I visited while reuniting with some Detroit, MI neighborhood friends. I loved the high ceilings and large windows, enabling us to people watch. Since I am on weight watchers, I selected spinach salad and mushroom soup. My friends ordered the "Oprah award winning" grilled cheese!!

I ate here for brunch on Christmas Eve with a friend who was in town. They told me it would be about 20 minutes for a table, but I was seated within 5 minutes or so. The service was a bit slow, but the Cafe Latte was delicious. I ordered the Plain Jane scramble and would get it again. Note... More

We had a work team gathering after the holiday. Why not breakfast? This was my first experience eating at Cafe Muse which is located in the wonderful and trendy Royal Oak Michigan. All I can say is wow! The food is outstanding. Very good selections and very good portions. When my daughter was in town I took her to Cafe... More

I am here a few times a month for lunch and it's always one of my favorites. The food is always quite tasty and it's on the high side of average for lunch but it's well worth it. The only thing Thar consistently annoys me is the sheer number of menus that you get when you sit down. There seem... More

I met two clients from out of town and they enjoyed lunch here. The guy from England had his first Grape Faygo pop (not my choice) and a good pork sandwich. The other guy from Buffalo, NY, had the grilled cheese. I had a nice burger. It was all good. Server was a little ditzy and we had to make... More

We arrived about 11:30 and had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. They do take reservations, so it may be a good idea to call ahead, as the place is very busy. Once we were seated, we got our waters right away, but it took, a while for a server to come and take our order. The items... More

I went for a business lunch with a colleague. I ordered the cheesy grits with lobster and crabmeat. It was delicious! My colleague ordered the grilled cheese with rib meat on the sandwich. He was not disappointed either. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Definitely going back.

Dining with a large family gets tricky. Someone wants breakfast. Someone wants lunch. Someone needs gluten-free. And so on! But what we all agree on is Cafe Muse. The menu is loaded with yummy options, even if I do tend to order the grilled cheese sandwich every time! We've never had a bad meal and the service is professional and... More
