I found this spot on Tripadvisor and it was well worth getting off the highway for! We drove on the backroads, and Kalamazoo is very picturesque. We arrived at 8 am and the restaurant was really busy. We sat ourselves down, and had to wait a long while for service. I suspect we arrived at the changed in shifts. Once... More

Very small and may have to wait to be seated at prime times, but nice friendly second story restaurant. Window seats are nice to look over the street and shops near by. Kids meals are $5 and adults range from $8-$13 Large portions. Enough For two people to share. Lots of flavor.

Its been 6 years since I was in Kalamazoo, and the banana bread french toast is almost better than I remembered. So very tasty and yummy, and reasonably priced. Its a little out of the way, but well worth it.

My husband and I stumbled across this place while looking for a place to have an early breakfast. The service was great. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. There were only a few other customers there when we arrived. By the time we were leaving, the place was packed. Now that we've discovered this restaurant, we make it... More

Loved this place! Food quality was excellent. They tell you the source of some of their foods, and the breads come from the 24 hour bakery downstairs, so fresh! I sampled everything our party of four ordered, from French toast and veggie scrambler to grilled cheese to wraps, all delish. It was very busy when we were there at noon... More

This is a great place for breakfast. The room is airy with a feel of old school and a wink to the modern.

Great food. The home fries have been burnt in the past, but overall, this is an awesome breakfast spot (dinner is go too). The coffee and homemade bread/bakery goods are a huge plus. Definitely one of my favorite breakfast places in kzoo.

Fun, reasonably priced restaurant that caters to the students at Kalamazoo College. Nothing fancy, but a pretty large menu of sandwiches and breakfast that is available anytime. All of the portions are huge, so next time I go, I will know to share. I tried the BLT and added the fried egg and red onion to go on top. The... More

They have a great breakfast menu with organic, many vegan, and just interesting dishes available but the restaurant is tiny! You end up waiting awhile on weekends and there isn't really a waiting space so you're on the stairs, which just feels like I might fall over. I just prefer going on weekdays or late night since they are open... More

Everyone told us that Crow's Nest is the "place to go" for breakfast. With lines out the door, you would think it's worth the wait. Well, it isn't. We got there early and 4-5 tables were still open. Our server was the best part of the experience--she was prompt and we never had to flag her down for coffee refills.... More
