Wonderful service. Food was amazing. Our party of ten tried a variety of dishes and everyone raved about their food. Definitely worth a drive to Kalamazoo.

The ultimate mac n cheese and halibut on special were amazing! The server was attentive and knowledgable. Drinks were prepared as requested and the 'cat's meow' dessert was delictable! The best part was the bacon. If you love bacon, you must go here! They cure it in house and it melts in your mouth. Can't wait to go back!

I live in Kalamazoo and this is my favorite place to go just about! Amazing food, amazing coffee, amazing service, and unique and beautiful atmosphere. A little pricey but well worth it. All organic ingredients and food. Great!

This place is excellent for breakfast,lunch, or dinner. They care about quality so they use many locally grown or raised products and some organic. The breakfast menu is interesting and every item I have ordered I have loved. Their hamburger and fries, though expensive, is one of the best burgers in Kalamazoo. They have many gourmet touches. such as sauces... More

Have visited Food Dance multiple times over the lat several months. Breakfast is the best but lunch is also very good. Do-si-do omelette, huevos rancheros were the best, Chicken salad sandwich for lunch. Fries are good, not sold on the in house ketchup. The orange, mint and ginger smoothie also great. Will go back anytime in Kzoo.

One of the best places I have eaten. I have been to Boston, Chicago, Dallas and tons of smaller cities in between and hands down Food Dance could fit perfectly in ANY of those places. There is nothing small town about the food at this place. I cannot say enough about the food, staff, atmosphere....JUST GO! You wont be disappointed!

What a great place to visit for brunch. My wife and I stopped her after a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. We ordered their biscuits and gravy and strawberry french toast. Both dishes were outstanding and we would gladly return next time we're in Kalamazoo.

Great place for breakfast with fresh ingredients. Lots of seating, but the parking lot fills up fast it seems. If you're looking for breakfast in Kalamazoo, this is the place.

Great food with farm to table options. Healthy, with options for vegetarian or vegan needs as well as more traditional choices. One of our friends has lots of allergies and she was able to get all of her questions answered and was able to order fresh food that worked for her. It has great service. So good that we went...
