We ate here twice while in Detroit. Excellent service and great selection for a good hearty breakfast. I’m vegan and had their tofu scramble. Highly recommend.

I've been here a few times and the food is good. Nothing to write home about. I am not sure it's worth the wait to get in seeing as they do not take reservations

Stopped in at 2pm and restaurant closes at 3pm. That should not be an excuse for the quality of the food. My husband had corned beef hash. It was dry and tough. It was served with hash browns...not made from scratch. They were cubed potatoes....More

It was good, but not as great as everyone talks about. I had the Eggs Benedict and they were good, but nothing to write home about. Service was okay, but not good by any means.

So good! Always a wait, but worth it! It's a good opportunity to try new things because everything is delicious. I like the French toast:)

During our stay in Detroit, we visited Hudson Cafe twice. Overall, the food was pretty solid, but nothing stood out to me. You don't get many options in downtown Detroit anyway for brunch, so I would still recommend of visiting.

Well you have to park along Woodard Ave in a parking lot. Take the new Q Line and get off at Grand Circus Park.
