Grand Rapids has all the luxuries of a metropolis with plenty of small-town Michigan charm.

Here’s a look at some of the finest places to start the day when in town.
Inside the JW Marriott Hotel, this stylish spot is a cafe, bistro, lounge and bar all wrapped into one.

When looking for a quick bite to eat instead of a more drawn out affair, Bagel Beanery has the perfect thing; the place has some great coffee and pretty unbelievable bagels. They bake the bagels fresh every day and have an assortment of options, going from the classics like sesame and blueberry to more signature bagels like the salsa pepperjack, cinnamon crunch, and the cheddar herb. Be sure to drop in and enjoy a bun from this, arguably Grand Rapids’ best bagel spot.

While the morning hours may mean a classic Michigan brewery isn’t quite the top thing on the menu, the Grand Rapids Brewing Company boasts a menu that makes brunches here almost as attractive as the bespoke brews and hops creations from behind the bar. Head in for some stacked burgers, all-American grilled meats and some truly fine Mexican-inspired entrees – the perfect fodder for a lazy lunchtime start.
