How perfect! Not being a big bread ester, I ordered the New England Benedict - which replaces the traditional English muffin with amazing crab cakes! With the spinach, tomato, perfectly-cooked egg and super Hollandaise Sauce. Our sever, Nate, was terrific - what a great way to start a very snowy day!

I enjoy getting tea here after I pick up a sub from Jersey Giants. I went to do just that and I waited and waited and waited. I was never greeted. A waitress walked in from outside and walked right by me. It was disappointing.

Keith L, Owner at Full City Cafe, responded to this review

My humble apologies and I understand your frustration. The waitress that walked by you probably walked in to begin her shift and hadn't even punched in yet, I am hoping she went to alert the gal who was working the counter. I will post this review so that our staff can see your frustration and be a lot more vigilant.... More

We have been going to Full City Cafe for many years now and we simply love it! The food is consistently good and of very high quality and the wait staff is also friendly and efficient.

Usually there for breakfast, which is one of the best, if not the best, in Kalamazoo area. Keith & Lisa have a "gold mine" here and a steady clientel. Good menu, good food, caring wait staff.

A hidden gem here in Portage. Foods are all homemade. Therefore you get to skip the generic commercial items. Very tasty as well. Highly recommend.

My second visit in two years. The service is still friendly and upbeat, and the breakfast menu options are super and varied. It sounds silly - but it would sure be nice to have an option of a 'sampler platter'. My daughter and I changed our minds several times before deciding. Super food, the sun is out, it should be...

We three different meals and we all enjoyed our respective meals. My husband is a kind of Mac and cheese nut and he thought it was very good. My friend had the duck and enjoyed the cherry sauce. We had a good evening.

We love Full City Cafe. We were there just last night and had the blackened catfish and a whirtefish dinner. Both were outstanding and tastey with timely service. All the salad ingredients are from local growers so everything is fresh with an artistic touch from the chef. The servers are very interested in there customers being satisfied and will bend...

Came here one cold morning during the January 2014 Freeze. Hot cocoa was good. Ordered 2 eggs, potatoes, muffin. I thought I was getting a english muffin with butter. But Surprise! I got the best blueberry crumb muffin ever! Eggs were done to my liking, but the fried potatoes were over seasoned for me, seasoned salt, is my guess. Overall,... More
