Great place to eat

We have had several meals here and have always had great food and great service. Rykse's is not a cheap place to eat, but it is well worth what you spend there. Everything is freshly made and the baked goods are delicious. The restaurant is clean and the service is fast and friendly.

This is a combination bakery and restaurant. The aroma is amazing. The cinnamon rolls and scones are a great way to start or end your day.

I have eaten here many of times - both for lunch and breakfast. I love their soup and sandwiches regardless of what they are as they are always fresh and homemade. Their oatmeal bread is the best. For breakfast I usually get the light meal with omelet with mushroom and cheese. Although last week I tried the egg scrambler with... More

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 sandwiches with soup or salad are no... 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...
