Great little restaurant!

Visited a friend in Kalamazoo and he took us to The Crow's Nest for breakfast. Their french toast was awesome! Everything is fresh and they have specials that aren't on the menu. If you decide to go, plan on waiting in line for a table. They're small and on the second floor but it is well with the... read more

The food was all delicious and only outdone by the service. Our server, Jillian was Outstanding!! Extremely attentive to our needs and went out of her way to help my daughter. I had the black & Bleu chicken and it was moist with a delicious bun and aoili sauce along with a great homemade broccoli cheese soup. Others in the... More

Never would have imagined this place on top of a bakery could exist here in Kalamazoo, but I was wrong. I loved the food here and the service too. I had one of the veggie omelets and it was very tasty. The banana bread was delicious. You have to go early or later as the place is packed at breakfast... More

We both tried the Albatross omelet. It came with zucchini bread which was awesome. Omelette was perfect. Will go back. Quaint place with friendly staff.

We've attempted to eat at the Crow's Nest several times but have always left on account of the wait. Yesterday we were first in line and still had to wait 20 minutes. This 'waiting game' seems to lie in the inability of the staff to turn tables or for anyone to be in charge of this all important part of... More

Unique twists on classic breakfast food. Staff is friendly, and it's a fun environment. Don't let let the line deter you; it moves quickly.

Small space, friendly people, and good food. I went alone after reading the reviews. Amazing how much food a very small kitchen can put out. You literally have to go through the kitchen to use the rest room. Even the dishwasher is pleasant and gracious! Kind of a Bohemian setting, wonderfully refreshing!

My favorite place to get food... at all times of the day! Whenever I have friends come to Kalamazoo this is one of the first places we go. Their food is incredible, great portion sizes, and the coffee..... yum. :)

Food was really good. Something for everyone. Service was great! I did not see any handicap access, so don't take someone who will have problems going upstairs.

Great gourmet sandwiches in a "hippie " looking neighborhood. Young atmosphere, friendly, good service. Reasonable prices. Pretty small. Loved the ambience. Would recommend it to friends.
