Grand Rapids, MI Saturday Breakfast/Brunch

Coming to GR this weekend, and I'll be meeting friends for breakfast/brunch on Saturday.
Anyone have any good recommendations? Prefer somewhere where we can get a good
bloody mary and a full bar.

  1. haven't been there for bfast myself but have been a number of times for dinner and they do an excellent job at san chez restaurant right downtown. They do serve bfast and if it is anything like dinner it will be fabulous. If you can do w/o the bloody marys and deal w/ a more pedestrian place, the best breakfast in GR for my money is Real Food Cafe, the original on eastern between alger and 28th st or the branch location on northland drive. The northland drive location is larger so your wait would be shorter.

    Another option and kind of funky and has outdoor seating as well as inside is red ball jet cafe on plainfield. Another option is Bentham's in the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, which has a nice view of the Grand River and would have alcohol available.

      Prison cook,

      You are my hero! San Chez is EXACTLY what I was looking for!

        you're welcome. I hadn't thought to look at their web site for the bfast menu before. Thinking maybe you did? At any rate, come back after this weekend and let me know what you thought of it. Enjoy!
