This was one of the best breakfasts, ever. It was so difficult to choose because everything sounded amazing. When you can make breakfast good taste amazing and unique with so many flavor explosions, I'm impressed. The Bloody Mary was also awesome. Everything can be made vegan, too.
Amazing restaurant with unique offerings and great service! I had the Grow Slam which was beyond delicious. My husband had the carnitas and he loved it too.
They also have a no gratuity policy and all the servers raved about it, and I must say I appreciated having that already factored into the pricing.
Shared the Grow ‘Slam’ with my partner because I really wanted to try the carrot cake pancakes. Was not disappointed! Great flavors and service here. And they seem to pay their staff well since they have eliminated gratuity. Would definitely go back. Recommend calling ahead to get on the waitlist.
This wonderfully plucky little place was a pleasant surprise on my visit to Saugatuck! I visited Sunday about noon, and it was rainy, so they only had indoor seating - so there was a wee bit of a wait, but it was SO worth it!
It was hard to decide what to order - they have a nice variety of alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks, and all the food sounded tasty! I ordered the Vegan Irish Coffee and the "GROW" Slam - which had a good variety of their fare to try (Carrot cake pancakes, potatoes, egg, sausage).
I like that they locally source everything they can - and they list the stores on the menu, so you can go visit them!
The prices may *seem* a bit high - BUT they are a gratuity-free restaurant, so please keep that in mind when dining there.
My server was amazing, and upon some inquiry I found he is the owner of the restaurant!
I look forward to eating there again when I'm on the west side of the state - and also checking out their dinner restaurant next door!
If only I could give this place 10 stars instead of 5. Let me tell you..when I say I don’t write reviews. I don’t write reviews. But this place! Definitely deserved time out of my day to write a review. Grow cafe + Bistro is CONSISTENTLY great every visit. It is v hard to find a local spot that gives you the 5 star experience very time- not only the food but the staff and owners. They are kind and helpful and give the best service. It is and will be a top favorite spot in Saugatuck.
We came on a Sunday and I’m not sure if it was the owner or an employee, but the person managing the front of house was fantastic. He was so accommodating, noticed when something was served to us missing food, and we also noticed he moved another table when they seemed cold by the door. Our server was attentive and the service was great. It’s a very nice atmosphere and an overall good experience. It was a little pricey for portion size and we found the syrups that came with the waffles pretty flavorless, but overall, the staff made the experience. Highlights were the breakfast sandwich, potatoes and carrot cake pancakes.
Great service and such great food and love the no tipping because they pay a livable wage. Say outside and had a wonderful brunch.
Amazing experience, really good food, tasty and healthy. Great service and they have a NO TIP POLICY which is unique in the US.
