We ate here every morning during a girls weekend trip. Everyone woke up each morning asking of we were going to "the spot". All 4 of us are now addicted to Boursin cheese thanks to the crab omelette. We also got a kick out of the party names they give you when there is a wait to be seated. (Every... More

I had food there and the food tasted good, with very large toast. That makes it a winner in my book.

We were travelling with a large group for kayak excursion and 14 of us went here for breakfast. They were nice enough to accomodate our large group and the waitress did a great job of getting orders in quickly and food out to us quickly. Bacon was cooked to perfection and pancakes were nice and fluffy. If you are a... More

This place has a varied breakfast menu. I ordered the California veggie omelet. It has mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, spinach, avocado and cheese. It was delicious, light and fluffy. It came with a bread selection. I don't remember what the bread I selected was called, but, it had an icing on it. It was more like a desert. It was very... More

I was meeting a friend I haven't seen in 25+ years for breakfast, and she suggested the Omelette Shoppe. It was perfect - welcoming, friendly and bright. Our waitress kept the coffee coming but didn't interrupt the flow of our conversations. We both had the eggs benedict, which was really good. Hashbowns were crispy and warm, and they didn't skimp...

This is a great place for breakfast. A nice selection of items to chose from. We had great service and wouldn't hesitate to return. Go early on the weekends or be prepared to wait.

This place is worth the stop. They have a few tables outside but you might have to wait, but it well worth it. The eggs are terrifc and the toast is gigantic !!! I also ordered the fresh orange juice infused with strawberries, this was sooooooooooo good. We traveled to Traverse City with our pup so the outdoor seating was... More

There was a 20 min wait, but worth the wait. We got New Mexico omelette, traditional Egg Benedict, sausage gravy omelet. My whole family polished off all our meals. Nice portions for adults. The kids meals choices were better than most breakfast joints and they also provided games to keep them busy while they waited, always a plus.
