Everyday People Cafe is our favorite restaurant in West Michigan. The food is consistently excellent and we love the servers and owner/chef Matt Balmer. My favorite is anything with ahi tuna and my husband loves most everything. We eat there 2-3 times/month.

I came here for a Christmas dinner party for work. The service was amazing. The food was flavorful and cooked to perfection. The wine that I had paired perfectly with my chicken per the waitresses suggestion. Amazing! Would LOVE to come back again!

Fantastic Sunday Brunch. Eggs Benny and Cornbeef Hash with unlimited champagne. The food, beverage and service was five star. The staff was very attentive and kept the champagne topped off when they walked by. The food was prepared to perfection.
