Colmar, France is a beautiful village in the heart of the Alsace wine region of France. This village is famous for many things, such as being the inspiration behind the village in Beauty and the Beast, it was the home of the creator of the Stature of Liberty Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, and is filled with tiny canals, earning it the moniker “Little Venice”. Located about one hour across the French and German border, this small town was full of classic French cuisine and specialty wines, beautiful gift shops, and brightly colored buildings.

While I could make this list a mile long, I’m sharing my very favorite places. As I try new restaurants and explore more cities in Michigan, I’ll be compiling a part II, so if you don’t see your favorite place listed here, leave a comment and I’ll go check it out!

As soon as we set foot into the bakery/restaurant, it was as though we were transported to another world, one where time moved slowly.

Prost, which means “cheers” in German, is a relatively new wine bar and charcuterie joint in Little Bavaria, aka Frankenmuth, MI.
