One Old Place: Sleder's Celebrates Designation

One Old Place: Sleder's Celebrates Designation

By Ross Boissoneau

Sleder’s, has always felt like stepping back in time -- the long bar, the ice cream parlor chairs, the tin ceiling. Now locals can revel in the fact it doesn’t just look old – it actually is the oldest continuously operating restaurant in the state, having opened its doors in 1882.

The previous record-holder was the White Horse Inn in Metamora, east of Flint, which began operations in 1850. It was shuttered in 2012, and while new owners are planning to reopen it later this month, that two-year closure means the title will remain in Traverse City as long as Sleder’s stays open.

“There have been restaurants in older buildings, but not always operating as restaurants,” says Brian Cairns. He and his wife Deb have owned Sleder’s since 1992.  more
