Where everybody knows your name! Like having breakfast in a friend's kitchen because that is how the staff and owner treat you. Everything on the menu is delicious for lunch or breakfast. Nothing is spared on the serving size. Expect a wait on Sundays, but...More

Very good! Friendly staff! I was having surgery so I could only have broth so they separated all the chicken and vegetables for me!

A small restaurant, but the breakfast is amazing. I normally have an omelet that has dill, Havarti cheese, tomatoes in it that is my staple. It's not always advertised on the daily specials, but ask for it. Most of the time they can make it....More

Open from 7AM to 3PM. Unusual menu of breakfast and lunch selections. Creme Brulet French toast is my favorite, but eggs benedict is a close second.

if you love pancakes the Michigan pancakes they serve are excellent. Lots of cherries, slices of apples, and walnuts in them. My husband orders their omelets but I always stick to the pancakes. Food cost is the average as other places to eat.

The food is delicious and staff is super friendly. They have a variety of foods from breakfast to salads to sandwiches - everything I've ever tried has been delicious!

Downtown Cafe offers wonderful and unique breakfast and lunch dishes. Generally a bit of a wait but certainly worth the time to queue up and chat with your friends and locals until you are seated indoors or out, depending on the season. You should go!

A small comfortable eatery with both inside and outdoor seating, this small restaurant offers varied breakfast choices in a most pleasant environment. The omelets were beautifully prepared and presented and the Michigan pancakes (with Michigan cherries and apples) were equally outstanding. This is a comfortable...More
