Excellent service, coffee, and breakfasts. We love their inspired daily specials. This is not your modern chain restaurant by any means, but a wonderful, home-cooking local cafe that reminds us of the good old days.

I like this place ! Sausage gravy and biscuits is one of my favorites, but usually bland or canned. I had the Green Acres skillet with my bread as a biscuit so I could try the gravy. Everything was great, service (Sheila) was fantastic. The...More

We enjoyed a late lunch at The Red Geranium (near Kentwood) on the way back to Kalamazoo from the airport. We wanted a local restaurant, not something we could find in any town. The Red Geranium was perfect with hospitality, a varied menu and cheerful...More

The Red Geranium Café is one of 16 restaurants owned and operated by local restaurateur Jeff Lobdell. The original location was on Michigan St. in beautiful downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Responding to a growing demand in local flavor, Red Geranium soon expanded south to the Wyoming and Kentwood areas. We pride ourselves on our delicious food made from only the freshest ingredients daily. Stop in and see what the local chatter is all about!
