Ive eaten breakfast at the Park Cafe, across the street from Liberty Park,many times. Its always very busy and having to wait for a table isnt unusual. The wait is worth it. Excellent food and large portions. Highly recommended.

We had a 30 minute wait, but the food was delivered within minutes of ordering. Worth the wait. Their biscuits and gravy was great, but their French toast was the best my wife has ever had. There were real blueberries in their pancakes. A bonus was their service!

My wife and I had breakfast here and the food was awesome. When we arrived, there was a good line to be seated, but we were surprised how quickly they moved through it. My wife had the breakfast sandwich and I had the Michigan Hash. Our food came out fast, hot, and tasted great. The bill was very reasonable as... More

Being right next to a giant park and what I think is the Zoo makes this an ideal spot for families. We were with our college age son but enjoyed the setting. Service was very good and our food came out within 7-8 minutes of ordering! The outdoor seating area is just so-so but they do have some.

Next to the beautiful park, it's really amazing spot to hang out with friends or family for "petit déjeuner". The food is so tasty and the spicy chai tea is really good. The price is very competitive. Very popular place so queuing is expected. Je reviendrai (I'll be back)

Took my wife to The Park Cafe for her birthday breakfast, as we had heard (and read) good things. I'll tell you right now, if you have a big party (large amount of people), don't go here. Parking is a nightmare, and the building itself is small. Those were really the only things I didn't like about it. The service... More

Trendy but cheap cafe in a nice location overlooking a Park. It will be busy when you go but the service is quick and pleasant staff. The food is very good, we had Porridge and a traditional American breakfast. The portion was plentiful and well presented.

It's been about 20 years since we've been at the Park Cafe. They went through a period where it wasn't very good. Those days are over. It's a very small cafe so when we arrived on Saturday morning we expected a long wait. What was said to be 15 minutes wait turned out to be less than 5. The super... More

I went to The Park Cafe after a trip to the aviary with my family. I was so impressed with how kind the staff were to our group of 3 adults and 4 small children. They brought animal crackers, crayons, and coloring pages for the little ones. The food was really reasonably priced, the portions were huge, and the quality... More
