You definitely have to be a little laid back to enjoy this gem. It's so unique and has fantastic food though! Best breakfast around! (Be sure to buy a Gaia cookie on your way out, you won't regret it)

We go to GAIA every time we are in Grand Rapids! We love the vegetarian commitment, the small but very tasty menu AND the cookies! Plus, the people are very nice!

This is a hidden little restaurant in the quaint area of Eastown in Grand Rapids, MI. Now, the place is VERY small so getting a seat might night be the easiest task around, but it is truly worth the effort. The food is simply wonderful....More
