Every time I go to Royal Oak, I always have breakfast here. The dishes are unique and delicious. My favorite is the scramble. It is always excellent. Try the lobster grits too - very good!!!

My Dinnerclub picked Cafe Muse for our December location and with a group of 15 there wasn't one person that was impressed. First the positives: the wine was fantastic. Great selections and great tasting. The highlight of our entire meal was the waiter. He was phenomenal. Entertaining, accomodating and friendly. We even included him in our nightly photo! For the...

We loved how prompt the service was. The food is fresh and presented well. It was a little crowded on the weekend we went but it was only a meager 20 minute wait. The menu was varied and was innovative. We were thankful the portions were somewhat small as we tried many of the dishes. If you're looking for a... More

Came here on a Sunday morning around 9:30AM. I called ahead for a reservation, which is a very good idea. Called earlier in the morning, which seemed to work. Unfortunately, the hostess out me as a single right next to the from door. On a cold Sunday morning, that just didn't work. Take notes other solo diners. The Sunday brunch... More

We had a nice lunch after walking at the Detroit Zoo down the road. There are many choices and they are wonderful. Our waitress was good.

Love Café Muse for the food and quiet atmosphere. We generally sit at the bar and have great service. Our group of 6 dined on Saturday - seated promptly, several different attended to the table. Nothing horrible just no flow and ease to service - had to ask for side plates, silverware (after they cleared from prior course), lots of... More

I have been coming to Cafe Muse a couple times per year whenever I visit in the area. Many of their breakfast combinations involve egg scrambles with creative 'riffs'. For example I love the wild mushrooms with truffle oil and Boursin, or grilled leaks with Romesco sauce.They have a wide variety of sweet and savory selections on the menu, such... More

This is a very nice place for weekend breakfast - a nice ambiance, great service and an interesting menu. The one time I went here for dinner, however, I was definitely underwhelmed and so only go there for breakfast.
