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

I like going here for breakfast, granted there will be a wait on weekends no matter what. The food is above an average IHOP and the menu varies with a few new dishes every few months which is nice. But they run out of their legendary cinnamon rolls two hours before breakfast is over without fail, which is a negative... More

Good option for morning breakfast, but has a few problems. They always seem to be out of cinnamon rolls, the menu is full of spelling errors, when requesting a booth, they forgot about us and seated people who came after us in a booth first. Food is generally good, but some attention to detail would improve this eatery.

This is very popular among older folks in the area. Lots of carbohydrates here, more fat than spice. It's not a bad place, but I can't imagine why one would choose it except for portion size and the choice of traditional dessert items.
