Weekend Brunch at Mama Bear's

I knew I was missing out when I heard lots of people talked about great food at Mama Bear's Cafe. Finally, I made it there for a weekend brunch, with my friend, Lynne and her husband, Gary. We definitely enjoyed the food, and were glad there's place like this in town.

Mama Bear's is located on Turner Street in Old Town half a block off of Grand River Avenue, with many art galleries and specialty stores nearby. The place is a lovely relaxing and cozy cafe'. We went there quite late, so many items in their pastry cases were gone. We all started our meal with a nice cup of a latte'.

I had an omelette with tomatoes, spinach, roasted red peppers, havarti cheese, and sausage. The portion is very generous. All ingredients are fresh, and mostly local. It was delicious, I would order that again when going back.

Gary ordered an omelette as well. His had roasted red peppers and turkey bacon. Nothing was left on his plate, so I am pretty sure he loved his food. Our dishes came with buttered toasts.

Mama Bear's is also known as a vegan-friendly restaurant. They also have some gluten-free items. Lynne had tempeh sandwiches, and she loved it.

With their reputation of having the best homemade pastries and goodies in town, we just had to try some! The three of us shared an eclair and a cream puff. Those crispy light pastry shells, filled with light and fluffy cream were amazing! We were so full with our food, and didn't think we would have finished those goodies when we saw the size of them. But we did anyway...

With full stomach and happy heart, we left with the smiles on our face.
