The menu is very simple and boring. It's rated as one of the best in Kalamazoo, but that is because it is overrated by the people of Kalamazoo. The food is good, not excellent, but good. The atmosphere is alright, it's not bad at all. The waitresses at this restaurant are friendly and the food doesn't take longer than it... More

This restaurant is amazing for both breakfast and lunch! No where else can you get grilled zucchini or banana bread instead of toast. Everything is fresh, homemade and delicious. Unfortunately, the word is out and many love their menu, so get there early or plan to wait in line. They also serve breakfast at lunch....another bonus!

Biggest complaint was having to choose from so many delicious options! Daughter had the grilled chicken sandwich and I had the Greek salad. Couldn't resist a Greek salad that includes the regular items AND broccoli & artichoke hearts. Service was quick and pleasant and the coffee refills kept coming.

Great French toast. Easy going, college vibe place. Lots of students having a cup of coffee. Great political discussions. I love it!

Such good homemade food. But a limited menu, don't bring anyone picky here. Gets very crowded, so bring your patience or go at off times. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Probably one of the top 5 restaurants in Kalamazoo.

We had to wait in line for a bit but it was WELL worth it! The food was incredible and the service was great. I loved the local art on the walls and the overall decor/vibe of the restaurant. Will definitely be going back!

Absolutely the best breakfast we've ever had. So good, we went 2 mornings in a row! I got the biscuits and gravy and they are fantastic. My husband got the Captain's Ration omelet and he loved it. But the best part has to be the breakfast potatoes with the red pepper aioli!! The service is fantastic and everyone is very... More

My son discovered this great little restaurant. Food was good. I had the special french toast with coffee grounds. It was just ok. My daughter's banana bread french toast was to die for. Lots of caramel sauce. The Mediterranean omelet was great with olives and feta cheese. My son's biscuits and gravy was oozing out with gravy. Will return next... More
