I was in Grand Rapids last month and got to experience several restaurants and breweries. I wish I'd known there's an Omelette Shoppe there! I love the one in Traverse City and I'd have gone to the one in GR when I was there. I love HopCat, too! I didn't eat there, though; just drank beer. I need to go back for the Crack Fries, though!

I can't wait to try those crack fries!!

Okay, wow! I grew up in Grand Rapids, but left the state for college in 1995. I'm always amazed when I come back and see how the town has grown (in a good way). I'm definitely checking out these venues the next time we're in town. I still say for a good wet burrito you can't beat the Beltline Bar!

The crack fries were certainly worth the try!

Julie-The Beltline Bar is part of the same group that also has Sundance, Forest Hills and the Omelette Shop...we've got a "Passport" we've been trying to fill up enough so we can turn it in for a gift card before the end of the year, so we may try the Beltline soon. I suspect we'll be out there around Christmas time to see Tim's family again :)
