Stir fry is great! So is the chopped sirloin and the omelets! This restaurant has recently been remodeled with new owners. Truly a gem in our little city.

The owners, Laura and Pete and their family and children, work very hard to provide excellent breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. All American food made with good, locally-sourced and wholesome ingredients. They will stand on their head trying to please you. Seniors get a 10% discount, the place is clean and the menu is varied. Wonderful for friends or family and... More

I've only eaten breakfast, they serve fiber type food. Breakfast is average nothing great, I get omelette'somelette' s, the Western omelet has too many peppers&onions and not enough meat. They also cook the ingredients mix in the egg not stuffed inside the egg. Overall, a good enough spot to grab a simple quick bite

Went to The Oakwood Cafe for breakfast twice on trip to Detroit area. Service and food were both excellent! One of the few places I've been to lately that can properly cook bacon so that is crispy but not over cooked.

This is the best breakfast joint around. You can get one of several breakfast specials for $4. Including eggs,toast, meat and potatoes. Any beverage adds $2 to the bill so I drink water here. Good friendly service and staff.
