Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! When you can combine brunch and dessert into one sitting that’s great in itself but when you can combine it into one dish that means I’ll be back and probably soon.
Grey Ghost in Detroit does not disappoint. They serve brunch and dinner and I checked them out for brunch first and I am so happy I did. Their menu is perfect size, not overwhelming, but has a great range of items.
Before I get to the actual food I’ll start with the restaurant itself. It’s a gorgeous space but not huge so if you’re interested in going I would make sure to make reservations in advance. All of the seating inside is great, there are tables, a large booth for bigger parties, and a super cute outdoor area.
It was a beautiful morning so we chose to sit outside. The outdoor area was filled with succulents and other plants making it feel like you were in a really nice backyard setting. I’d love to go for dinner one evening to see the lights turned on above.
Next, on to the most important part, the food. We each got a very different dish and we each loved what we got. We started with a cinnamon roll from their “sweets” section and it was amazing. The roll wasn’t too cinammony and they put the perfect amount of icing on top.
I ordered the crème brûlée pancakes and I think three people could have split these and still been full. But they were SO GOOD. The pancakes were topped with vanilla custard, crystalized sugar, and berries.
The next meal that was ordered was the smoked salmon eggs benedict and it was served on an everything waffle. Different, but well received.
The final dish was the fried bologna sandwich with a side of fried potatoes (SO GOOD).
The unanimous decision was that we all enjoyed our dished but could have easily split two meals and had plenty of food each.
I will 100% be back but next time I’ll be trying it their dinner menu.
Keep on brunchin’,
