We were visiting family in the Lansing area, and I read about this highly rated breakfast restaurant. Overall, it's a cool, hipster restaurant, but here are some tips if you're going there. First - do not go in and ask to put your name on the wait list- they will stare at you like you're an alien and then ignore... More

This is a great place to have breakfast! The menu is outstanding and different. The music is loud, the place is small yet it draws lots of local people who are willing to wait outside in a long line just to sit next to a stranger that you are likely to share a table with to eat their wonderful food!...

This is a very nice and interesting place for breakfast. The wait is at least 45 minutes to over an hour in a line down the street if you go on a Saturday morning or during peak times but its worth the wait. The place is really small and if willing they will sit you at a table with total... More

Breakfast & Brunch Food, open 7 am - 2:30 pm. My fav. is the Cap'n Crunch French Toast but a lot of their food is AMAZING so it's hard to choose - lots of different stuff like that. They might even have a new creation to try each day. WARNING: This experience is not for the "faint of heart" -... More

Great food, large portions! Very small unique café in Old Town Lansing. It is a fun place to bring out of town friends if you are willing to wait. The outside has been recently added to with whimsy décor. I am not sure about the inside, it has been awhile sense I have been there because of the long wait.

This is a unique restaurant with great food at good prices. I like a good breakfast and this place serves different as well as typical breakfast items. If you sit at the bar, you get to see how in tune everyone who works there are.

I am torn on writing this review, as to many people know about this place already. It is eccentric and loud, but the food will amaze you. I strongly recommend getting the biscuits and gravy while waiting for your food. You will need a to go box.

What a fun place. I admit I was skeptical when my daughter and grandchildren raved about this place. I was shocked be the number of people waiting to get in to the former gas station. We waited patiently, although the kids were starving. Then it was our turn. We walked in to another world. The place was full of odd... More

Used to come by several times a week to eat here because their breakfast is the best in town. Unfortunately, the wait has become more and more ridiculous as time goes on. Definitely not worth it for me. Haven't eaten there in two years and have no plans to go back in the future because of this alone. If you... More
