Awesome breakfasts served all day long. Get the Monte Cristo! No, the grits! No, the pancakes...sigh. Just work your way through the whole menu.

It was so good the first time we went back a second during our vacation. Everything was bloody good! Fresh squeezed OJ too! The only thing I'd like to see is more seasoning to the potatoes. I'd rather have the onions and peppers cooked with the potatoes than apart. I can understand why the wait can be long. Get there... More

After being told of a 25-40 minute wait, we were called after maybe 15 minutes. Our server, who was older, quite busy, and to the point, came over and soon brought our coffee and water. Minutes later we each ordered pancakes, eggs, and split a side of bacon. Maybe 10 minutes later she came with an entire tray of food,... More

Breakfast is king at the Hudson Café. They have everything from classic Benedicts to twisted Benedicts to pancakes to stuffed French toast to waffles to vegan spiced tofu. They have a sick mural and a bright, airy atmosphere.

Lunch choices and prices are reasonable. Gluten-free choices, including French toast and BLT makes my wife happy.

Hudson's Cafe in Detroit is a must for breakfast or lunch. Some standouts were the omelets, veggie crepes and the gluten free stuffed french toast - all delicious! The staff is friendly and the prices are good.

We waited an hour to eat here, and it was well worth it! The service was great and the staff friendly. The meals are a bit pricey, but the portions are huge and excellent quality. I had the Mexican omelet, and it was absolutely delicious! The kids had the Mickey Mouse pancakes and french toast. This is a must stop... More

Perfect breakfast, big dishes, friendly staff and a great atmosphere to start your day. We were a group of 7 and the staff arranged a bigger table for us.
