About Us...

Paula and her two daughters, Angela and Rita, opened Apple Knockers' doors on September 11, 2009.  Located in the beautiful, historic village of Vicksburg, Michigan, Apple Knockers has become a local favorite. The menu reflects an array of homemade family recipes, like their Mean Jean Pasties and Mamma's Mac & Cheese, to good ole fashion comfort food, like 1/4 all beef hot dogs and hamburgers. They feature over 50+ flavors of ice cream from Plainwell Ice Cream, which is made in Plainwell, Michigan, and Ashby's Sterling Ice Cream which is made in Shelby Township, Michigan. The staff supports the local community by graciously donating all of their tips to local charities and community organizations. In 2012, MLive.com conducted a statewide search for the 10 best ice cream parlors. Apple Knockers is proud to have been voted the third best ice cream parlor in the entire state of Michigan!


In addition to Apple Knockers, Paula, Angela, and Rita have recently opened Windfall Coffeehouse located just down the street at 625 W. Prairie St. You can check them out at windfallcoffeehouse.com!

Windfall Coffeehouse

With Apple Knockers being located right down town Vicksburg, we offer limited indoor seating, garden patio deck seating, and our famous dog parking!  All within walking distance to other local favorites like parks, shops and more!
