The Crow’s Nest is the best breakfast in Kalamazoo and one of my favorite breakfast spots anywhere! My family moved to Kalamazoo recently from Chicago. We LOVE Chicago and miss the world-class food scene that used to be at our doorstep. The first weekend we lived in Kalamazoo we found the Crow’s Nest and knew that we could live here.... More

Kalamazoo is a good halfway spot to meet up with an old friend of mine. We were looking for something besides the usual chains, and decided to try the Crow's Nest. We had about a 20-minute wait, but it's not a huge place and we got there right before noon, so we weren't surprised. The only thing you might want... More

Crow's nest is always a stop for myself and friends when we can all get together for brunch. It's usually always busy, but well worth the wait. I am a personal fan of the Banana bread french toast, it is amazingly delicious. Crow's Nest isn't the most affordable breakfast stop in town but the quality of the food is well... More

This was my first visit and I wasn't expecting the 35 min wait. My friend and I decided to wait and it was the right call. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Our brunch was delicious! I had the Bakers Benedict and the apple cinnamon french toast; I recommend both. Enjoy brunch!

We went there for the first time on Sunday , November 2nd. After a short wait, our party of 4 was seated. I had the Portabella sandwich with pesto, which was absolutely delicious! My husband had the Kokeys sandwich, which was equally as good! The service was great! We'll be back!

We were in town for a short visit and mapped out places that were close to us... and Crows Nest it was. We waited for about 20 minutes but it wasn't a big deal. We were all so happy with menu. It was hard to pick. In the end we all LOVED our food and took turns trying each others... More

We waited for a table, then we waited an HOUR for two sandwiches. The food is good but its not the BEST. And if I had known that I was going to have to wait an hour for my sandwich, I would not have stayed. When we at down we told the server we were in a hurry, and it... More

My husband and I stopped in while on a road trip. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast. You certainly get your money's worth.

This place is located in the Historic Vine neighborhood and the decor and menu reflect the eclectic vibe of the area. It is located upstairs so try to grab a table by a window overlooking the street. The service was good and so was the food. They have added unique ingredients to come up with some very tasty offerings. It... More
