for a treat for themselves! Thanks again, Dee -Dee
"Great food!" This place is wonderful. Check out the jams and olive spread! The quiche is excellent. Prices are very reasonable.-Anna
Love this place! The food is fresh and tasty, and there are lots of goodies to take with you too. Love stopping here when I'm in the area.-Elizabeth
Cute place with great noshings! We have friends who live nearby, and have always heard them talk about Froelich's. We were visiting and that afternoon were in the mood for some coffee and maybe an interesting noshing. Well, this certainly was the place for that. The coffee was really good, and while there had a slice of delicious chocolate cake. They were a little bit on the pricey side, but it was worth the splurge. Loved the cute vintage decor and wide selection of offerings from interesting packaged foods, trinkets, kitchen gadgets, homemade potholders, and of course fresh baked goods, sandwiches, (soups too I think), deviled eggs, etc. Also loved the tables by the window to enjoy your coffee & treats. Have fun with this shop! We will definitely go back.-Laura
Excellent Food & Coffee! In this cute shop everything was delicious. I'm very particular about hazelnut lattes and theirs was superb. I also thoroughly enjoyed their bagels and special St. Paddy's Irish donuts. Well worth the stop.-Viya
Stopped here on our way from Chicago to Saugatuck.

It's a really cute little place full of homemade jams, sauces, relishes, spreads and a variety of other things, the girls working there are incredibly nice and helpful, making it a very welcoming place. I ordered the mediterranean tuna sandwich on mutligrain and my partner went with a ham and cheese panini. I loved my sandwich; the tuna was mixed with a tasty vinaigrette, fresh tomatoes, onions, artichokes and celery, the bread was probably made that morning because it was too delicious and soft to be even a day old. 

There are several tables outside and a few tables indoors. We went late in the afternoon and it wasn't crowded so we found seats easily and our sandwiches were ready in about 10 minutes.-Natalie
Froehlich's made all the pies and personal galettes for my wedding this summer. We loved planning and working with Timothy so much we decided to have them also cater the breakfast the day after the wedding. The pies were out of this world. They let us pick and choose which fruit pies we would like and even let me add on a chocolate chess pies, per my sister's request, which people could not stop talking about. It's pretty much like eating a brownie pie. The breakfast quiche and muffuletta were devoured and the bagels and cream cheese/jam.... OH the JAM, were perfect for guests on the go. Timothy was an absolute delight to work with and made it SO easy I barely had to think about the dessert and breakfast. Everything went off without a hitch and endless praise, except I was told I didn't order enough muffuletta. Live and Learn. I never had a chance to try the galettes they were gone within an hour. Love this place. Also, give the Mediterranean Tuna Sandwich a shot if you stop in. It is mayo free with large chunks of tuna, celery, tomato. Yummerz.-Kate
This little spot is worth the (short) drive from Chicago. The owner (Colleen Froehlich) grows much of what she uses to hand-make her incredible jams, sauces, soups, salads, pickles and spreads. Don't miss the baked goods, especially the rosemary flat bread (good luck making it home without gobbling it up!). Delicious breakfast items that ranges from egg sandwiches (she also sells eggs that come from her son's chickens!) to amazing fresh-baked breads, muffins, bagels and cinnamon rolls. Lunch includes homemade soups (gazpacho in the summer is amazing), salads and sandwiches. Come for a meal and leave with some jars of hand-crafted deliciousness. And Three Oaks is a charming little town. Enjoy!-Cathy
Excellent place! Might just bake the best bread I have ever had. Everything very good. Super friendly service. I would kill for the cinnamon buns.-Bob
A tasty retreat we will visit again! Atmosphere as warm as the pastries!-Aaron
The best coconut macaroons I have ever had and I have had many!-Cynthia
I go here every week! I love everything about this place! Excited for the new venture across the street to open up!-Samuel
I really enjoyed finding Froehlich's. The decor is very comfortable, the food was tasty and I really liked the Sandwich Chutney. They have lovely gifts and cards for sale and lots of home-made goodies! The staff there were all very nice people.-Dan
“My favorite place to eat in Michigan! Phenomenal food and wonderful people. Stop in if you are in Three Oaks. So worth it.”-Jeanne
