Great experience on a Saturday morning for Brunch.  I was a party of one this time and they were welcoming and gracious in spite of being quite busy and bustling.  I was given three different seating options as a single diner which was very nice.  I elected a small table and was seated in a smaller dining area with different sized tables.  The decor and ambiance is welcoming and festive.  The staff are very attentive and my waitress was able to explain the menu and make recommendations.   My drink came promptly and my order was taken right away as well.  The manager is involved in the activities including bringing food to some tables, checking on diners and generally paying attention in a personal and direct way which is refreshing.  The staff seem happy and focused which also helps create a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere.   I really enjoyed my tomatillo black bean & roasted corn burrito and would definitely recommend it for a hearty but still relatively lower fat breakfast option. I saw quite a few other people enjoying it as well so it must be a local favorite.  Their prices are great for the quality and upscale surroundings. All in all they earned their five star review.

I took my daughter for a Bday Brunch at Uptown and I am glad we finally got around to trying the restaurant.Our server Jessica V or Z O cannot recall was very good. Truly great service...especially for brunch. She was super efficient, sensed we were on a slower pace than the rest of her customers and not pushy or rushing to turn the station. Thank you also for the truffle and Happy birthday dessert...that was very thoughtful.Our food was very good, Uptown does a plated brunch with 6-7 festured items and their whole breakfast menu available. If you need to eat a bit lighter Uptown has quite a few healthy options.We both chose from the brunch menu..I had the heuvos rancheros and my daughter had Carnitas Benedict.My HR was good..served with green and chipotle red chilli sauces. The beans were creamy smooth, alongside there was a fresh salsa cruda and guacamole. The tomatoes in the salsa were actually halfway ripe which was a nice change from the tasteless waterbags most fresh tomatoes are this time of the year. Not dead ripe summer tomato quality but pretty good. My eggs were.poached perfectly and there was the right amount.of cheese. I like cheese but some places overdo it. My guacamole was over processed and a little bland. The chorizo was good quality and had been precooked to remove some extra fat , then grilled crispy...really great idea.Overall the HR were extremely good though.My daughters Carnitas benedict was served with real hollandaise spike with fresh jalepeno, very tasty, smooth and nice ribbon consistency. The carnitas were soft, maybe a touch underseasoned, but falling apart tender and not greasy at all. She recieved the same salsa cruda as a garnish. It was served with some red skin potato cottage fries. I tried a bite of the carnitas with some hollandaise and they were great.The brunch was a good value..2 coffees and 2 very nice entrees were 30 plus tip- nothing to complain about there.We will definitely return- I am already curious to see what their regular menu holds in store.Thank you jessica for the great service and thank you Uptown kitchen for some noteworthy food.

I'm giving it five stars for atmosphere food and clientele.The place is a step up from pancake houses and your metro diner types. Can't wait bring back my wife. Weekends are really busy, you'll probably need reservations. More...

Popped into Uptown Kitchen the other day for the first time. It was great! The food was just awesome. Their burgers are seasoned perfectly, though my uptown fries did come out cold - not sure if that was intentional. No big deal, they're just potatoes and everything else was great. However our waitress was not quite there - definitely in a rush - and she forgot to bring a few things to the table. Understandable, it was pretty busy. When I was ordering though, she cut me off to hurry it along every time I opened my mouth. If not for these things I'd give Uptown 5 stars! Can't wait to go back and try more things on the menu though, hopefully at a less busy time. More...

The breakfast burrito and omelette are my favorites. Overall though, a more fancy place (compared to day pancake house) but worth it if you're into more than just pancakes and sausage.

Good was good, loved the vegan options. I was eyeing a chicken sandwich on the menu, but wanted to sub the chicken for extra avacado. The waitress realized the avacado that came on the sandwich was just a spread so she made the decision to sub for slices which was so kind!! The manager came around to each table and asked us how everything was. My only complaint is that the service was pretty slow. I had a phone call I had to take and the manager noticed us trying to find the check and rang us up. A little disappointed in the speed but everything else was good More...

