Alright, well I don't want to waste my time on this review. I am just not a fan of Cafe Muse. I used to go here when I was new to Royal Oak because they have tons of reviews and everyone says they are good. I think they do have good food and it photographs well. Meaning that whoever is putting it together knows how to plate it. Yes, Oprah Winfrey said the grilled cheese was amazeballs. Cool.
I just don't think it lives up to the hype. For some reason (this is my own peev), I just don't like the seating of it. It doesn't feel comfortable to me. I don't mind being crammed into a small restaurant. There are plenty of small restaurants I love such as Monty's Grill. If you've been there you know what I mean... it's smaller than small.
It's hard for me to eat here because they don't have gluten-free options. They used to have a hash. I think it was a special at the time I went, but they don't always have it. They should make it a permanent menu dish. Cafe Muse to me just seems like they are just making it on their old rep alone. We have so many other excellent brunch places in the area. I don't know why one would waste time (they normally have a wait) and money on this place. Go somewhere else if you want a hearty meal like One Eyed Bettys, Maes, Breakfast Club, Beverly Hills Grille... You will pay just the same amount at these places or less and get BETTER food. Take a chance and trust me on this one. :)
Giving you a taste of what I taste. From gourmet to everyday. No pretentious bull - just good food.
