Depending on the season, day of the week, or time of the day you'll likely have to wait before getting a table at the Omelette Shoppe on Munson Ave. The food and service are worth it. If you are in a hurry to get on your way, go to McDonalds, otherwise, try the Omelette Shoppe.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten at all 3 of the Omelette Shoppe restaurants and enjoyed each. My latest visit to the Front Street location was no different. Breakfast is great with lots of choices. The prices were reasonable and service prompt and attentive. I'll be back.

“Popular & Established”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I've eaten here a few times, both with friends & recently with my husband. We got there around 9am on Saturday, had no trouble getting a table right away, but by the time we left, people were waiting, so we seem to have arrived at a good time. Great menu, very delicious food. They are well known for their baked goods & ask if you want to also buy anything from the bakery before you leave. Their breads, cinnamon rolls etc are exceptional. I had the Leelenau Scramble, which was very delicious, and the toast I chose was a thick cherry pecan with glaze, OMG!!! Husband had the Country Skillet, which he enjoyed. We both had leftovers, which were just as tasty reheated the next day. Our waitress was friendly & gave good service. The restaurant was hopping & busy. It is VERY popular. The only thing that disappointed us was the coffee. It was plentiful & hot, but we like our coffee strong and flavorful & this was lacking.

“At least the food was good!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Chose this restaurant due to the great reviews. The food deserved the reviews, but that's it. 3 out of 4 coffee cups at our table were dirty when we sat down and after getting clean cups, my husband found a bug in his coffee later. Our waitress was rather short and rude...she brought the wrong toast for a friend and brought the correct toast over 10 minutes later and it was way overdone. Nice! We all enjoyed our food, but maybe the experience would have been better with a different server.

“Yummy breakfast!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

If you can't find a yummy breakfast here, you have a problem. We did have to wait awhile for our food, but it was very busy.
