There was about a 45 min wait on a saturday but u can shop in the store next door so that helps and is a decent spot for cherry products. Service was friendly but slow and it was hard to get refills. That said i would try it again on a weekday when it's less crowded

Great spot for breakfast. Unique menu choices. Delicious food. Somewhat of a wait to get a table, but worth it!

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to eat breakfast here. We were totally disappointed. The service was slow and the food was not that good. I asked for a glass of water and got a very small glass of water while everyone around me was getting a real glass of water.

The menu has been scaled back to limited. To approximate any of our formerly favorite omelettes, the build your own option was very pricey. Service was extremely poor. It was difficult to get explanations and then our order was completely wrong with no apology for the errors or wait. We had to ask for the breakfast bread choices and were... More

Very nice selection of omelets and skillets with the ability to fashion your own mixture of ingredients. The omelets are crepe style with the ingredients folded into the middle rather than mixed into the egg. Very fresh tasting and a good value. The crowds move quickly, but the restaurant can fill up fast.

Sumptuous menu! Something for everyone. Sweet or savory? They had us covered. And the service was super!

We always eat here a couple of times when we are in Traverse City but this time it was disappointing. I always order the California Veggie Omelette ($8.79)but they changed the ingredients - green olives instead of the usual asparagus. I asked he waitress if I could substitute for asparagus and fortunately she said yes and at no extra charge.... More

Holy smokes this place deserves a 10 not a 5, well worth the wait if there is one. We loved it so much we ate here two days in a row!

We have been to both Omelette Shops before, many years ago. I had the cinnamon roll French toast and it was the best French toast I have ever had! everyone enjoyed what they ate, which ranged from eggs with pancakes to regular French toast. Service was good, and everyone was super friendly.
