You truly cannot go wrong here, no matter the time or day but I recommend coming during brunch on Saturday and Sundays where they promote their "Brunch Unplugged". Combined with fantastic eats, warm drinks and great conversation, this is your ideal spot in Ann Arbor.

This place is very good for both a quick meal or coffee, and for chilling out. Coffee is really good, and food is delicious, but somewhat pricey.

The ginger tea, hot cider, various lattes and coffees are excellent as are the pastries which are made on premises. I love the tofu sandwich and the caprese salad sandwich. The tables and booths are appealing. There is Wifi except on Sat and Sunday during brunch. A sweet place to relax.

Today was my first visit. The young lady at the counter could tell this was our first visit and asked if we needed help. She took time to walk us through the menu options, specials and how the restaurant works. Order at the counter, pick your table place your order number visible and they'll deliver your food.

We visited the Songbird Cafe on a whim on our way into Ann Arbor. There was not a huge selection on the menu, but I chose a breakfast sandwich which turned out to be wonderful! It was the best breakfast sandwich I have had in a long time. The service was also excellent, with a smiling cheerful cashier and server.... More

We were surprised at the quality at this cafe within a strip mall. My vanilla Chai latte with my cornmeal fruit topped waffle were the perfect start to our day. The service was friendly and fast. It got pretty busy on the weekend but you can order carryout if you choose not to wait.

Interesting new combinations of flavors in both coffee and pastries. We had a rose latte and a vanilla lavender latte (a bit too sweet for my tastes but still nicely different) one time, and on a different occasion a hazelnut chocolate swirl brownie and a green tea ginger muffin... both excellent and fresh. Also an excellent selection of gluten free... More

This cafe has a limited menu, but everything on it - whether it is breakfast or lunch - is high quality. The staff is very willing to personalize your order with +/ - ingredients. Try the 3 cheese sandwich with apple butter - sublime!

I regularly meet a friend here for coffee. The staff is nice and the coffee is hot and delicious. Not sure if they give free refills, although I'd REALLY like that since we spend a few hours there each time...
