Stir fry is great! So is the chopped sirloin and the omelets! This restaurant has recently been remodeled with new owners. Truly a gem in our little city.

Went to The Oakwood Cafe for breakfast twice on trip to Detroit area. Service and food were both excellent! One of the few places I've been to lately that can properly cook bacon so that is crispy but not over cooked.

This is the best breakfast joint around. You can get one of several breakfast specials for $4. Including eggs,toast, meat and potatoes. Any beverage adds $2 to the bill so I drink water here. Good friendly service and staff.
