I have been here twice,and both times very cooked from scratch changing menus specials. Would expect weekends would be a wait for a table,so go midweek if retired etc. Even serves alcohol if you want it. Somewhat pricey, but hey,this isn't fast food place.

Been here several times and seems that this place is no longer what it used to be. Came here for dinner with a small group. At the end of dinner at 8 pm, we were the only ones at the place. The food was also underwhelming. Nothing was spectacular, just a bit off. Service was great but that's about the... More

Took friends out for their birthday and we ended up ordering breakfast. Simple food with a 'twist' that's really good. Some day I want to try their lunch menu!

The food here always borders between very good and great. Always a solid lunch choice. Reasonably priced. Nice spot for business lunch. Highly recommended

We are new to the area & read great things about this place so we're excited to try it for brunch. We were very disappointed with our experience. The service was awful & food just average. We waited 45 mins for food to come out after ordering & had to ask 3 people for ketchup before we received any. Doubt... More

We had our very first book club meeting here and they were extremely accommodating. The food and drinks were great and the atmosphere was amazing.

A group of 4 of us met at noon on Sunday for brunch. It took about a half hour to get a table - we expected to wait much longer. Next time, we'll make a reservation though. I love this restaurant because their menu is so creative, and they serve a lot of local and organic foods, and list out... More

We found out about Cafe Muse when a group of friends were looking for a place to eat before or after a play. It was perfect. A wide selection of foods, allowing people with varying dietary requirements to find something delicious to eat!

I visited while reuniting with some Detroit, MI neighborhood friends. I loved the high ceilings and large windows, enabling us to people watch. Since I am on weight watchers, I selected spinach salad and mushroom soup. My friends ordered the "Oprah award winning" grilled cheese!!

I ate here for brunch on Christmas Eve with a friend who was in town. They told me it would be about 20 minutes for a table, but I was seated within 5 minutes or so. The service was a bit slow, but the Cafe Latte was delicious. I ordered the Plain Jane scramble and would get it again. Note... More
