Good lunch but overpriced

Had a late lunch on Saturday. Looks like they have recently updated the menu and raised prices. The chicken tortilla wrap was very good, lots of chicken, but not very big and about $12. Served with their homemade chips and dip (or you can opt for soup or salad for additional charge). Half... read more

Rykses was a great place to visit. All of their bakery products are made that day, and the small bakery has wonderful staff. I would recommend anyone to go there for breakfast some day.

It's a great place to eat breakfast or have get together with friends. The owner is a hoot. The food is fabulous! They do NOT serve dinner either, but it's always busy because the food and staff are so good and friendly.

Stopped by for breakfast while waiting for car being serviced nearby. Promptly seated with water and coffee while studied the menu. I was considering a couple of choices, told the server what I was looking for and she recommended a less expensive alternative that I had overlooked. I ordered her recommendation and it was great. My server returned periodically to... More

This used to be one of our favorites. Today spent $30 for lunch for 2 okay sandwiches. Service , SLOW! Waitress mixed up our order. Then they began vacuuming the floor. This is not what we expected from Rykses. I don't think they are interested in serving diners. Just the bakery and catering. We could have had a great lunch... More

Visited friends in Kalamazoo, and went to Rykse's twice for pies, which were good. Tried the lunch and was sorely disappointed. Didn't read the reviews about the lunch menu before so was surprised when the oven crunchy chicken arrived - a small cassette tape size piece of breaded chicken, half a cup steamed/boiled veggies, and approximately one and a half...

We stopped for breakfast before we began our trip home to the east. The cinnamon buns are a meal & a half by themselves and they are delicious. My wife had one and I had a breakfast bowl that included ham, potatoes, and some veggies. It was good and we shared the two items. Coffee I hot and endless. Definitely... More

I walked in this morning and you know it isn't right walking by all of the gooey breakfast goodness, on the way to the line to be seated. I was immediately seated and Josh was an excellent waiter. My first choice was a Cherry Muffin, it was to die for and I couldn't wait for my food. My drink was... More

I had lunch there today with my family. I learned something. Always ask for a booth. The tables have very uncomfortable wood chairs, while the booths are fairly comfortable. I had the salmon sandwich with coleslaw. It was very good. Service was good. There is a bakery too, and their deserts are good. But you won't have room for desert.... More
