Great breakfast!

The only thing bad about the Crow's Nest is that they are always jammed because they're so good. It's just a great neighborhood restaurant, perfect for breakfast and lunch. Never had a bad meal here. Be aware it is not wheelchair accessible. It's up a very long flight of stairs.

My husband and I have been trying places listed by "Gonzo" from the Grand Rapids Press as "best" For "best breakfast" we decided to try Crows Nest-sure glad we did! Had a wait on the stairs, knew if all these people were willing to wait, it would most likely be worth it and it was! We had excellent service, food... More

I like this cozy brunch spot by my brother's house. They have good food, made fresh and so tasty. It is always hopping, but probably would be better at off peak hours instead. Way better than the IHOP option down the street. I need to try it out for other meals in the future.

This small gem may involve a bit of a wait and a small climb up stairs, but so worth it. Many delicious vegan options. The portions are huge and well-priced. Our group ordered a variety of wraps, scrambles, and sandwiches. All were exceptional!!!

We ate here because of the trip advisor reviews. The reviews are accurate. We all enjoyed our food and the home made hummus was great. We will be back.

took my sister-in-laws here and we all had great food and the price is so reasonable. We had the apple cinnamon french toast, amaretto pecan french toast and the standard eggs and everyone enjoyed the food

We were out late at a music event the some friends suggested Crow's Nest because they are one of the few restaurants open that late in the area. The menu was extensive for such a small dining area, and surprisingly diverse. My french toast with apples & cinnamon was excellent, and my husband really enjoyed his omelet. One of our... More

This place is no secret. From the time that they opened they have been very popular. One often has to wait on the staircase for a table, but it's worth it. There are lots of good choice for vegetarians, as well as for those who like meat.
