This is the prefect brunch restaurant downtown Detroit!! The red velvet pancakes are the best. My kids also love the regular pancakes and the portions are plentiful!

Great service, great food at great prices. Came two days in a row while in town for the weekend, will be my go to brunch spot whenever I’m in Detroit.

Honestly the food was great. Though the menu is pretty scarce to none for vegans unless you eat tofu or beyond meat (but even the bun has egg in it so...) Also the portion sizes were plentiful for the price.

A trendy spot with high end brunch and brunch item. Nice seating outside and a waitstaff that really hustles. Food is very good and nicely presented. I recommend the waffle fries as the side--they were crispy but not greasy. The crepes with Banana and Nutella had waaaay too much Nutella. (I know--I never thought I'd say that, but you ... read more

I used to come here every Sunday with my boyfriend. It’s pretty comfy on the inside and there is a coffee bar toward the front I believe. It’s super busy but it’s also easy to put in a reservation. Breakfast is consistent and tasty. At some point I believe they should put a bit of money into remodeling but it’s still a nifty little ... read more

I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was very nice. You need to schedule an appointment when you are at least 5 miles away. You check in at the specified time and you start playing the waiting game. (Waited for 2 hours) When we finally got in, it had a urban style to it. The menu can be scanned from the table or looked up online. (I s ... read more

The food here is always delicious. I have never had a bad meal. The food is fresh, hot and tastes good. The drinks were good as well. Hudson Cafe has done a pretty good job of adapting to business in a pandemic. The outside area was setup well and had correct distancing. I didn't like that I had to pull up menus on my phone however I ... read more

Sadness it was closed because I was closer to dinner than breakfast. I’ve been here before and it was delicious, I’ll have to be more aware of the clock and plan my visit accordingly.

This is definitely a nice place to get breakfast. The eggs benedict was solid and the cappuccino was nice, in fact the one egg was just gorgeous... It almost looked like merengue. The cappuccino was a little too foamy (dry in coffee culture). It's important to know that menus are not being given out and you either have to scan the Q ... read more

Hey @ Jack Goss. Just read your review. Quick question for you. Do you not think Covid is real? Being a “doctor” yourself, one would think you’d wear a mask in public. I know many think this a hoax, just as many think chiropractors are a hoax. Stop being a selfish jerk and wear a mask.

First time here at The Hudson Cafe ...
First time here at The Hudson Cafe, I came during the COVID-19 era. They were very cautious how many people they allowed into the restaurant. This made the wait time estimate longer than expected, but during this time as customers we have to be understanding. Once we got in, all of the tables were spaced apart which made me feel a li ... read more

food looked and tasted very good. they could have more vegan options to choose from and the ones they do have are pretty expensive for what it is, especially the tofu dish. the waitresses and waiters work very hard to keep this establishment clean which is great in times like this!

Everything about our experience was amazing. We had a short wait before being seating. We could get a beverage to sit with or to walk around with. A short text to my phone let us know our table was ready. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was delicious! I highly recommend the portobello omelette and the whole grain toast.

I've been here twice but this time for for my extended birthday celebration. We went with a group of 5 for Sunday brunch. The wait wasn't bad 25 min and had the yelp line notifications which is nice.

Went to the Hudson Cafe on a Sunday in March around 11am.  Took a good 45 minutes to get seated at a table.  I suggest putting your name on the waiting list via the yelp app.  

All the food sounded delish on the menu but I ended up going with the Apple Pecan French toast (pictured).  My partner decided to go with the corn beef

Great place to get breakfast. Friendly staff. Comfy waiting area at the front. The catfish & waffles was great. Only thing I would change is the time that they open up. I’d expect a breakfast place to open at 6am or 7am. On my busy days I have to be in the office by 8am.
