Inside the Kitchen: Paper Station Bistro in Harbor Springs

From beautiful scratch-made barbecue to a new way to eat a Northern Michigan staple–the people at Paper Station Bistro take pride in everything they do.

The restaurant took shape last summer in what used to be a hub for newspaper distribution, hence the name. 

Here, they cook a mean perch appetizer, sliced thin, wrapped in applewood smoked bacon and dunked in the fryer. The Great Lakes Perch Bites crisp up in the oven and get a double dose of the Paper Station’s house made citrus BBQ sauce.

From there, we graduate to the main event–the bistro’s take on the ever popular Cuban sandwich, featuring the traditional ham and pickle with two welcome additions: slow roasted, special recipe pulled pork and the topper, a Fuji apple slaw.

Whatever your craving, Paper Station is a sure cure!
