We had tried to stop by this place over the summer, but they were remodeling or something at the time. We had finally gotten back to check this place off the bucket list. It comes highly recommended by many as one of the better breakfast places in town. However, it is often slammed, and even Google will tell you that... More

A cute tiny restaurant upstairs from a bar, where people line up on the stairs and out the door for delicious, creative breakfasts. I wouldn't do it on a busy day, but on this Saturday, it was well worth a half hour wait. The French toast with lemon glaze, strawberries, and whipped cream was delicious, and the service was friendly... More

I've went hear many Sundays with my family and had a great time. The food is great and the servers are friendly! My only concern would be the shortage of seating. It's a small area, with many customers, get ready to wait.

Our first trip here was for lunch, this time we came for breakfast and plan to return as often as we can. Crows Nest food offers so much FLAVOR, not your typical breakfast joint. I had the breakfast sandwich with bacon, spinach, prosciutto, egg and their 'dressing', BF enjoyed the Chorizo omelet with potatoes and we split a slice of... More

Seating is limited; plan on waiting. But it is worth it. Food was served quickly, friendly and tasted great. Large portions, friendly staff. Small as it is, you don't fee rushed at all.

I have been getting the chocolate chip pancakes every time I've gone here, but they have plenty of options and their french toast is delicious. The portions are big enough, and the location is nice. Cute even. It is above a coffee shop, and somewhat small but it adds to the ambiance. Parking is not ubiquitous, but not having that... More

Of course the seating is a bit limited and the wait list can be long however the food makes up for it all. I always leave happy and satisfied! Always look forward to going back.

This restaurant is a must go for anyone visiting Kzoo. The food is fresh and delicious and I have never left without feeling thoroughly satisfied with my meal and my service. My favorite is the Old Standby but the omelettes, French toast and sandwiches are all amazing! The servers are attentive and friendly. My favorite is Sarah! Treat your self... More
