It is not hard to see why Lucy’s Café comes up in conversations about the best brunch in Grand Rapids. Founded in 2016, the team at Lucy’s puts their spin on various French, Mexican, and American dishes with delightful results. Their menu is a treasure trove of desirable dishes from velvety crepes to a luscious Croque Madame, gourmet omelets to a food coma-inducing Breakfast Pot Pie.
For a dish you won’t commonly find around town, we recommend the Shakshuka. It’s easily one of the best brunch dishes we’ve ever eaten. Artfully presented and loaded with flavor, this skillet sensation is highlighted by its simmered tomato sauce, spinach, poached eggs, and a touch of feta cheese that adds a salty component to the dish. The egg yolks blend with tomato sauce to create a colorful and flavorful mixture. Bountiful slices of buttery challah bread melt in your mouth after dunking them in the saucy remains.
If you’re in the mood for something sinful, the Bacon Roll is as naughty as they come. Lucy’s makes the cinnamon croissant roll in-house, finishing it with a tag team of bacon cream cheese and bacon bits.
Salads and sandwiches complete the menu, making it easy to find something appealing for just about everyone. Open seven days a week, there’s no excuse not to try Lucy’s Café.
Lucy’s Café is located at 1747 Plainfield Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49505.
