Birthday deal

They do a great deal for birthdays (free entrée), and the food is well worth it. The dishes are more filling than they appear. I got a mocha, which came with a lot of whipped cream, which I loved. The raisin French toast was very delicious as well. Service was friendly.

This little "local's place" has the best breakfast in Ann Arbor. Make sure to try the potato pancakes!

We were visiting Ann Arbor and decided to have breakfast at one of old favorites. Breakfast was very good as usual. I had Raisin French Toast which I enjoyed. Maybe could have been a little thicker. In any event, it gets my props.

I recently ate at this restaurant for the third time ever, and my impression has always been the same. Why oh why do people stand in line out the door to get in here? The food is quite unexceptional, and borderline weird. My potato pancakes were semi-runny with an eggy texture (too thick and undercooked, very little of that crispy... More

Northside serves up high quality comfort food for breakfast and lunch. It's not gourmet. It's simple and fresh. That's what I and any other Ann Arbor locals like about it. When I craved comfort and normalcy on Sept. 12, 2001, I went to Northside. I particularly like going out for breakfast. I can't comment on the lunch items on Northside's... More

This place is small but feels very homey, unpretentious, and down-to-earth. There aren't that many tables and booths, so it can get pretty crowded at peak hours and on weekends. The servers are friendly and attentive, and you get your order quickly. We have eaten here numerous times and love to bring out-of-town guests here to experience this unique little... More

My favorite breakfast/brunch place. Fun atmosphere, beautiful patio seating, delicious food--unique twists on traditional breakfast favorites, everything fresh and so well made. And GREAT coffees! If you go on a weekend morning, you might get to see the orange juicer in action, which is just cool.

With Elvis singing in the background my wife and I enjoyed our first breakfast at Northside Grill. My huevos rancheros was good though a bit too large for my taste. My wife's western omelet required hot sauce to give it some flavor. The service was excellent. Sitting outside we couldn't hear much of Elvis but what we did hear was... More

Northside Grill is one of the oldest restaurant in Ann Arbor. Their food and service both are wonderful.
