Have been here several times and always leave satisfied! The food is always tasty and the prices are great. They are always busy but manage to give excellent service to all their customers.

It had been several years since we had last seen our friend. She suggested we meet at the Red Geranium. "OK" we said and away we went. We were not disappointed, The soup was delicious and the conversation was even better. Hopefully we will meet again before too long.

I go here once a week for breakfast. As the wait staff gets to know you they set up your table for you ahead of time. They always remember what I ordered before. They are like family there. It's not hard to cook up breakfast but to do it with great service is what makes this place special.

Good thing they have great hazelnut coffee. We waited 30 minutes to be seated and 40 minutes for our food.My western omelet was very good. Hash browns could be crisper so may need to request that. My husband enjoyed his skillet. They are open until 2:00. Kyle kept my coffee filled and gave me a cup to go!

This is a cafe style restaurant. Like many old time cafes the food was filling and tasty but not really prepared that well. I had biscuits and gravy, standard cafe fare, but the biscuits were over done and chewy. The assuage gravy was fine. However unlike the old time cafes the price was kinda high. Service was good and so... More

The RG on Kzoo Ave and the one by Metro Hospital are local favorites of many. We were at the one by the Metro this weekend. As often happens, there is a line to get in, but it moved very quickly and the wait was short. It is a very small and packed local restaurant. But, the food and portions... More

The food was enormous portions and extremely tasty. Our service was excellent. We were treated kindly and efficiently. Only thing that kept me from a 5 star was the extreme amount of noise the in the restaurant. Probably nothing that could be fixed. But if you are looking for a quiet relaxing breakfast - not your place.

We just so happened to get off the expressway and in the midst of a strip mall , was the Red Geranium ! We knew we hit the jackpot when the place was full. Excellent , excellent food and service! You must try the sugar bread! It is to die for.
