Try the sugar bread!!!

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

great place to stop in and grab some really good food. This place is always very busy but there never seems to really be any sort of wait. Would highly recommend it.

We occasionally eat at the Red Geranium. We've had excellent food and service, especially lunch. When you get a burger which is great, you get a mountain of fries. But for an Eggs Benedict lover like myself, someone needs to help them out a bit! First of all, toast the English muffin, please! The ham was good but, and here's... More

Stopped in with a friend of mine--had never been in as it is in a weird strip mall location. However, I WILL BE BACK. Had a phenomenal breakfast. Huge portions. Great prices. Great options. Family-friendly. Service was great--even for it being as busy as it was. Would love to return during warmer months just to sit outside, but again, it's... More

Portions are huge and they continuously refill the coffee. Haven't had a bad breakfast here yet. Would be perfect if not for the bathrooms.

Icame to this restaurant with a coworker for a early lunch. Place was packed and we had a group of 10..Service was immediate and friendly, portions were more than enough to get you full. Definitely will be returning soon.
