Wow what a great place for breakfast right on Front street in Traverse City. The food was amazing. I choose eggs benedict and also tried the baked oatmeal both of which were excellent. The only suggestion I have for this restaurant is to offer a dark roast coffee for those of us that love a really good cup of coffee.

Before a day of sightseeing and winery touring on Old Mission Peninsula, we stopped in for breakfast---my friend had been here earlier in the summer with her boyfriend, and they loved it. The place was packed, but we felt it was worth the wait. We were seated outside in the back, as there was a very long wait for sunny,... More

We are visiting TC for a few days and ate breakfast here yesterday and it was so good we went back today. The staff is friendly, the food is good, large portions, enough for 2 people to split, and it is reasonably priced.

A great breakfast and lunch place in the heart of Traverse City. The food was well prepared and promptly served. We would've had breakfast there every day during our stay except they were closed on Sunday. The only thing missing is fresh squeezed orange juice

We dined at Greenhouse Cafe 3 days in a row, once for lunch and 2 times for breakfast. We had only had breakfast before and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. I had a corned beef sandwich and it was STACKED with corned beef. I prefer my sandwiches warm and when I asked the waitress she took it right back and they... More

You better get here early if you don't want to wait. The homemade soups, baked goods, and daily special specials are fantastic. It is only open for Breakfast and Lunch but you can always buy some homemade baked goods to tide you over until they open again.

This is in response to Gerry's review of Green House Café in DT TC. Green House Café is named after the family who own the little breakfast/luncheon- Green. If Gerry actually went in and ate the food or asked how they got their name he would have known this information. They are super friendly and customer satisfaction is their #1... More

This is an excellent dining option for lunch in downtown TC. They have excellent sandwich options and always about 6 homemade soups daily. Their soups and salads excellent and they make all their baked good daily--beyond yummy! I have never had a bad meal here--it has been a downtown dining staple in TC for years--with good reason--the good survive--love this... More

Stopped in for late, quick lunch today, shortly before they closed shopped at 3. It did not matter, the food was very good. We had the chicken salad sandwich which included cherries, yummy. We also had a Reuben in which the sauerkraut had been infused with cherries. Sounds unusual, but it was also very good!
