Harvest Moon Cafe, Michigan Ave, Ypsilanti, Michigan Wait staff were fast, friendly and pleasant. I really hate writing reviews like this because so many good people are making their lively hoods and the owners and managers put many hours trying to produce quality products. We came here because some acquaintances recommended it. It is said that the breakfasts are great... More

Stick with breakfast. Avoid the pot pie. Skip the meatloaf! Bad coffee. Pleasant service. Fairly clean.

I had one bite and couldn't stomach any more. It was disgusting, The meatloaf wasn't like anything I had ever seen, was old and stale and had a fiber type... More

The staff are great. And with the location being just off of I94 and US 23, makes it super convenient for lunch or dinner.

Went there for breakfast on a snow day from school. Great food and excellent staff! I was surprised more people were not there. We've been for lunch before as well and it was really good too. Our favorite so far is breakfast though! Will definitely be going back.

Fast friendly service. They have several breakfast specials if you arrive before 11am. My husband had the silver-dollar pancakes and bacon. Not really enough for a hungry guy but we planned on him eating half of my meal. I had a ham and cheese omelette, hash browns, toast. My only complaint was that there was very little ham in the...

Best omelette around. Ham and cheese supreme. Prices are reasonable, atmosphere is cozy. I especially like the multivitamin toast and the strawberry jelly.

The breakfast options will meet every peraon's favorites. My coffee cup was constantly filled by the wait staff. I enjoyed eggs, bacon, hash browns, and toast. There are specials on the board. I will have to try lunch sometime soon.

Been coming here since it changed names and always loved the home cooking. Tonight ended a 20 year streak for this location and my family. Found a very long hair in my salad. Sent it back the waitress was apologetic. Our food came out and my sons fresh fries had little beard like hairs sprinkled across the top. Had to... More

The hamburgers are real beef. They also have breakfast specials that won't break the bank. Parking is on site. Wait staff makes you feel like family.
