About the restaurant
An homage to owner Kris Lelcaj’s father, “babo” (slang for “dad” in Albanian) is a gourmet, all-day diner in Midtown Detroit. We will feature a menu comprised of creative, artisanal takes on comfort food classics that will be served up in a bright, lively ambiance.
We pride ourselves on carrying products of the highest quality and social responsibility from local, small batch producers. We will serve our guests, team members and community with a brand of unmatched hospitality. We will cultivate a dining experience that is as remarkable and unique as the city we call home.

The staff was friendly and sweet. The food was presented beautifully and tasted even better than it looked. The vibe of Babo is pretty laid back and comfortable, we saw lots of smiling faces for a Tuesday morning. I will definitely be back here again soon!

From burgers to tacos, our menu offers a range of delicious options.

We live the craft lifestyle - beer, cocktails, and even craft food made from scratch. With a dedication to local breweries sustainability and community engagement, HopCat offers craft beer and great food in a vibrant atmosphere for an inclusive, unforgettable experience.

We had a great experience. The service was excellent, the food came out fairly quickly and the place was packed! With that being said, it was extremely warm with the doors wide open on an 85 degree day and it was quite loud but overall we really enjoyed our visit and plan to return in the future

About the restaurant
an intimate 48-seat neighborhood restaurant in royal oak, michigan. we strive to be thoughtful about the food we plate, atmosphere we create, & energy we spread.

our goal at beppé is simple: to be intentional about the food & drink we serve, while fostering a welcoming environment.

whether you love beppé for our house-made pasta, to share with those you love plates, summer patio, thoughtfully curated cocktails, or a quality bottle of wine, we're here to be your spot & can't wait for you to keep coming back.

as a smaller establishment, we feel obligated to accommodate and serve all customers who want to dine with us in a timely manner. with that said, we do have policies limiting length of reservations. groups of 2-3 are allowed 90 minutes. groups 4+ are allowed 120 minutes. we ask that this policy is taken into consideration before choosing to dine with us.

bar seating is first come first serve.

we do not offer separate checks for groups of 5+.

The beet salad with whipped feta is worth a trip on its own but everything was packed with flavor and worth every penny. Will definitely return.
