Whenever we travel from our northern MI home, we try to fit in a stop at this restaurant. It has to be the best vegan restaurant we've eaten at in Michigan. The food is always fresh and delicious. They offer a special menu daily with wonderful options not on the regular menu. They also have fresh juice and smoothies and... More

We were here last week for dinner and they were really busy. The food was awesome, even my carnivorous husband and son truly loved the food. The bread is to die for and the olive oil to dip they bread was so good. I really wish I would have asked what kind it was so I could buy some for... More

I came here with my husband on a Saturday for lunch. The menu is really interesting with a lot of options (plus they have a lot of daily specials). We had the schezwan stir fry and the tempeh burger both were excellent. The dessert was also excellent (forgot the name - but it was a vegan hazelnutcake with chocolate mousse... More

My husband is vegan and I am semi-vegan (it's a long story). This quaint café is lovely. The food is so very yummy. Try the burger....or anything really. It's ALL good!

I never even liked carrot cake before I went vegan, but theirs is to die for. They had so many gluten-free options. The staff wasn't super friendly, but the food more than made up for it.

I love their budapest soup, it's so tasty, I love their vegetarian chili, I love all of their salads. I have enjoyed their tofu scramble. I have had their veggie wraps. I have never had a bad thing here, ever. It's tops!

It's good if you like that kind of food. I went with some friends that like tofu, etc. I didn't like the menu and I've never been back.

We aren't even veggie and we love this place! I love the ever changing fun specials. The staff are always so kind and attentive. When our kids were very young they would dote on them and find ways to make food they would like. The place always feels warm and homey.

My family loves Inn Season Cafe. The food is seriously delicious. It's very rare that any of us order something that we don't find we love. It's a great place to eat anytime, but it's the BEST for brunch!!! The menu changes and there is always something delicious and new to try. It's a relatively small joint so arrive early... More
