The Pixie Restaurant

Travel back to the days of cruisin’, coney dogs, neon and juke box rock n’ roll with The Pixie Restaurant. The Pixie is fun with great food-fast! A deep tradition , quality and community involvement all add up to the spirit of the Pixie. The Pixie Restaurant opened in 1948 and was the first drive-in restaurant in Mt. Pleasant. At that time, the operation consisted of curb service with a complete menu. “Car Hops” would wait on customers in their cars and bring their food to them on trays which attached to the window. Today, the Pixie Restaurant has the 50’s/60’s neon look and a dining room with a 50’s juke box, memorabilia and the same great food and service the Pixie has made famous for nearly 60 years.

From Cars to Burgers . . .
1948 was the year the late Norman LaBelle decided he would have more fun running a restaurant than selling used cars, and the result was the opening of the Pixie Restaurant. Complete with car-hop waitresses and great inexpensive food, the Pixie quickly became a popular place with both the local population and the fast growing enrollment at Central Michigan University. The Pixie restaurant is where LaBelle Management started.
