The decor is nice, the service is great, and the food is worth coming back for. My husband's favorite is the Root Vegetable Hash. My favorite is the Daanes Omelette. The only thing missing from the menu is Waffles. Also, I didn't particularly care for...More

Had a delicious grilled cheese with tomato bisque soup on a sloppy, rainy day. Service was good considering how crowded it was. Soup was homemade and very tasty; it was made to dip a grilled cheese into. There’s also a little bakery there with very...More

The acoustics are obviously designed to diners from relaxing & becoming comfortable. There are no attempts at lowering the SPL (Sound pressure level) No sound absorbing ceiling tiles exist, the kitchen is open. Carrying on a conversation requires a conscious effort. Consider bringing ear plugs....More

I recently went with my friend to Luc's café and found it very hard to decide what I wanted from the menu; I loved too many of the options. Upon looking at the specials board I did see a flapjack special for 8.99. After reading...More

This is a beautiful sleek breakfast spot in the old fashioned yet reborn Creston area of GR. It’s got great service, stylish decor and cocktails too if you are brunching in the afternoon. Prices are reasonable and the wait is not as long as other...More

We went as a highly recommended breakfast spot. We found it not to be too par or even close to the quality suggested. Service was slow. But most of the food was cold. Even the second serving of biscuits and gravy was hint of warmth....More

I had a Polish Hash in a skillet. Kielbasa, eggs, peppers, red cabbage, kraut maybe? It was great and cheaper than I expected. Good coffee and nice atmosphere too. Well worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood.

One of us had the Sy’s breakfast pot pie—hashbrowns, eggs, cheese, mix of meat, gravy, and a biscuit top was plentiful and great. The Daane’s omelet had Monterey Jack cheese and spinach inside, and fire roasted tomatoes on top. The tomatoes were the hit with...More
