    The Insider Experience

    Eat, stay, and play like a local in Grand Rapids, Michigan

    Tag - Breakfast

    San Chez breakfast 1
    Place a well-prepared ham & cheese omelet on my plate, with a bowl of fresh fruit on the side, and some piping hot tea in my cup and my morning is so much happier. Especially when I don’t have to cook it or clean it up myself. That’s the beauty of eating out for breakfast, which is easy to do in Grand Rapids. We have so many great breakfast spots that it’s worth driving around town to try each of them. The less traditional breakfast eaters, those who roll their eyes at the boring omelet that brings me so much happiness, are in luck: these menus offer lots of creative breakfast fare.  photo courtesy of Wolfgang's Restaurant Wolfgang’s ( Eastown) My kids love the Cinnamon French toast here so much that they’re willing to endure waiting in line for a table, which almost always happens when we dine at this local favorite. Don’t by shy: step away from your usual order and try the Jamaican Jerk Chicken Frittata or the Pecan Belgian Waffle. So good! Westsider Café (Walker Ave.) As the name indicates, this local gem is located on the west side of GR, a little north of downtown. Go for the Huevos Rancheros, with smoked pulled pork…you won’t be sorry, or hungry, afterwards.... Read More ›
