The food is always great and make sure you save room for ice cream. The train running around the rooms ceiling is such fun. The adults and kids will love it🚂

We don't always find great superman ice cream. Yum Yum Tree has great flavor of Superman and the best Chocolate Chip Mint ice cream with shaved chocolate. Meals are okay. Lots of dessert choices. We will be back.

We ate lunch here. Good didn't thrill my taste buds. However, the ice cream was delicious. And their dessert menu looks amazing. Great for a sweet retreat!

Its a Brighton Classic, and if you have not gone I suggest you do, either for yourself, with friends or with the kids. Michigan classics like Superman, or blue moon in a waffle cone and walking around downtown Brighton, or the mill pond are the key to a good experience in our town, especially in the summertime.

Well I think some great changes have happened. The service is still very slow and forget orders. Perhaps they will work on that. Would go for coffee or to see music.

Great food, great environment, and good luck getting out without ice cream! The California Chicken panini was delicious, and their chips are amazing.

The Yum Yum Tree is an institution in Brighton for families. For freshly prepared home cooking and great desserts this is the place to come to. In the summer the line extends out the door for ice cream cones.

Food quality is poor. Ice cream is good. Sevice was ok but not outstanding. We won't be returning anytime in the near future.

Once again, we had a great time at this place! The food is pretty good. Nice wait staff. A little slow on the timing of food order to being served but a great time in a "back in time" type of place.
