I had the opportunity to have lunch at Malias. Conveniently located in downtown Battle Creek it offers a nice variety of options. I had the lamb burger which was excellent . The service was equally excellent.

Took my daughter's out for a birthday dinner and really enjoyed every dish we tried. Would like to see more non pasta options for those with that issue, but I personally thought everything was perfect!

I loved the food and atmosphere. Prices were a little exaggerated for Battle Creek. Service was adequate and great keeping my children occupied with treats until dinner was served
