This is a very good Coney Island spot just outside of downtown Ypsilanti. On the day we stopped in, we were looking for a spot for breakfast before visiting Eastern Michigan University. The location just east of downtown on US12 was easy to find. The exterior was not anything great but that did not deter us. We went in between 10 and 10:30 and it was moderately busy. It seemed like a popular local spot. The interior was nothing fancy but we didn't expect anything chic. We seated ourselves and were waited on quickly. Our server was quite good during our entire visit. I ordered the Spinach Omelet with mushrooms and onions. I opted to skip the feta cheese. They also offered the option to prepare it with egg whites for a small extra charge which was much appreciated. I also selected for the sliced tomatoes in place of hash browns in order to keep my meal lighter. It was also accompanied by toast. The omelet was terrific as it was generously stuffed with spinach. My daughter decided to go for lunch fare as she ordered the tuna melt accompanied by a huge plate of fries. She was quite happy with her choice. The prices were pretty good as our two entrees with coffee and a soda came to less than $20 before tip. Overall, this place, while not elegant, offered sizeable portions of good food at decent prices. While Coney Islands aren't known to feature particularly healthy food, my experience here suggested that it was not hard to identify a relatively healthy yet tasty option.

Decent food, decent prices, always consistently a good spot for lunch. The burgers are good, the omelettes are good and they have a wide variety of sandwiches and salads. Not bad when you need a quick spot for lunch!

After a morning of furniture shopping it was highly recommended by the salesman to go to a Coney Island for lunch. We found the nearest location and were seated in a booth. This is a dinner style restaurant and serves a very large selection of breakfast items. . We had the Coney Dog, good dogs and the chili was real chili, not running or watery as we have found at other establishments. The fries were cook to a slight crispy exterior and soft interior, good fries for plan old fries. The chicken Pita was very good, and was made with specific taste requested, exactly as ordered! The Caesar salad with chicken was well prepared, the chicken cooked to perfection and not rubbery or dry. The server was pleasant and attentive enough to keep our beverages full and made sure our orders were acceptable for us. I would eat at this or other Coney Island locations if I am in the mood for dinner style food.

Been going to Luca's (on Washtenaw) for several years. The breakfast specials are excellent, and the waitstaff is primarily family, so it makes you feel good when you dine regularly, because they remember your order, and most times they just tell me "Your order will be right up!" Love that. Frank (the owner) will get to know you and sometimes will sit and chat with you. It's an excellent place to get your day started!

While we ate at the Luca's Coney Island in AUBURN HILLS, MICHIGAN, Trip Advisor doesn't have it in its data base, so I will review under a different Luca's! The patty melt I enjoyed on 10-7-12 in Auburn Hills was delicious; one of the best I have had. I had onion rings to go with it and they were also great; plentiful and shared with my husband. The open faced roast beef sandwich and mashed potatoes my husband ordered were not up to his standards! He said the gravy was way to salty and the beef not that good. The potatoes didn't look good, so I don't think they could have tasted much better! I would have ordered a Coney Island Dog, but they don't serve Nathan's hot dogs!!!! Being from the South, I had never heard of the brand the waitress named. I would go back here again. (This seemed to be a neighborhood favorite because all the people who came in seemed to know the owner and were greeted with a smile and hug!)
