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.

About the restaurant
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.

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!

My friend, our teenage daughters, and I had an exceptional time from the moment we stepped into the restaurant! The ambiance and décor were simply stunning, creating countless Instagram-worthy moments throughout our visit. Our server was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, offering fantastic recommendations from both the food and drink menus. Every member of the serving staff was equally impressive, ensuring our dining experience was seamless. I had the Rose Caprese Toast, and it exceeded all expectations! The flavors were wonderful, and the portion size was more than generous. Meanwhile, my friend had chicken and waffles, and her daughter said the cappuccino as the best she's ever had. Every aspect of the restaurant, from the décor to the smallest details like the cups, saucers, sugar cubes, unique specialty drinkware and cutlery, was impeccable. Despite living on the west side, the drive was entirely worthwhile. In fact, I've already made another reservation for a few weeks from now, and my daughter is eager to celebrate her birthday here with her girlfriends in June. Without a doubt, this restaurant deserves a perfect score of 10 out of 10!
