I live in the Grand Traverse Area and have been to the Om Cafe several times. I have never been blown away by their food or service and have found it to be fairly expensive for what it offers. Up until recently, however, my experience there has always been good enough that I would come back. I won't now. A... More

Another wonderful dinner with friends. We love this place. Three of the four in our party had the Buddhist Priest Stir Fry, and I had the Pad Thai with tofu. YUMMY...everyone raved about the delicious, yet complex flavors...this is a must stop for either lunch, brunch, or dinner. Jim and Linda Munro Korner Kottage Bed & Breakfast Suttons Bay, MI

The food and service was average. The food was not as flavorful as I expected and my daughter found hair in her food. The waitress wasn't very personable. One good thing is that it was off the beaten path so there were no parking issues.

This place came highly recommended by a local vegan friend so we decided to stop by. We walked in at 3pm on a Sunday and were met by a waitress who told us they were closed. In the middle of the afternoon? We went to the place connected to them, The Parlor and had half off drinks and food. It... More

Taking a road trip as a gluten-free and vegan person, it can be difficult to find food on the road. It was such a thrill to find a place that actually marked the options I could eat on the menu! We went to the Traverse City location. It has a good variety of healthy food options. I am married to... More

As a meat lover I was hesitant to try this vegetarian restaurant, but my partner convinced me to at least savor some of their foods! I agreed. I was amazed! I ordered the TLT, a tofu replica of the traditional BLT. It was excellent! The flavors taste like bacon. The soups are great and most food items are local grown.... More

Waitress was fine but the food took FOREVER!! I ordered the mushroom pizza and it was delicious, someone ordered black bean burger and they loved that, 2 ordered Asian noodle bowl and neither one cared for that. Both said it was bland.

Beautiful renovated spot. The cafe is just one part of the restaurant, lounge and bar. Recently revamped their stir fry which was well flavored (chose the udon). Arugula pizza was very good as well as the Greek plate appetizer. The quinoa salad tasted wonderful but the presentation was odd - quinoa was ice cream scooped in center. Sent a drink... More

We were doing the Traverse City Ale Trail.....trying to find the BIG TOE BREWERY.....which according to the Om café website is "WITHIN THE OM CAFE".....however, the wait staff have yet to understand this. We asked if this was the "big Toe Brewery" and they said "no and waved us to the right saying "I think it is over there." So... More
