A small restaurant, but the breakfast is amazing. I normally have an omelet that has dill, Havarti cheese, tomatoes in it that is my staple. It's not always advertised on the daily specials, but ask for it. Most of the time they can make it. Fresh squeezed orange juice, great hash browns (not the frozen shredded kind), and very courteous... More

Take out here is a family tradition for us on Mother's Day and Father's Day. The creme brulee french toast weighs about 5 pounds on the plate and you WILL eat every last bite. Totally worth it! This is a tiny place so expect a wait if you want to eat in. They do have a nice little patio open... More

Outstanding food all the way around. Its hard to beat so expect a wait on any given weekend morning, especially when the weather is good and you can sit outside. the best breakfast spot around!!

Open from 7AM to 3PM. Unusual menu of breakfast and lunch selections. Creme Brulet French toast is my favorite, but eggs benedict is a close second.

if you love pancakes the Michigan pancakes they serve are excellent. Lots of cherries, slices of apples, and walnuts in them. My husband orders their omelets but I always stick to the pancakes. Food cost is the average as other places to eat.

Downtown Cafe offers wonderful and unique breakfast and lunch dishes. Generally a bit of a wait but certainly worth the time to queue up and chat with your friends and locals until you are seated indoors or out, depending on the season. You should go!

A small comfortable eatery with both inside and outdoor seating, this small restaurant offers varied breakfast choices in a most pleasant environment. The omelets were beautifully prepared and presented and the Michigan pancakes (with Michigan cherries and apples) were equally outstanding. This is a comfortable place to return to on a regular basis and sure to sate almost any appetite.... More

The food here is always delicious and the service is with a smile! The restaurant is small but has an outdoor seating area which is great in good weather. The restaurant is next to a Hungary Howie's Pizzeria and parking is on the side and back. Well worth the trip!
