Breakfast
IN THE HEART OF NORTHVILLE
Our mission is simple: to celebrate the diverse, hustling, resilient city of Detroit and its people by consistently providing amazing food and a stellar experience. Our expansive menu has something for everyone: whether it’s our take on the famous Maurice salad that your grandparents remember from Hudson’s, a heaping stack of Cinnabun pancakes for the dessert-for-breakfast person in your life, a Voodoo benedict for those who love an adventurous take on an old classic, or Mickey Mouse pancakes for the little ones, we’ve got you covered.

Founded in 2011, born in the heart of Detroit just before the city’s much-publicized revival began. Located on Woodward Avenue between Grand River & State St, our name is a nod to the iconic Hudson’s department store, which was located directly across the street on Woodward Avenue, and Detroit’s heyday as a bustling, cosmopolitan city. We have been blessed ever since to watch the city progress & grow around us.

    I was excited to check out this eatery after hearing great reviews about it. However, we probably should have picked a less popular day (Mother's Day) to explore this establishment. We had reservations, but we still waited 15 minutes for a table. This server was on it and very attentive. The food was good but not I gotta go back ...... . Over all experience was good.

    Fascinating menu. Poached Eggs that were cooked to perfection. A "puffy" beautifully plated omlete with unique ingredients. The noise level was close to unbearable in spite of requesting a table in a side area. Not the best venue if you are hearing impaired and wish to communicate with your dining partner. We plan on returning to try some of the other interesting menu items.

    Great food, but we made reservations and after 30 minutes of not being seated, luckily a couple of seats at the bar opened. Why make reservations if they don’t honor them.

    A very loud small space and the food is so lackluster. This is not a good spot unless you like sweet breakfast. Most good menu items are sweet. The savory items are drab and bland. This is a very expensive spot, IMO. Breakfast is usually cheaper but this restaurant doesn't use breakfast prices. All kids meals are $10, which isn't expensive, but for somewhere like here, it is.

    Always great food at Hudson Cafe. My fave— The Hudson salad. Enough for 2 meals! Everything I’ve had here was very good. Highly recommend for lunch or breakfast (available all day). It does get quite loud when busy though.

    The food was good and our server was good. The hostess wouldn’t sit the other person in my party until she ‘sees me’ and there was chaos trying to get her attention. Then she proceeded to seat a woman next to us who was waiting on the rest of her party. Either enforce the ‘entire party must be present’ or don’t. But the host/hostess shouldn’t pick and choose who has to wait and who doesn’t. Both parties mentioned above were parties of 2.

    Awesome, fast service and our server got everything right for a large table and had no problem separating the bill. Rhe food was very underseasoned and the voodoo eggs Benedict was very bland. The food and mimosa were a bit pricey. Before tip, it was $60 for one coffee, one mimosa and 2 meals with no upgrades.

    We had an excellent experience at Hudson Cafe for a birthday brunch. Food arrived quickly and was delicious! Our server was attentive, but left us enough space to enjoy our conversation in peace. My only critiques are menu-based. The Hudson Cafe offers a large selection of cocktails, but only had four varieties of canned beer on hand. A larger selection would have been nice. Additionally, I ordered the Huevos Rancheros with chorizo and loved it, but I was also craving something sweet. I would have loved to be able to order a single pancake as a side, but that option was not available to me. Overall, my friend and I had a lovely experience at The Hudson Cafe! The food and service were impeccable, and my only criticisms are pretty minor and were not ultimately detrimental to my experience. I will be returning with my husband very soon!

    Food was very good with the exception of the triple triple omelet. The bacon inside the omelette was very tough. Otherwise, the food was very good . Would return again . Please beware of the floor. Slippery, especially when wet. Service was excellent!

    We went for a birthday brunch. While I'd say the menu offered a wide range of options, I felt it was lacking in the egg/breakfast department - or, perhaps I just didn't care for the choices offered! Our server was polite enough, but no one came and refilled our water glasses. Noise level was LOUD and we found it difficult to hear one another which disrupted the mood for us. Food was good and portions plentiful, but nothing I have to rush back for.

    We all had the corned beef hash with either over easy, poached and over medium eggs. They were cooked perfectly. We had cheesy grits, Breakfast potatoes and all had the pancakes. Everything was delicious!!! The pancakes were so fluffy and my favorite part. We also got mimosas and it is a great size for the price, you don’t get a splash. You get a whole mini bottle!

    The main course of the Vanilla Marscapone French Toast was subpar in taste, but was visually pleasing. The fruit on top could’ve been macerated to preserve them better and to add more flavor, and the Marscapone was artificial tasting, like packaged icing. The seating arrangements make it so that you are in very close quarters to the next table. And the staff weren’t that inviting. The sides I had, (Scrambled eggs cooked soft, house potatoes, and turkey sausage) were basic.
