Upon entering , signs that they do NOT take credit cards. I was seated and waited 10 minutes and never saw a waitress. I walked out. They were no busy, so I can't come up with an excuse for them.

Wife & I had a Sunday breakfast there, as had heard favorable comments. We weren't impressed. Wife had Eggs Benedict, and she's had better. She was sick the following day & night . . . was it the food? I had standard fried eggs & bacon. Eggs ordered over medium, but they were runny. Potatoes were greasy. Bacon, done, but... More

Another local favorite you need to get too early if you want a seat on the weekends as this place gets packed. The food is good, and service has always been pretty fast even when they are busy. Portion sizes good. Make sure you bring cash, as they do not take credit cards. They do provide and ATM in the... More

Stopped here early on a Sunday morning around 8:45 am and was able to get a table immediately. Which I felt was somewhat of a rarity, especially on a Sunday morning. This is definitely a local place where the staff knows several of its patrons on a first name basis. They have a nice variety on the menu and the... More

This is a tiny building that has LOTS of great food. The owner is usually there with his sense of humor. Very family oriented and it's the only place we know where you can order buckwheat pancakes! It's very inexpensive and they give you alot of food. It's all fresh and just tastes wonderful. The staff has been there a... More

Diner style restaurant. Food was delicious and well priced. Staff was friendly. Clean. They only accept cash though. No debit or credit cards which was unusual.

Ate here a few times while visiting friends in the area. The servings are American sized but you may ask for a box to take away any food you can't finish. They have a variety of soups to choose from. Tried the chilli and it was good. Tried the clam chowder from someone else's bowl and that was good. So... More

The omelets at LaRues are about the best I have had in Kalamaoo. We eat there about every other Saturday and have never been disappointed. My wife orders the veggie omelet and has them grill the vegies. They are very accommodating and the coffee is outstanding. If you are coming for Breakfast, plan to arrive no later than 8:30. It...

We went for lunch and the burger and fries were very tasty. The service was good and the restaurant was clean. We go a lot for breakfast which is also good. Would recommend to people looking for a mom and pop place to eat.
