I had the French Onion Soup, Crab Cakes, and The Aviator for the drink. Everything was fantastic! Service was great as well. Highly recommend you give this local place a try if you are visiting Lansing.

We had an outstanding lunch over the holidays at this delightful little bistro. I was very impressed with their menu as well as their wine list. The service was outstanding and loved the atmosphere as well. We will definitely be back!!

First time in Lansing, and TA's recommendations were affirmed by a local friend. We got there at 11:30 for lunch and 90% of the tables were full. The host and waitress were great, good choice of obviously home-made soups and sandwiches. Hope to try breakfast sometime...

This place is a gem. The soups are always better than expected. I had a vegan cabbage curry soup that was one of best soup I had ever had of any kind. Their pumpkin soup was like having liquified and perfectly seasoned pumpkin pie in a bowl. As fantastic as their soups are, the entrees are like having a gourmet... More

Early to rise on a cold and snowy morning and I can't think of a better way to start the day than coffee, an awesome black forest omelet, smiling chefs and spunky friendly waitstaff. The manager ensured my food was great. I love this place!

I have a bad habit of comparing every omelet I have to the omelets that they make. Everything is made to order, local and delicious. Definitely a favorite place.

This is my favorite dig in Lansing. Its locally owned, and the food is always prepared well and fresh. The prices are reasonable ($10-15 for dinner, for the most part), and I always feel welcome whether eating with colleagues, friends or family. I only wish they were open on Sundays and their brunch (Saturday) is awesome and its hard for... More

Wonderful exciting food to try with a interesting selection to choose from. Good selection of craft beers and ask for Nick to describe the different cocktails too you. Wonderful service but you may have to wait to get in. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone.

This cafe has a huge menu with items you won't find in any regular cafe. Me and my husband tried the soup flight. You choose 4 of their 6 soups (4 of which change daily), which are served in pretty good size cups. The Butternut Squash soup was fabulous with a touch of nutmeg and curry. We split an Ava's...
