High end Brunch

put a fancy twist on a metro Detroit classic and call it Hudson Cafe. I saw familiar favorites with a little added flair all across the menu. the place is usually packed, but even still, the waitstaff manages to provide consistently good service.

Living in downtown Detroit for the summer and heard this is the best breakfast place. I think my husband and I should have gotten both an egg dish and a bread dish but I got the chunky monkey pancakes and he got the graham crusted french toast. My pancakes were delicious but HUGE! We still have some leftover after eating... More

We were in the D and looking for some breakfast and found this place. We were very impressed. The omelettes are incredible. Everything we tried was so good. Great service. Good prices. Can't wait to go back again.

We loved the breakfast here. There were a bunch of us, all ordering different things, and we all loved what we got. Big portions. I had the Voo Doo benny. Homemade corncake with poached eggs, ranchero sauce... so good... Would recommend it to everyone.

This spot features generous breakfast portions. Eggs, pancakes, waffles . . . pick your pleasure. My eggs came with potatoes and bacon and a choice of toast or . . . pancakes! Delicious! So fluffy, and the syrup served hot. Very reasonable considering the quantity and quality.

I've been here a few times and it does not disappoint. I've always gone and had breakfast type foods. Omelettes are excellent- for your bread, you can get toast or pancakes and for your side, potatoes, fruit or grits. When you eat here, come hungry. A meal here is more expensive than a coney island type place, but it's worth... More

We had the Corned Beef Hash and Eggs Benedict. Both dishes were very well done. The service was excellent. The restaurant was empty of other diners at about 2 pm on a sunny Thursday. The restaurant closes at 3 pm, Monday through Thursday. There is parking very near the restaurant. We unwisely parked on the street about 3 1/2 blocks... More

My wife and ate breakfast 2 days in a row at the Hudson. The food was fantastic and the service was great. We had omelets and decided to try the red velvet pancakes which were life changing! It's clean, classy and has a creative menu. It's also a terrific addition to the Woodward renaissance. Check it out - you won't... More

This place was great! Super busy which usually means it will be good! Very attentive service, fast delivery of the food and extremely tasty. The corned beef hash was really good.
