Surprised by the great breakfast!

We came at the suggestion of friends. It is located in the student section of town. We walked up an old stair case and found the hard wood floors in need of work and the tables/chairs "modest." Then came the food. Just awesome. Innovative choices, really fresh ingredients and large portions... read more

Have dined there 3 times and each time the food was top notch. The place is small and unadorned but usually full. Wait staff excellent,and food is always fresh. My favorite menu item is the Bahn Mi sandwich. Pork barbecue on toasted homemade sour dough bread with a spicy, garlicy sauce and a slaw on top the meat. A PERFECT... More

We went on a recommendation from Trip Advisor. We had to wait in line for 20 minutes and it was well worth it. Everything we ordered was delicious. The burgers were some of the best I have ever ate. I will be back again.

I moved to kzoo a few months ago, and this is by far my favorite place! It has a little hole in the wall cafe feel. The coffee is good and the breakfast is delicious. Everything is made with fresh ingredients and you can really tell that kitchen really cares about their dishes. I always get the banana nut bread... More

My husband and I ordered a breakfast to share and it came out split on two plates! Most restaurants just bring an extra plate. The food is exceptional. Very nice menu with non standard items. I will definitely return when in the area and pass the word to others. The service was excellent and all the employees were very friendly!!

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
