I love the eclectic, yet not overwhelming way in which this spot is decorated. I also loved the hole in the wall feeling. If you have a wait, you can always hang out in the coffee shop downstairs. If you like vegetarian, there were many options. We went on a double date, and everyone enjoyed their food.

Great place to hang out and study, grab a bite (vegans welcome) and relax. Had a great boho, college feel. Very friendly people working there. My one complaint is the steep steps to get up. As a person with a medical condition that makes stairs difficult, I wish this spot was more handicapable so I could visit more.

Please try Crow's Nest. Please. There can't be a better place to eat breakfast. Is it always busy? Yes. Is the dining area cramped? Yes. Is the food and service the best for breakfast you'll ever encounter? Easily. My go-to is the pulled pork eggs Benedict. But get anything. I've tried most of the menu and have never - not... More

Thought it was just due to a busy New Years Day, but turns out the line is usually that long to get in. Small restaurant but huge flavors and portions. Very very yummy.

Delicious breakfast food at fine prices served all day. This means that if you want brunch at dinner time on Saturday, this is your place. There's also lunch food, but I rarely stray from breakfast here. The only drawback is that there is sometimes a wait, and the service can sometimes be slow and inattentive. (Other times the service is... More

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!
