This place is awesome and everyone knows it! A long standing restaurant serving the best vegan/vegetarian food I've ever seen and tasted (sorry Seva). I had the Southwest Quinoa Salad and Budapest Mushroom Soup and Root Beer Kombucha. My friend had the Macro Combo. Their portions are huge and awesome. Their tempeh was dressed just right in a lemon/tahini sauce.... More

Stopped in for birthday cake and was delighted at all the vegan options available for our 2 herbivores! Each couple ordered and shared dessert with a bottomless coffee. Our vegans ordered the cardamom cake with frosting and we chose the apple crisp with raisins and coconut ice cream. Both desserts were worth the calories! The staff was very friendly and... More

Delightful! Every dish was delicious and satisfying. I'm sure that we left with doggie bags. I remember that we order the Opera cake because it is my daughter's favorite and it was outstanding. Here's hoping that Inn Season will be there to celebrate 50 more years of excellent service and excellent food!

Great place for vegetarians. I absolutely loved the portabella mushroom burger. I would have loved to try dessert but the burger was so large that I couldn't have managed to eat another thing. There was a wait but it was well worth it.

I met a dear friend here for dinner at her suggestion. This was my first visit, and I was looking forward to trying a new (to me) restaurant. It's a warm and welcoming place with comfortable seating. I love the more intimate environment - seating for, perhaps, around 50. I found my selection among their daily specials. It was a... More

This was my only my second visit to a vegan/vegetarian restaurant in 69 years of life. The place is small on a quiet side street (free parking !!!) with attractive original art hanging on the walls. They have also installed acoustic tiles on the ceiling to eliminate loud, annoying echoes that usually occurs in older buildings...great move ! I'm not... More

Great place for all. Amazing place for vegetarians and vegans. Highly recommended!! Wish they had more seating but that to me is part of its appeal and draw!

In general I order carryout from this restaurant, which is within walking distance of my house. The restaurant is small, so it fills up quickly. It's worth the wait, however. The atmosphere is quiet and comfortable. In addition, the staff is always friendly and competent. Food at Inn Season is always fresh and they never use microwave ovens. Given the... More

Inn Season is one of the metro Detroit area's classic veggie eateries. The food is high quality and consistently tasty, but lacks imagination. The staff is rather blah, as well.
