As most people know, Ann Arbor has some really fun and delicious, local restaurants. Many are part of the campus experience with late night hours (love you, Pizza House), but one of the best things about the city is her collection of brunch choices. Whenever visiting friends in town, I try to catch up at one these places. The draw of freshly squeezed orange juice or feta omelet is too hard to resist.
Here’s a pic of us at Cafe Marie’s a year or so ago after a morning get together. This small cafe on Ann Arbor’s north side is a great place for conversation, people watching, and good eats. They also have a patio to enjoy the cool bit of a hot summer’s day.
Other fav brunch places:
Broken Egg – Great location on Main Street near the Farmer’s Market. Love the quirky, seasonal decor, and the early morning paper readers. Lots of locals here. Look for amazing specials daily, like turtle pancakes covered in caramel, pecans, and chocolate!
Angelo’s – Near the university’s medical campus. Typically crowded, but worth the wait. They’re famous for their homemade bread and the delicious french toast that’s made from it. Take note or be disappointed, this tasty treat is closed during July.
Fleetwood – Located on the corner of Liberty and Ashley, the diner is open 24 hours and has repeatedly won awards for best late night eats, best greasy spoon, and best people watching. Expect the usual fare of eggs, pancakes, and french toast, but be sure to try their signature dish: hippie hash. Hippie hash is a pile of hash browns topped with fresh broccoli, tomato, onion, green pepper, mushroom, and a healthy portion of feta cheese.
