Was in town for business and had to stay over night. Decided to come here for breakfast after reading the reviews. So worth it. Couldn't decide if I liked the amaretto pecan french toast, bacon, or coffee more. And I LOVE coffee. My traveling partner got the berries and cream pancakes and they looked so light and fluffy also. There... More

Breakfast was fresh, delicious, and different. I had the banana bread French toast and I'd get it again. Love that there are one-or-two slice versions of the French toast... I hate having breakfast leftovers! The building was a revitalized older building. Really nice feel with a perfect mix of old and new. The music and staff all added to the... More

Driving back and forth between Chicago and Detroit when I was in college, I would skip by Kalamazoo. Big mistake! It's a fascinating city full of surprises. One of the best on the culinary front is the Crow's Nest. Who would expect that at the top of the somewhat rundown stairway in a nondescript neighborhood await great breakfast delights available...

Food is amazing! Good thing too, since it took nearly an hour to get to us.. Crow's next has excellent grub, a true array of choices, cozy atmosphere, and the price is right. Unfortunately they are VERY slow. Be prepared to earn your food with your butt in your seat. Aside from the long period of time until noshing, this... More

Crows Nest means ... yes, it's on the second floor... 23 stairs including the two outside. My friend was worried about but she's a trooper and made it up the stairs. We already decided that we were going to try the tomato bisque soup because we read about it on Trip Advisor. The soup is fabulous! My friend ordered the... More

I love this restaurant! I always get an omelet and it is always great. My friends really enjoy the pancakes and french toast! 10/10 would recommend!

Made it to this fun place that a good friend had recommended. This was our 2nd attempt; first time the line was all the way up the stairs. This time only the top couple steps. Really worth the wait! Three of us had 'breakfasty' food on a Sunday evening, and it hit the spot. Truly enjoyed it. Fun place. My... More

This is a very popular restaurant near downtown Kalamazoo. Frequently you have to wait in-line. The omelets are delicious. Good service. Reasonable prices.

Went for breakfast Labor Day. Had to wait for about 15 min for seating. Breakfast items very generous. Staff efficient and friendly. Nice atmosphere. I recommend this over any other breakfast place.
