Stopped here because tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The place is small, but cozy and colorfully decorated. Our waitress was super attentive and helpful. And to top it all off, the food was amazing. We started with a cinnamon roll, which was a pile of large, gooey, deliciousness. To follow, one of us had biscuits and gravy and... More

My husband and I visit Traverse City at least once a year and no visit is complete without a trip to the Omelette Shoppe. The menu is large so there is something for everyone. There are two locations, this one downtown and a larger location down the road. There is always a wait so don't go there if you are... More

Was there Sunday and it took 45 minutes to get our food. We didn't mind the 45 minutes to get a table, but it was ridiculous to wait the same amount for food. We were not the exception. Everyone around us were also waiting. Coffee and water were not refilled as much as they should have. The food was really... More

We went to the Omelette Shoppe on Front Street because we heard it was one of the top places for breakfast in Traverse City. We got ripped off by the skinny old waitress that was working there Wednesday morning. They had a breakfast special for $3.99 that included 2 eggs, toast, bacon, hash browns and coffee. My husband asked for... More

We are regulars here. The food and service are outstanding. The only drawback is that they are so good, sometimes you have to wait for a seat.

even though the wait was long, it was worth it. due to an emergency, the kitchen staff was shorthanded, but everything seemed to go well once our orders were placed. the staff worked together to help one another and we had an enjoyable meal.

Had to wait to be seated which says good food to me but only 15 mins. Tight seating but pleasant. Waitstaff worked hard to make people comfortable even a guy with crutches and a few groups with a chair at an end of a booth. The sausage gravy omelette was the best breakfast Ive had in a long time.

We eventually gave up and walked out - something I've never done before. Our party of 5 (3 preschoolers) arrived at 9:55 on a Wednesday morning. Waited 5 minutes to be seated (great), then 10 minutes for a server to stop by the table (a bad sign). Eventually, we ordered drinks, and a simple breakfasts (pancakes, a waffle, and french... More

We were there around 1:30 and were told that they were out of iced tea. Then we waited at least 20 minutes for sandwiches - a wrap and a BLT, so nothing complicated, but it took forever.
