I've been to Red Geranium twice. It's now one of my go-to restaurants. The first time I went was for breakfast on a Sunday morning. There was a line, but it was expected. The staff was friendly and attentive. My breakfast burrito and biscuits and gravy were delicious. The second time was for lunch with my wife...for $8 I got... More

They have great, fast service and delicious food. I was pleased to see a lighter, low calorie option on the menu. In the fall, try the pumpkin pancakes! Even saw a local celebrity when I was in once.

This is our favorite breakfast place in Wyoming. Its always crowded, but I have never waited more than 10 minutes for a table. Try the Pig Pile. Its a heart attack on a plate, but so good if you are a fan of pork. I have not tried the sandwiches as I can not get pat the breakfast entrees.

If you like diners, as opposed to the fast food experience, this is the place for you. While I've only eaten there once, they look like they have a wonderful selection for breakfast or lunch. I had a chicken sandwich on a pretzel bun with lettuce, bacon, honey mustard, etc. It was very tasty. Prices are very reasonable. Next time... More

Great breakfast spot! The sugar bread is a must try. Friendly service and good food for a decent price. Kalamazoo location is much better than the one on Byron Center Road.

Expect a wait to get in & plan accordingly. The decorations are sparse but that doesn't mean it lacks atmosphere. We each ordered breakfast and a sugar bread to share. All of the food came out quickly with huge portioning and was delicious. Would highly recommend this place. The downside-because it's so busy and the diner floor plan, it can... More

Airy atomosphere. Friendly service, constant drink refills. Great breakfast menu, from ala carte to meals. Specialty coffees, always hot and fresh. Lunchtime sandwiches better than any chain dining!

We had Sunday brunch at the Red Geranium on Byron Center. I had eggs Benedict Florentine and my wife had a waffle with whipped cream and strawberries. Both were very good. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. The service was excellent. Each server seemed determined to give good service. It's on the small side and does... More

Mom took me here with the warning that it's nothing to look at but the food is good. She was right. The place could use some cleaning. The food was really good and came as ordered. We had the skillet with hash browns inside. Huge portions and good to eat! The waitress was not very pleasant. I felt like we... More
