Glad to see the turnaround...GREAT service!! Super food

Our family has kept away from this restaurant for the last nine months as service was VERY spotty....and at 1:30 in the afternoon they started cleaning up...was VERY distracting and wait staff was more anxious about getting out that doing their job. We decided to try it again and was VERY happy... read more

The Omelette Shoppe is a great spot for breakfast in the Traverse City area. I visited here on a busy Easter Sunday, but we didn't have to wait long to be seated and served. I tried a Meat Lover's Scramble and my wife tried the pancakes. Both dishes were superb, and cooked to perfection. The coffee was also great, with... More

A diverse menu, medium prices, plentiful helpings, and homemade gigantic cinnamon rolls and cherry/pecan bread with frosting to die for. Can even buy the bread loaf with a container of frosting to take home. Try it -- you'll like/love it!!

If you are having breakfast anywhere other than your own home or the Omelette Shoppe you need to reevaluate your tastes lol. This place is damn good. Homemade jelly, Cinnamon Rolls & bread. My Omelette was fantastic & my honey had the Eggs Benedict which was just as good. It's small, not fancy, & a tight squeeze but if good... More

With a name like the "Omelette Shoppe," this place stood out to me since I love omelettes. We got there toward the end of the breakfast rush, so we didn't have much of a wait--maybe five minutes at the most. Our waitress came right over once we were seated, and she was very informative about the omelettes, and she was... More

The omelettes are made with four eggs, so arrive hungry. Make sure to order their coffee, too, it is delicious. You may have to wait for a table but it is worth it!

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
