Old fashion feel

This is such a cute little breakfast diner. Old fashion feel with a bar in the middle of the restaurant where the waitress's gather and you can see the food coming right out of the kitchen. I had the egg benedict, and the hollandaise sauce was a little salty, but other than that great place! The... read more

It's off the beaten path and it looked like a Mom and Pop restaurant so we thought we would give it a try. I ordered a mushroom and Swiss omelette with pancakes ($7.99) and my husband got Stan's Big Breakfast ($7.99) - scrambled eggs, bacon, country fried potatoes and pancakes instead of toast. The omelette was ok - canned mushrooms... More

From the outside you could be scared to go in. Wonderful neighborhood diner feel. Good service good food. They are known for their "red velvet" corn beef hash. Not to worry its a steak seasoning. Very salty but good. Great coffee. Great prices

We enjoyed the food and service at this old-fashioned diner. Good food - the battered cod was excellent - crisp and hot. Service was fast and friendly.

The purpose of this visit was to introduce visitors from another country to the kind of U.S. restaurant that they have seen in the movies, but probably assumed had been wiped out years ago by the boom in fast food. Rounds looks and feels like something from the 1960s, but it is authentic and alive. You will get a friendly... More

This is a smaller restaurant but not hard to locate. Has it's own parking lot that is free. The inside is old and country decor and the menu is not extensive but the food is good. I enjoyed the 50/50 burger which is half ground sirloin and half ground bacon and YUM! IT WAS GOOD. It was moist and tasty.... More

With it's circular central counter, flagstone and globe lights, Rounds is an MCM lover's delight! The service was super great, and the breakfasts were good too! A nice bit of Traverse City history.

my husband loves the hash for breakfast. We have been coming here for years, it is quite a flash back. We love it. Home made bread is great too.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Rounds. We had their popular corned beef hash and "Toni's breakfast". Everything was fantastic. We loved all of the homemade items - bread, jam, and the attention to detail - carafe of coffee so we wouldn't run out, three types of hot sauce, etc. Absolutely loved this place!
