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

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

Very good healthy food options prepared fresh. Not the usual burgers and fries common at many museums. We have had the paninis as well as the vegetables and hommus plates. We are vegetarians and happy to find great options! Good coffee as well.

The cafe has been trasformed to order and sit down restaurant. Foods are mostly Michigan influenced. Not impressed with the wax left on the slice of cheese on my sandwich but the soup was good.
