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.

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.

Our breakfast experience with this restaurant goes back some 25 years. Our favorites are the Omelettes - fluffy, light, big, delicious. Please be aware that you will face long wait times during the summer months on Sunday mornings and at lunch time. Apart from that: 1) order your Omelette, Frittata, other Breakfast or Lunch 2) enjoy you food 3) pay... More

This restaurant is a local favorite and homemade bake goods are out of sight! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

I came here one morning while on vacation in Traverse City. There is no doubt that it is very popular, given our wait to be seated. This spot is very much a diner. That is not meant overmuch as a compliment or criticism, but simply as a fact. Small town charm and atmosphere, good food (the whole wheat toast especially),... More
