We expected this to just be a typical museum fast food restaurant, but it was so much better. I had the Michigan Cafe Chicken Salad and it was excellent--fresh, lots of variety in it--walnuts, dried fruit, fresh apples, fresh greens, hobo crouton, deliciously prepared chicken, and the dressing was great (but you didn't need much). The only thing I would... More

We originally wanted to have an afternoon snack break in Lamys Diner and actually sat down and enjoyed sitting in the authentic car. However, before a wait staff came along - it became very clear that it was way too hot to be enjoyed. So, we walked over to the Michigan Cafe which is quite large and well ventilated. The... More

It is always nice to visit this place after a wonderful afternoon at the Henry Ford. I love the homemade dinners that include sides. It's nice to get a nice hot dinner type meal or just a snack. They have something for everyone .

I love taking a break to snack here during or after a visit . It has a nice selection for almost every taste . I love that you can get a nice hot dinner type of meal with all the fixings but if you don't want that...there are other things you can get as well. The price is ok but... More

We ate at the Cafe while touring the Henry Ford museum. The food was good. a little pricy for what it is but not outrageous.

This restaurant is located inside the Henry Ford Museum, and we ate lunch here while visiting the museum. We ate early around 11am, and I'm glad we did, because the line was out the door when we left shortly after 12pm. They have a much bigger menu variety than the other diner inside the museum. There is also another hotdog... More

I wasn't expecting much from an eatery in a museum but I was pleasantly suprised. The Cuban was good "needed a little more mustard". My wife had the roast chicken club that had actual roast chicken on it "very good". We both opted for the arugula salads which was fresh. The kids mac and cheese was gobbled up by our... More

In years passed, this was our cafe of last resort as the food was mediocre and the service was middling. No more. Wow - all 5 of us ordered different menu items and everyone raved about how good their choice tasted and looked. Fabulous. Better yet, the pricing scale has changed. No longer overpriced and underwhelming, we felt we got... More

We stopped here to have a late lunch while visiting the museum. Its a bit of an odd arrangement to order/pay & then be served but the lunch was excellent - the soup and the Cuban sandwich were great.

We had a tour set up at the H.R. to go to the factory tour, so we ate beforehand as we knew it would be a few hours. While we were not impressed by the menu selections the first time we had come, and gone to G.F.V., we gave the menu another look. While most of it is locally sourced... More