Wow, if you're in South Bend, Indiana go here. There's a wait. Because the locals know it's good. And they packed the place. And they're right. It's really good. They have these little red skin potatoes that they cut up and cook with a little bit of seasoning and they taste fantastic they're tender and delicious to make you want to eat them all up. I also got a hamburger. Quarter Pounder cooked my way my favorite toppings. Outside of a backyard grilled burger that is a really delicious Burger. My dad had scrambled eggs sausage toast and the little potatoes. The sausages were twice as plump as any sausage I've ever seen. Dead loved the seasoning and said they were great. And he ate everything on the plate. Both he and I left nothing on our plates that's how good it was. The service was wonderful, the food was great, it's worth going and it's worth the wait. More...

Sunday morning brunch and we were seated promptly at 9:30.  (The line started forming with wait times before we were finished. )  It was a beautiful fall day, so we dined outside on the patio.  The staff was friendly and accommodating since our group of five arrived in 2 groups.  Fortunately, both parties arrived within minutes of each other and we avoided any long delays.There is a brunch menu, but it doesn't list all the egg options, so if you are leaning towards those, check the back page of the large menu.My wife and SIL opted for the corned beef hash since they had it when they were kids.  However, the beef wasn't chopped like they expected from a hash.  Instead, the beef was in small strips.  The flavor was good, it just was the restaurant's take on how to make it.  The hash comes with a bread type (rye toast for my wife) and 2 eggs (over easy) served over rosemary potatoes.  My wife isn't a fan of rosemary seasoning, so she left those.  Otherwise, she enjoyed her meal.I went with one of their Eggs Benedict options (ham) which is served on an open faced English Muffin and rosemary potatoes on the side.  I found the potatoes to be good (not too much rosemary) and the eggs to be cooked properly.  Pretty standard flavor, not much to say if you've had good EB before.The coffee was served ready to drink and I found the flavor to be a nice medium to light blend that still had flavor without much bitterness.  I gladly accepted a refill about mid meal.Everyone seemed to enjoy their food and setting.  If I stay in the same hotel next time in the area, I will gladly forego the complementary offerings of the hotel and grab a hearty hot meal here.Review #3081 More...

While on vacation between Michigan and Indiana I visited several breakfast places and this was by FAR my favorite. The breakfast was perfectly cooked, came out in a reasonable time despite the fact that they were busy, and tasted excellent. I’m not a mimosa drinker, but I sampled my sisters and it was the best mimosa I have ever tasted. I tried both of my kid’s foods as well and everything was just incredible. This a must stop for me next time I’m in town. More...

Really good brunch place near South Bend Indiana. The staff is friendly, the ambiance is great, place was not too loud. They have a gorgeous blow glass chandelier in their seating area. I ordered their hot chocolate, it was absolutely delicious! For food, I ordered the vegetarian quiche, the crust was well cooked and the quiche was very light and tasty. I recommend this place for brunch! More...

Uptown Kitchen has been an amazing breakfast, brunch, lunch spot for my family for many years now. Probably my mom's favorite place as she knows all the waitresses by name. I typically will always order brunch here and have ordered many things off the menu. My personal go-to is the breakfast burrito. If you're a bloody Mary drinker, you ABSOLUTELY need to try one here!

My son and I are in from out of town;  he is picky and I am a foodie.  Our meals were absolutely fantastic.  Farm to table fresh, excellent flavor combinations, reasonable prices.  The homemade potato salad was out of this world, and the fresh herbs and homemade noodles made the chicken noodle soup a treat.   The service was fantastic....I ordered an IPA and my waitress informed me that there wasn't one on tap....she offered to get me beer list and instead the bartender came out with a sampler of three different on tap options he thought I might like.  Every meal I saw come out looked divine and everyone around us was raving about how good it was.  It was a real treat.....highly recommend it to anyone.  Only bummer was they weren't open for dinner or we would have gone back and eaten there twice in the same day.  Don't miss this one.
