We walked from The Cadillac Hotel and it 10 minutes max. Good breakfast and fresh ingredients. A few twists on the normal breakfast foods made it interesting. On a Monday at 10ish it was no wait. Reasonable price for a Downtown Detroit place.

We generally share a breakfast here, the portions are enormous. The service is efficient and attentive. Food is unusual and offers many varieties of breakfast favorites. They have added their special touches to the food items, Great spot for both the meal and people watching.

The Hudson Cafe, a few blocks from our hotel, was THE DESTINATION for a yummy start to the day. We visited three times while working in Detroit! The Buttermilk Pancakes and the Eggs Benedict were superb. Wish there was one in Houston, TX.

Located on one of the MAIN thoroughfares of the city, making NEARBY parking VERY tough. Limited seating makes a 10 minute wait a lucky draw. BUT FEAR NOT, follow Jimmy Fallon, Mark Wahlberg and my advice get yourself a Toffee Coffee, and strike up a...More

I believe it's first come, first served. We didn't try reservations and in fact waited in line out the door on one visit.
