I come to Babo often for work. I usually bring 1-2 guests with me. Great food, the best coffee in Detroit, and great service. Sadly the metal chairs are awful! Besides the worst chairs in the world the food, service, and coffee are incredible! Seriously get a cup of the coffee. If they replaced the metal chairs with something less physically painful this place would be a 10/10.

Food was good despite bartender/server smart mouth. Wish there were some more variety in the menu but still good. Parking is hit or miss on the street, used garage that cost $20.

About the restaurant
IN THE HEART OF NORTHVILLE
Our mission is simple: to celebrate the diverse, hustling, resilient city of Detroit and its people by consistently providing amazing food and a stellar experience. Our expansive menu has something for everyone: whether it’s our take on the famous Maurice salad that your grandparents remember from Hudson’s, a heaping stack of Cinnabun pancakes for the dessert-for-breakfast person in your life, a Voodoo benedict for those who love an adventurous take on an old classic, or Mickey Mouse pancakes for the little ones, we’ve got you covered.

Founded in 2011, born in the heart of Detroit just before the city’s much-publicized revival began. Located on Woodward Avenue between Grand River & State St, our name is a nod to the iconic Hudson’s department store, which was located directly across the street on Woodward Avenue, and Detroit’s heyday as a bustling, cosmopolitan city. We have been blessed ever since to watch the city progress & grow around us.
