Excellent cuisine and excellent service

Worth your time. The food and the service are second to none. The atmosphere is inviting. Try it once and you will become a regular customer. The Blossom & Son Roasters coffee is the perfect end to the perfect meal.

A warm wonderful intimate restaurant in downtown Battle Creek. The food is cooked fresh and tasty. Daily specials are varied. Dessert menu is always topnotch. Always hard to decide what to order.

My husband and I went to Malia's for our 15th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful experience! The food was the best we have ever had and the service was great too! We have a new favorite place!

The food at Malia's is unique. The dishes are somewhat typical but with a flare so that you don't even realize you are a typical dish. Presentation is awesome. A great place to eat. The staff is always friendly and is well versed in their menu and how the dishes are prepared.

I wish I could say something about the food but my wife and I went for dinner last Saturday arriving about 1 and a half hours before closing according to their posted service hours just to be told that they were closed due to having a very slow day.

Found this spot by accident during a street fair. Great food and a terrific staff (thanks Molly). Not a lot of tables so call ahead just in case.

While traveling, I had a stop over in Battle Creek. My expectations were rather low in terms of food, but the hotel suggested I try Malia. I called, and even though they stop seating at 8pm the night I was in town, they were more than happy to seat my group at 7:45. Upon arrival there was a friendly greeter... More
