Best of 517: Breakfast Foods

Best restaurants for food in the morning.

Best of Breakfast

We asked readers: Where is your favorite place to grab breakfast in the 517? What do you love on the menu?


Soup Spoon Cafe

The Soup Spoon Café on East Michigan Avenue in Lansing came up both in our online and in-person polls. The Soup Spoon has been open throughout the pandemic in whatever way possible, pivoting to offer takeout and even going as far as delivering to their customers’ vehicles during cold weather. The Black Forest omelet was mentioned among the Soup Spoon favs, as well as the Chowder Head and the Baja Scramble. Sounds delish!


Fidler’s On the Grand

Called “North Lansing’s Neighborhood Kitchen,” 517 Magazine reader Karen Ehman said Fidler’s on the Grand couldn’t go wrong with anything on its menu, but she especially loves the Louisiana French toast sticks with house-made tart raspberry sauce. Fidler’s is on Grand River Avenue in Lansing. A look at its Facebook page will show you the playful attitude of the business and how the owners have some fun with original dishes like breakfast tacos. We’re tempted by the Jamestown biscuits and gravy.


Be My Guest

The cinnamon roll French toast and the biscuits and gravy were among the favs mentioned at Be My Guest Café in Fowlerville. Facebook reviews will tell you the egg over medium comes out perfectly and calls it a rarity at restaurants. Be My Guest fans say its worth the trip to check out the best all-day breakfast in the region, including breakfast sandwiches, burritos, omelets of all kinds and homemade hash.


Honorable Mentions

There is no doubt there are dozens of great breakfast joints in the region. Others mentioned included Jalepenos in downtown Lansing for the popular breakfast burritos, Swedes in Mulliken, Dan’s Coney Island on South Pennsylvania Avenue in Lansing and American Bistro in Eastwood Towne Center, just to name a few. Didn’t hear yours? Stay tuned to our Facebook page for our monthly “Best of” food social polls and keep supporting local restaurants.
