Great food and service at this hip eatery in downtown Detroit. Hours are breakfast and lunch so go early. Hot coffee and perfectly cooked eggs. Catfish and pancakes looked amazing, but definitely not on my restricted diet. We did repeat visits over three weeks in the revitalized downtown. Detroit has tons of unique restaurants and cafes and felt safe but... More

Went with three teenagers, even they couldn't finish those! They're the size of semi truck tires and so good. The adults had Huevos Rancheros and that was good. I do not recommend the Mocha Latte. Straight up powdered hot chocolate in a diner sized coffee mug for $4.75. Also had the Eggs Benedict (the usual way, they had a couple... More

You will likely have to wait on weekends but it so worth it. Stuffed french toast, cinnabunn pancakes, eggs benny aplenty. This place is the absolute best.

We arrived around 9:15 am on a Saturday morning. We had a party of five so our wait was 20 minutes. They do not take reservations and will not take call ahead seating. The restaurant is a nice size. It is very clean and decorated nicely. Our server-Kathy-was very engaging and helped us figure out the best economical way to... More

Fun breakfast/brunch place in Downtown Detroit. If you go with more than 4, expect at least a 45 minute wait at prime time. Customer service from the Host to the Waitstaff and Bus staff were all very good.

I've heard great things about the Hudson Cafe, and I figured it was long overdue to try it out myself. Went with a group of three Saturday morning around 9:30, 10 minute wait, they have some comfy couches to sit on and watch TV, went by fast. Our server was great, we asked for recommendations and he was spot on.... More
