Breakfast & Brunch
As of June 22, Michigan's mask mandate and indoor/outdoor capacity limitations have been lifted. We recommend you contact the individual establishments to verify their safety policies.
If breakfast and brunch were a competition, Ann Arbor would win, hands down. You’ve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we made that up as an excuse for Sunday morning mimosas and stacks of pancakes that make for the perfect, instagrammable excursion.
The brunch scene in Ann Arbor is highly regarded and well sought after. A good (well, phenomenal) place to start is at Sava’s on a Sunday with their beloved brunch buffet. With your choice of a mimosa, bloody Mary, or coffee, the buffet rotates its offerings each week and will never disappoint your sweet or savory tooth. Egg options are a favorite, from frittatas to mini quiches, complemented by potato hashes, and followed up by a waffle bar and sweet treats like tarts or cannoli!
Other favorite brunch spots include Avalon Café, with highly regarded avocado toast and Detroit Street Filling Station, who offers brunch on Sunday afternoons, and has everyone running towards their tofu scramble and French toast!
A breakfast staple any day of the week is aMa Bistro, always full of students and families devouring their omelets and breakfast favorites, like eggs benedict and stuffed French toast. Angelo’s Restaurant has lines down the street on the weekends, as townies and students alike obsess over their homemade bread and raisin toast! Fleetwood Diner is also noteworthy – their hippie hash is practically famous.
