The Robin's Nest is a fixture in the Eaton Rapids area. Known for it's sumptuous, well executed breakfasts and desserts. The farming community's patronage most any morning is a clear testament to both quality and value. It can get quite busy at times, so it does pay to avoid peak hours when possible. We have had occasions when there was... More

We were directed here by a local we met and we weren't disappointed. I had one of my favorite breakfasts, Pancakes, eggs and home made hash. Warning....the pancakes were huge and tasty. I ordered two and couldn't eat them all.

The owner of Robin's Nest is a wonderful person and many of the food options are really good. A nice touch for the kids is a basket of small toys and plenty of coloring books and crayons. If you want to get a touch of small town life and local character, there's a large farmer's table where local farmers gather... More

Thought I notice some negative reviews that was not our experience. We came for a late lunch about 1.30 p.m on a Wed. There were plenty of tables free and we got our pick. The food was simple but really good. I had the chicken noodle soup. The flavor was tasty and the noodles seemed homemade or very good quality... More

I used to love going to Robin's Nest but it seems like the quality of the food has gone down. Their breakfast is okay but isn't anything special.

Meet friends at Robin's Nest for breakfast. Ordered eggs with hash browns and hash. It came with toast or biscuit & gravy. Opted for the biscuit & gravy which was not very good. It was a white flower gravy over a biscuit. No sausage in the gravy and did not taste very good. The rest of the food was OK.... More

I've only been to the Robin's Nest once since they rebuilt. New building, same food, and greasy silverware. Not my cup of tea, tho many love it. Inexpensive and big servings.

We had visited back in November of 2012 and while the food was good the service was lacking. The service has improved and the food is as good as ever. While the new building lacks some of the charm of the former place (it burned down) it has a good atmosphere and is nice and easy place to get breakfast.
