Today I wanted to share my experience at an Ypsilanti restaurant that I actually discovered on Instagram, called Blue Wolf Grill. After seeing so many enticing food pictures and reading rave reviews, I finally made it out to Blue Wolf Grill on Washtenaw Ave for brunch this past Sunday morning.
It seems Blue Wolf Grill’s defining feature, at least from the exterior, is that they are a “former Taco Bell,” but they’ve made the space their own inside.
Blue Wolf Grill sources many of their ingredients from local Michigan retailers and farmers, including Dearborn brand sausage from Detroit, and featuring organic eggs from cage-free vegetarian fed hens in their omelets.
I’m an omelet girl so I ordered the Hearty Omelet for breakfast – a nicely-sized three egg omelet filled with sausage, bacon, onion, green pepper, and cheddar cheese, with a side of homemade hash brown. The omelet was really good and I enjoyed the abundance of bacon (obviously). Even better was the toast! According to their website, BWG’s loaves of rye bread come from Madison Heights, Michigan. It is some amazing bread!
I wanted a more colorful picture, so here is my plate after diggin’ into the omelet, adding ketchup to my hash browns, and slathering butter and grape jelly atop my toast. This is how a brunch plate should look.
Also worthy of rave is BWG’s COFFEE! Peeps know how to brew a perfect pot of coffee, let me tell you. Clearly they are brewing some quality java here – the coffee was amazing! (Another Michigan-sourced item, per their website.)
I loved visiting and supporting this local business and I highly recommend you do the same if you’ve the opportunity! This small business is doing so many things correctly, and will definitely be seeing more of me in the future.
