Ate here for both dinner and breakfast on our recent trip to Kalamazoo. We were looking for a restaurant with some vegan choices and this fit the bill. Loved their black bean burger. (massive) Pleasant and knowledgable wait staff. Just need smoothies with real fruit.

I've always said it's hard to mess up breakfast. This place did the exact opposite. There was a line up the stairs, so we decided not to stay when people in line told us it was well worth the wait. Boy am I glad they did. It was the best breakfast food I have ever experienced. The staff was very... More

We arrived around 10:00, I had black and blue chicken sandwich with cup of soup, BF had Reuben with salad. Reuben was decent but bread was on the very crunchy side. Chicken sandwich was ahh-mazing! So much flavor and a good amount of meat too. Will head back again to try their breakfast sometime.

I came here spontaneously when I was tired of the same-old stuff. I desperately wanted breakfast for dinner (you know, to stick it to the man) and Crow's Next did NOT disappoint. I highly recommend Crow's Nest to anyone with tastebuds and an empty stomach. Or to anyone without tastebuds and a full stomach. Anybody, really. Once you're done with... More

We go for brunch after church. Always end up standing on stairs for 30 minutes or so, but once seated service is quick. Always in and out in 60 - 75 minutes including wait time.

I use to come here before it started having a line all the way to the street. It was amazing then and it is amazing now. The wait is worth it! The only negative is that the one server seemed a bit annoyed with my friend who wanted to modify one of her meals (religious reasons). Every person I have... More

The Crow's Nest has an incredible menu. Went there for the first time tonight with four others. We all had something different made with unique ingredients. The portions were generous and we all look forward to returning!

This is a great place to go for breakfast. The food is awesome. Go either really early or really late for breakfast, because the place is small and fills up quickly.
