We were touring through from Detroit to Niagara by bus and train. We ended up nearby with a 4 hour lay over in the early hours of the morning. Great little cafe. One table with guys in from a late party, another table with two cops on it and then us, looking like hobo's. Breakfast was good, portion size was... More

Excellent! Quiet place to talk and have a good meal with out spending out of budget. The desserts are out of this world, so rich and nummy it should be shared. The staff was nice and courteous and came to check on us often. Made a fresh pot of coffee so it would be fresh with dessert.

Whether meeting for business breakfast or family lunch or even an after late movie snack this is the place to go. Large portions and good quality food is a given.

After performing at the Hessler Street Fair, a friend took me to My Friends Restaurant to grab a bite before I headed back to Detroit. The menu wasn't very impressive. I ordered a catfish dinner, which the waitress told me came with two pieces of fish, but when I received my dinner there was only one piece. I'm glad my... More

I'm a Reuben lover. This place was very good for that sandwich. The one thing that stood out however was the service. I wish I could remember her name, but the waitress that helped me out was full of nice things to say. Not just me, she travelled from table to table making everyone feel like they were the most...

We have tried to go here several times but each time the servers are so rude. We have a group of 4 to 10 each time we come and they have never been nice. Things happen. They do not like if you have a child either. The looks you get are cruel. Our 3 year old is very well behaved... More

This restaurant is a comfortable place to enjoy with friends if you are into comfort food at a reasonable price.It's a large restaurant with friendly greeters and equally friendly staff. They always try to tailor the dishes to your desires and never have a problem with doing that. The servers try to clue you into what's good and what they... More

The place can use some face-lifting, but they serve pretty decent meal with a very reasonable price. You are not going to have a mind-blowing dining experience, but this is a good place to come.

I've been to this restaurant multiple times with multiple different guests. Always a good comment about the food. Desserts here are great. The tiramasu is homemade and the best I ever had. Soups are great.
