    The Pancakes were great. Very big, but soft and fluffy. Tasted authentic and homemade, not like it came out of a mix. Would recommend!

    Nov 19 ,2023 my friend had made reservations for my birthday… we even left a credit card number our reservations were at 2:15 we got there at 2 … I went in the bathroom first it was the worst bathroom I had ever seen in my life and everyone in that bathroom was complaining I told the waitress and her response was “ I hope they are getting to it it WAS clean this morning !’ My friend reminded our waitress when we sat down. It was my birthday she didn’t say a word … the food was just ok for the price …we hear other parties and the staff singing happy birthday to other tables and we were rushed to get the bill … my friend asked the manager do you do anything for birthdays ? We just heard you singing at other tables the mangers reply was yes we give out waffles but our kitchen is closed my friend explain she told the waitress at the beginning And it was on the reservations.. she stomped off and said she’d go make one … meanwhile the bus man tells us to hurry up and pay the bill the lights are going off and do you like to sleep at your job I want to leave … I kinda chuckled because I thought he was joking ! Nopeeeee they turned the lights off came back like -5 mins later with the waffle and a to go box! What a disaster and disappointment

    Food was delish, everyone in our party enjoyed it. As the only Celiac, I was very bummed they didn't have a separate toaster for my gf toast. They seem to do everything else pretty well.

    Very enjoyable brunch, we had several different dishes and all were exceptional. Service was great, good coffee too. I would recommend reservations as they were turning people away, usually a good sign that the food is awesome.

    They’re food is fantastic but the wait time and stressed the staff is under with the amount of people waiting— takes away from a pleasant experience. The place has been outgrown and expansion should be discussed. The noise level is a bit much as well. The food keeps the people coming back but the experience itself needs development.

    My new favorite place for Brunch!!! Me & my wife have tried several places from Auburn Hills to Ferndale, The Hudson Cafe is where I'm going for a great brunch date. The food was excellent, Everything! We had Omelettes, Hash Browns, Grits, Bacon, The Hudson Coffee & Pancakes. Evrod Cassimy said he was gonna miss these Cinnabunn Pancakes, I see why. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful, food came out in a timely manner. My total bill was less than any other place we've recently visited, I'm definitely coming back to The Hudson Cafe
