What a GEM!

We stumbled upon this market and deli and were very pleased with the variety! From home-made soups, salads, hot items, even desserts . . . all were fresh and wonderful. Healthy choices galore! Deli-style served in your choice of container, n/a drinks of all kinds.

Sometimes the food can be a little to intense. I've found myself ordering way to much of a certain item only to find myself not being able to finish eating it. Every thing tastes so good but the flavor can be overwhelming.

This is a local eatery many locals still don't know about. Named after Irving Gilmore, a local businessman and benefactor, it is a super place to go for lunch right down town in the old Gilmore Store Building. They also Cater food for different events and the food is always excellent!

This is a wonderful place for lunch. They have a hot food bar that is priced by the pound, so you can get and pay for just what you want. The food is very tasty as well. Also try the Italian panini, which is the best in town.

The food is good at Irvings, but I don't always feel welcomed there as an African American woman. Also they don't always use gloves when handling food.

I grab lunch here at least once a week and I am never disappointed. I am always trying new things and new desserts. Everything I've had from here I love!

This is such a great little gem when out and about in downtown Kalamazoo. It's well appointed, the food is excellent and a great place to grab a coffee or tea.

We love Irving's! Their salad bar is amazing!!!! But our favorite stop is to grab up some hot cocoa after a visit with Santa or riding the Holly Jolly Trolley!
