Nice Breakfast Place

We hadn't been here in a few years and decided to try it out with our son who is attending the U of M. Very nice selection of omelettes and pancake offerings. Only downer is finding a place to park. The parking garage nearby had the upper level closed so after driving through it looking for a place... read more

In town to savor A2 and all the delights of this great place. Lived here quite a while way back when. I went to this restaurant with my brother and his family on a Sunday morning and was delighted, actually, to wait. A packed house being a good sign. Omelet NO complaints. Too much to eat and therefore one meal... More

Average food, uncomfortable ventilation is cold and blows directly on you. English muffin was tough, raisin toast mediocre, omelette with chorizo was good. Over priced and cannot recommend.

Most money I have ever spent on breakfast and I have had breakfast at a 5 Star restaurant in Ireland! There were four of us and our bill came to over $70. Eggs, we had eggs? Not caviar eggs, chicken eggs. Hash browns undercooked. It has a reputation that it doesn't live up to. Not sure what the draw is... More

Food was great (hash browns perfect done), service was great (friendly and attentive), but the ambiance was so horrible I couldn't stay there more than was absolutely necessary. At a minimum, the worn, stained carpet needs to be replaced with hard surface flooring and the whole place repainted. Replace all burnt out light bulbs. School pennants are not decor. Never... More

This is a long time breakfast spot in downtown Ann Arbor. Decent breakfasts but service can be spotty. Tables could use a good cleaning. Menus were dirty. Restrooms are down a flight of stairs so that could be difficult for some. Love the University of Michigan memorabilia.

Stopped by for lunch take out. I ordered their tuna melt and a cheese burger for my wife. We won't do that again. The prices were extremely reasonable, but the quality of the food was poor. First, the tuna melt was very greasy and bland. The hamburger with three cheeses and bacon was just ok, also very greasy. we'd certainly... More

This place is a nice gem where most students don't go, so it's not crowded. The chocolate chip pancakes are large and thick, and they come with plenty of chocolate. The order came with 3 pancakes, but I only needed half that order to be full and satisfied. The hot chocolate also comes with an absolute tower of whipped cream.
