I have 2 favorites at this restaurant, but all the food is amazing. Their breakfast specialties are terrific...I have the Garden Benedict (think that is the name) with Hollandaise Sauce. It comes with breakfast potatoes (small, cubed potatoes, perfectly spiced) and a side of applesauce (like a dessert! We always come home stuffed. We have also tried it for dinner... More

A true gourmet breakfast experience. We had a scrumptious breakfast and are only sorry that we only discovered this gem of a breakfast place so recently, even though it's only a stone's throw away from us! Food is fresh, plating is original and service is excellent - a family feel about the place. Don't miss their blackberry biscuits, if you... More

My wife and I and much of our family really enjoys Recipes. It's arguably the best restaurant for breakfast in the Detroit area. Their skillets are outstanding and certainly favorites. Their vegetables, cheeses, eggs, and home fried potatoes are amazing and melt in your mouth. But most of their breakfasts are great. And the setting and comfort of the restaurant... More

First visit here and we'll definitely be back soon! We started with the spring rolls, which were meticulously prepared and tasty. I enjoyed the Bandito Skillet, which was prepared skillfully with fresh ingredients and really hit the spot. Truly delicious! My date ordered the Pad Thai. The bell peppers in the Pad Thai was new to me, but he enjoyed... More

Food is amazing here and if you have the pleasure to visit please request Amber, she was awesome. We had the Roadster (Bacon, veggies, eggs and home fries) and Chuck Wagon (NY Strip Steak, veggies, eggs and home fries) Skillets and both was awesome and very filling. Service was quick and Amber always had a smile and we never needed... More

This place is a hidden gem. The food is delish and at decent prices! Especially, the hot chocolate, which is so yummy in a huge latte cup with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle done right. There are so many choices on the menu, from a unique take on the omelet, to a create your own, and tons of sides to... More

Excellent food and wonderful people that own this establishment....Bring a bottle of wine and relax and enjoy the meal....which are just wonderful....they are not open every night, however, so it pays to call!

Quiet little place that you'd drive right by if you didn't know better. Food was delicious ... prices were low .... and we had plenty to choose from on the menu. What's not to love about that? Yes, there was only one server working ... but there were only a few patrons in the restaurant. (Fingers crossed that business picks... More

I had read the good reviews for recipes. My wife and I were excited to try something new instead of going to our regular spot. We went for breakfast food, our favorite meal. I got pancakes, bacon, eggs and potatoes combo. First off my pancakes were super dry. I didn't even know it was possible to make dry pancakes, They... More

My husband and I decided to try Recipes one day while shopping for cars near by. It's tucked away in the end of a strip mall, so it's easy to miss. We visited on a Saturday morning around 8 am and walked in - only one other person was there, so we were a little nervous about what this said... More
