I really liked this place and the people are cool. The food is delicious and the service is fast. It's a bit pricey for breakfast, but walking around a city that is still in a state of decay to enter a place that is really nice, clean and comfortable is a nice break for the mind... I mean this place... More

I am a pancake nut! I almost never order pancakes out because I love my own. These are huge are delicious, definitively enough to share. We were in town for the weekend and ate here twice. The omelettes were just as large and delicious.

Service is good but our food was under cooked. And flavor was not the greatest. Atmosphere is nice, but it took a long to be seated. Maybe next time we will try something different from the Manu.

The breakfast quality and portioning is excellent. The omelets are huge and the Red Velvet pancakes are the jam. The salads and sandwiches are excellent as well. Service is okay.

Had the French Toast w/fruit topping. I also added a side of eggs. The French toast came to the table just like the pic. The fruit was FRESH and chilled not cold. The toast was very warm not hot. The eggs were fluffy and light. Can't miss with this Downtown Detroit breakfast stop! Upon leaving, there was a line 10... More

First timer to Hudson Cafe. Little hard to find; lots of street construction going on. Extensive menu. Moderate prices. Loved the shredded corned beef hash and eggs. Good coffee. Very attentive service. Nice varied crowd dining when I was there. Will be back.

Wonderful graham cracker french toast, but it was, as warned by the server, very sweet. No syrup was needed. Coffee was great and plentiful. Service was excellent. Not much more you could ask for! Definitely worth a visit.

Today I ran my first half marathon in Detroit. After we went to Hudson Cafe. Our server Dave was very knowledgable about everything on the menu and had a great sense of humour. I had the very berry French toast with fresh squeezed orange juice. It was delicious. My daughter had the same think but had gluten free very berry... More

Fun menu. We were there for breakfast. Wait staff was nice. Their potatoes were not good, but everything else was ok.

This is a very busy place. They give you big portions and they're very creative with their food combinations but it he food was mediocre.
