When I went to Marie Catrib's, I was struck by their eclectic style and menu. The food is simply perfect and their chocolate pudding basically brought me to tears. I had the great privilege of meeting the current owner: Marie's son. He is an outstanding person with a real passion for food, supporting the local economy, and environmental sustainability. Marie's... More

This is a popular neighborhood restaurant. My daughter and I dined for the first time. The special that evening was vegetarian quesadillas and they were selling like hotcakes!! I selected the sweet potato quinoa burger which was good but not outstanding. It was served with very good tomato chutney and a dill pickle which was definitely outstanding! It tasted fresh... More

Can here for breakfast with a group a people. Everything on the menu looked great. I ordered the Rock the Hash-Bah. The hash was spiced perfectly with lots of flavor. The toast is from homemade bread and is soft and hearty. The table shared the cornmeal pancakes and tastes more like corn cakes. The coffee is from Higher Ground which... More

At the urging of my fellow TripAdvisors I just had to check out this spot. It was definitely interesting and different, and absolutely worth the visit. I loved the owners back story too! I had the chicken cranberry sandwich (goes by another name, but that escapes me now). It was good, but after viewing the other lunch items around me... More

The fish tacos - AKA Bruce Anchor - are the second to none! Others to try are the Chicken Cranberry, and the ham sandwich with apples. Great appetizers, desserts and deli selection. Service is fun and sassy, and each employee seems to hold a little bit of the late owner in their heart... Marie is missed like crazy, but this... More

Stopped here on our drive from Mackinac Island to Chicago. Hit Grand Rapids area right around lunchtime and found this place on TA. We like to hit a local favorite over fast food or chain restaurants whenever possible when traveling. Loved the food here. Service was quick. We were driving through on a Saturday so there was a bit of... More

There are so many things to like about this establishment and not a single thing to dislike. Not only does the restaurant have a nice variety of vegan dishes, the attached deli is a dream come true. Since I live out of state and only visit a couple times of year, I always visit the deli after I eat to... More

Lived up to all the great reviews. Menu unique. The Lox bagel was tasty. Turkish coffee nice. Kids happy with oatmeal and pancakes and fancy hot chocolate. Everything extremely well done and the service and setting were first rate. Excellent.
