Steve and Jennifer Nowicki opened Shipwreck Cafe in June of 2017. They wanted to bring a new, alternative dining choice to Empire, the Gateway to the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Together with their daughters, Hannah (23) and Rebecca (20), they are proud of the reputation they are building of delicious food, in a friendly family atmosphere.
