True to its name, the omelette shop offers many different omelettes. Ours were very tasty along with the home made bread. Many other options including waffles and pancakes. Good stuff!

We ordered the Leelanau scramble and an omlette with cornbeef hash. The omlettes were delicious. The cinnamon raisin glazed bread that they came with were also great. Personally, I think you can skip the cinnamon roll. The cinnamon raisin bread is better. The meal was also reasonably priced for 2 kids and 2 adults.

Best breakfast we had in traverse city. They were crowded and we had to wait awhile, but the food was worth it. It would take many visits to explore all the appealing options. The corn beef hash was a favorite. My youngest was worried two pancakes would not be enough and then couldn't finish. Only disappointment was with the chocolate... More

Breakfast is great but good price, friendly staff and people/families just enjoying breakfast. Only 2 such places in town but this one has a line waiting to get in. Stop into the adjacent gift shop or for my 45 minute wait I took a nice walk. Definitely not a hurry-up place.

We went here for breakfast and could not believe how huge the menu was. They have everything! Not a very big place so get there early! Parking is free on the street on Sundays.

First off, I want to say that our server was lovely. This review has nothing to do with her. I tipped her according to her service, not our meal. This restaurant has been a staple when traveling to the Traverse City area for years. Always my favorite for breakfast or brunch! I was recently on a color tour with my... More

Really good breakfast and good menu choices - very busy though, plan to wait if you're not there early. Not the best service at our visit, but might have been our particular waitstaff.
