Coffee Shop

“Nice coffee shop for working. You can get coffee or order from the full Crow's Nest menu (upstairs) and have them bring it down while you work in the coffee shop. Decent coffee drinks and yummy baked goods. Plentiful outlets. ”

Cocktail Bar
$$$
“Don't be scared off when I tell you this is at the top of an organic local grocer. Led by renowned Chef Jason Tillman(Le Cirque, Union Square Cafe, The Strand Bistro) food coming out of this kitchen is of the highest quality. You definitely pay top dollar, but this place is on another level of other restaurants in the area. If you are on a budget, grab a pizza and a salad. Both are the best in town! ”

“Oldest Coffee Shop in Kalamazoo. They use espresso ice cubes in their iced coffee so as your ice melts your coffee doesn't get watered down! Genius! Great little niche in the back of the shop.”

American Restaurant

“Hardly anyone but locals know about this breakfast place, but it is a small-town diner type. Gary and his wife have been operating this place for years, and the food is great and it has large portions. Each Saturday morning, Gary features creative specialties on the whiteboard with ample descriptions! The price is ridiculously cheap and the food is great! This place is only 5-10 minutes from our location!”
