"We have always called it -the hippie joint-"

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... read more

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

If you're looking for a unique brunch experience, look no further. You will wait if going on a Sunday around noon like we did (about an hour & a half). But once inside, its a different world, happy, fun employees, great music, and nearly every square inch decorated with something retro, or just plain strange. Oh, and the food? Prepared... More

Literally GH is the best dive in Lansing. All the food is amazing and cheap. The decor inside and out is so interesting. Cool vintage hodge podgy feel. The wait is long but with fun friends it is SO WORTH IT.

My buddies and I decided to eat here to kick off my bachelor party. I will say, we waited three hours from the time we got in line until the time our food was given to us. With that being said, it was well worth the wait! You can get to know awesome people in line. Also the staff goes... More

We read about this place in a travel book as a place that was worth stopping into on the way through Michigan. It was memorable to be sure, but not for all the right reasons. The first and most glaring is that the name Golden Harvest is a misnomer. Although the food was prepared with a lot of healthy ingredients,... More
