Another holdover from Northvilles past, the name has changed from the old Dandy Gander, but the people and the food seem to be the same. You want a good ol' down to earth Michigan Man American Breakfast.... they have you covered.

Food is excellent. They know how to cook eggs -- no brown on the omelettes. Staff is very friendly -- been there a long time. Good feeling of comraderie. SUGGESTION: Staff should have nametags so we know who they are.

Northville Charm and a fabulous new menu choices. Weekend specials. This used to be the Dandy Gander but old owner bought it back and is making a nice place out of it. Updated new decor an menu bring some fancy dishes and skillet breakfasts along with regular fare. Classy granite countertops in the booths and lots of roosters. Big improvement. Nice wait staff. Great Potato Pancakes, and fresh fruit. We've been there three times and not been disappointed. Breakfast and lunch only.... no dinner. Big choice for breakfast. It has a bit of the old diner feel, but upscale Northville selection and service. Won't break the bank to dine here. Nice fresh and clean!
