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

You have to wait outside for your table, we were with a party of 3, but the party of 2 behind us went in first, because they could split a table with another couple. This is all worth it though! Food is delicious and a little different from your standard breakfast place. It is a fun and lively place. Everybody,... More

Great food. Great biscuits and gravy. Love their breakfast burrito. Pancakes are out of this world. Awesome omelettes. Unique daily specials. Expect a long wait, unless you get there 30 min before they open. Breakfast here can be a 2-3 hour experience, but the food is worth the wait.

Often long lines but always worth the wait - the food is absolutely divine. The food is so good that it's not only worth the long lines, but also the possibility of sitting at a table with strangers and a little early morning dubstep.

Be prepared to wait, and do--it's absolutely worth it. Their menu is amazing, and their specials are better--honestly I've never once tried something I didn't love! We love sitting at the counter and watching everyone prepare the food, because we learn more about the menu and mentally place our next order. My only complaint ever has been the volume of... More

Unbelievable omlettes, scrambles and B&G and of course huge pancakes. Very Generous portions, share a table or sit at the counter, as they place you. Plan on waiting and for it to be worth doing so. For less of a wait (but not much) come mid week. Great atmosphere in an industrial district. The best breakfast in Michigan, barely beating... More

I have only been to The Golden Harvest a few times, mostly because there is ALWAYS a line out the building. You HAVE to wait at least once though, it is totally worth it. Second best pancakes I have had in my life, great eclectic atmosphere and welcoming staff.
