Our waitress personified her name - Joy. The food was well prepared and tasty, but it was the service that made the visit so wonderful. If we're ever back in Southfield, we will be back.

The big Apple with cinnamon ice cream is so good it's indescribable! Love the food here and try to get here when I visit in town. Love that they open early.

Ohop has the best pancakes in Southeast Michigan! Their bacon is always on point as well. If you would like to share a meal here I recommend the big apple or one of their spectacular made to order omelettes. They give new meaning to the word breakfast and the experience cannot be matched anywhere! It is a little on the... More

I have eaten at this restaurant (for breakfast only) a total of 3 times and every time the food is delicious and filling. You do have to wait in line to get a table because they get crowded so fast, so get there when they first open if you don't want to stand in line. The wait in line will... More

This is the only place i get pancakes. They are called the original pancake for a reason. The bacon is thick cut and so yummy.

Great food, great service. I have no complaints and would certainly eat there again! They are quite busy, so I'm guessing service could be slow at times but that was not our experience at all.

We tried this place which was close to our hotel. It was packed but we were seated quickly. The food was good and some was huge (we ordered one omelet for all three of us since it was very big). Overall good quality food for the price

This place is amazing, just need to get in early. Sunday morning is always busy, but worth the wait, service, food, price. Never a bad meal.

Before visiting a read numerous reviews about how great the food is. We arrived waiting for a table for 8 to be seated. The wait was one hour because the restaurant was crowded. We ordered the famous orange juice, but because they freshly squeeze the juice it tasted like pulp and water with a hint of orange. The food is... More
