  • Emily G.The Cinnabon pancakes, very very French toast, and any omelet! Service is great, even when they mess up. The owner, Tom, gave us this "little appetizer" on the house when there was an incident.

  • Ricky S.Good for breakfast an you have to try the red velvet pancakes....the are best as a shared dish for the table.

    55555 by Ricky S.

  • Erinn SStuffed Berry French Toast was by far the best French toast I've ever had. Boyfriend got the gluten free version and said they were amazing. He loved the selection for gluten free items. Will be back.

    55555 by Erinn S

    55555 by Sobia Akhtar

  • Niki B.After being rudely greeted at Le Petite Zinc,we headed here. It did not take them long to accommodate a party of 6 and our waiter, David, provided us with great recommendations and our food was tasty!

    33333 by Niki B.

  • Marina CarvalhoVery good food but there is always a waiting period

    55555 by Marina Carvalho

  • Kirstyn DowneyGrahm cracker crusted French toast was heavenly. Toffee coffee was alright, but service was extremely slow. I didn't get my coffee until I was nearly done with my food. I guess it's just too busy..

    22222 by Kirstyn Downey

  • Rachel H.Great food! Baja omelet was delicious. Great service.

    55555 by Rachel H.

  • Kate H.Go for the off-menu BLT -- big and tasty and beautiful. Get a side salad with Maurice dressing and be happy for life.

    55555 by Kate H.

  • Chow Down DetroitYou can get the silver dollar size red velvet pancakes instead of getting a full order.

    33333 by Chow Down Detroit

  • JenYou will likely have a wait, but it will be worth it. You can't go wrong with the menu, but the French toast options are out of this world!

    55555 by Jen

  • Kate H.So-so menu, long lines and disinterested staff. Don't know why people line up here on the weekends. And no liquor license! Try Fountain Bistro or Dime Store instead.

    33333 by Kate H.

  • Cedric TngDelicious and huge platters ! The omlet are amazing !

    55555 by Cedric Tng

  • Anna S.Great place for breakfast/brunch. Price is reasonable.

    33333 by Dylan B.

  • Danone CuretonIs that french toast below? Uhh...no. That's graham cracker crusted french toast w/ cream cheese drizzle!

    55555 by Danone Cureton

  • Danone CuretonHere's a tip...in a group of say like 3-4 people, 1 HALF order of the red velvet pancakes is more than enough to go around. Best red velvet pancakes money can buy btw!

    55555 by Danone Cureton

  • Tommy V.Yummy food

    55555 by Tommy V.

  • Brandi DavieIf you really like and know grits, you can pass on these. They're just cooked with cheese on top, no real seasoning done.

    33333 by Brandi Davie

    33333 by walter blake k.

  • Hol L.Interesting - description says "no reservations." While waiting on a very crowded Sat., we had 2 reservations before us - 12 and 8. The table for 12 was sitting empty for over 30 min. before they came

    22222 by Hol L.

  • Hol L.Service was slow. Food: mediocre. Host was all over the place - trying to do everyone else's job. No one knows how to wipe down a table, nor chairs/benches. Needless to say, I was NOT impressed.

    22222 by Hol L.
