This place is packed from the time it opens til the time it closes. Great homemade food. One of the best places ever for breakfast, brunch or lunch. We always make it here for breakfast.

I stumbled upon this place almost by accident and I am so happy I did. The omelets were amazing. The service was a little slow but it wasnt terrible. Definitely check this place out if you are in the area.

Perfect spot for a Sunday lunch! The coffee is great and the biscuits and gravy were a wonderful choice for a meal.

My husband and I look forward to having breakfast here every time we are in Traverse City. The Omelette Shoppe is never a disappointment! I always order the Leelanau Scramble and my husband orders the Veggie Skillet. Generous portions, great potatoes, delicious cherry preserves so...More

Two locations in town. Both offer great food at reasonable prices. SOmetimes a long wait for the downtown location. A little further east on Front near Garfield is the second and larger location. Just as good food.
