Good thing they have great hazelnut coffee. We waited 30 minutes to be seated and 40 minutes for our food.My western omelet was very good. Hash browns could be crisper so may need to request that. My husband enjoyed his skillet. They are open until 2:00. Kyle kept my coffee filled and gave me a cup to go!

This is a cafe style restaurant. Like many old time cafes the food was filling and tasty but not really prepared that well. I had biscuits and gravy, standard cafe fare, but the biscuits were over done and chewy. The assuage gravy was fine. However unlike the old time cafes the price was kinda high. Service was good and so... More

The RG on Kzoo Ave and the one by Metro Hospital are local favorites of many. We were at the one by the Metro this weekend. As often happens, there is a line to get in, but it moved very quickly and the wait was short. It is a very small and packed local restaurant. But, the food and portions... More

The food was enormous portions and extremely tasty. Our service was excellent. We were treated kindly and efficiently. Only thing that kept me from a 5 star was the extreme amount of noise the in the restaurant. Probably nothing that could be fixed. But if you are looking for a quiet relaxing breakfast - not your place.

We just so happened to get off the expressway and in the midst of a strip mall , was the Red Geranium ! We knew we hit the jackpot when the place was full. Excellent , excellent food and service! You must try the sugar bread! It is to die for.

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
