The hardest part of restaurant was deciding on what to order. so many great choices for breakfast and lunch! Decided on the graham cracker French toast, and it was excellent. My wife had an omelet that was too big to eat in on sitting. Don't forget to order a side of their potatoes they are awesome. The service is top... More

Golden waffles with REAL Maple Syrup, crispy bacon, FRESHLY SQUEEZED OJ, great coffee, beautiful, fluffy omelets and a berry covered, cream cheese filled, stuffed french toast that was divine! GO!

Great food, generous servings, reasonable prices. I had eggs Benedict with some chorizo which was tasty. The place has a nice fresh atmosphere as well. I'll definitely be back.

Great place for breakfast. The food was all really good, and the portions are very large. The place has a vibrant energy.

We visited the Hudson Cafe based on the trip advisor reviews; unfortunately we were disappointed with the entire experience. First, when we entered we were told our wait would be 20 minutes. ..not too bad considering the obvious popularity. After about 30 minutes of waiting, and seeing folks being seated who arrived after us, we approached the hostess who informed... More

I was a little nervous about this restaurant based on a couple of the previous reviews concerning mediocre food and sub-standard service. Nothing coul dbe further than the truth. My 12 year old son and I came in for a Saturday brunch at 9:30 am and were promptly seated. I had the huevos ranchers and he had the full size... More

A lot was heard from this cafe but I was not able to visit it until my last trip to Detroit. Be aware that waiting for a table takes an average of 20 min, this could be avoided if you arrive early at 8:00 AM. Menu Items are waffles, french toast, hot cakes, omelette and fried eggs and with several... More

First and foremost my food was great. However, the family of fruit flies that lived in our booth was gross. Literally, had to cover my plate with a napkin. My coffes was never topped off or refilled. The waitress wasn't attentive or very helpful explaining menu options and had to be flagged down so we could get to go boxes.... More

We were here on Saturday morning at 10:30 and were told 30 minute wait for a table, no problem. We got our table on time, it was another 15 minutes to place our order and another 35 minutes to get food. That was just a little too long. Our server was average, showing up periodically. I assume the kitchen is... More
