The ‘small town feel’: Cranberries Cafe in Goodrich featured in Flint Journal

Cranberries Cafe, a fixture in the quaint little village of Goodrich in southeastern Genesee County, was featured in The Flint Journal today. Cranberries is one of the sponsors of the Flint CVB’s annual Hospitality Awards as well as the annual Marketplace Luncheon.

I can testify only to the quality of their desserts and, for what it’s worth, they were incredible.

Back in 2001 when Patty Plant and landlord William Rausch converted a little deli into a full-fledged dinner house, I harbored a grandiose vision for the village.

With subdivisions going up all around, I saw Goodrich as the new Clarkston. They didn’t seek that kind of bustle and neither do any of the people who have frequented Cranberries Cafe in the interim.

“Coming here, I think people feel like they’re going back to when the pace was slower and more people lived in small towns,” Plant says.
