Honestly, it's about impossible to beat the Crow's Nest food, which includes fresh baked breads and yummy sweet potato fries as well as amazing burgers, vegetarian fare, and breakfast greats. But . . . three problems can interfere with one's dining experience. 1) Because the restaurant is upstairs and no handicapped access exists, it's not a good place for the elderly or those who can't walk up a steep flight of stairs; 2) the restaurant is above a nice coffee shop, so if a diner wants any special coffee drink, the diner--not a server--will need to run downstairs and bring the coffee drink back; 3) on some days, the wait can be soooo long because there's just not enough space. But if one gets a table and will drink the Crow's Nest's own fine coffee, one may become a regular.

My daughter recently moved to Chicago; I still live in Detroit. We decided to meet in Kalamazoo which is the halfway point for both of us. We had lunch at Crow's Nest---what a pleasant surprise! The food was was very tasty! My daughter and I have decided that Crow's Nest will be our meeting spot at least once per month. Can't wait to see my daughter and to have lunch at Crow's Nest! Yum!

Place is located in a more residential part of Kalamazoo. Some Parking space is available.

The restaurant is on the first floor, above a coffee shop (where you can get a special coffee in case you do not want the regular coffee served at Crow's Nest). It's a simple place, not specially decorated or designed with style. Just 'plain american rural countryside style with no thrills'.

The menu is elaborate and diverse and has a lot of options.
Food is very good and plates are generous in quantity.
Prices are very reasonable for the quantity you get.

It's one of these typical american breakfast/brunch places that attract large crowds, mainly because of the good quality and large portions. Make reservations in the weekends or come early as there are large waiting lines!
