These hash browns are to die for, with onions mixed in, you won't find better hash browns. All of their omelettes taste great and never dissapoint.

Whatever you order - you will take half home for another meal. It's great food at a really reasonable price and you will never be sorry that you went there!

This address has closed and relocated a couple of times. New owners. Popular destination. Large servings. Now located downtown Bay City corner of Center and Saginaw. Not a personal favorite of mine.

Gyro's are the best and breakfast's are huge and very filling. Always busy and you get to see them cooking. Right in the middle of the downtown area, with lots of shopping all around.

Years ago this nice diner was on Braoadway in Bay City. It was forced to move due to the owners of the building. Amazing what greed can do. When it was in a downtown hotel it wasn't the right fit. When it moved to the old Caris Red Lion spot in downtown it was felt it found it's nitch spot.... More

I was there on a busy weekend, so perhaps that could explain the slow service, but not the no-flavor food. My husband and I both ordered omelets, toast, and hash browns. The omelets weren't even whisked. I could clearly see the whites vs the yolks of the eggs. My husband's omelet was incredibly runny. The hash browns tasted like cheap... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. They have a menu loaded with options. Prices are very reasonable, and the quantity/quality of food is excellent. Our entire family loves it here. Waitstaff is very accommodating and friendly.

Since they have moved downtown the food has lost it's edge. Also they serve Pepsi and I'm a die hard Coke drinker.
