It would be a stretch to consider this post a formal “Restaurant Review.” Let’s consider it more of a pop-in post. I think that’s more in-line with what we’ve got going on here anyways.
Last weekend the huz and I headed to Ypsilanti for brunch at Beezy’s. Located on N. Washington Street in downtown Ypsi, Beezy’s aims to deliver “Simple, honest food,” per their website. And they do! Their menu features a delightful selection of homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, and more.
On the particular day we visited, I was in a salad mood. Many times when I visit restaurants for the first time, I like to order their namesake dishes. You know, the dish that include the restaurant name in it. In this case, Beezy’s offers a salad called the “Beezy’s Salad.” Sold.
This hugh jass salad a unique and flavorful pesto ranch dressing that I loved, a large bed of fresh mixed greens, carrots, sliced radish, croutons, chopped bacon, muenster cheese, avocado, cherry tomato, red onion, chicken breast slices, and egg salad. Um yeah! All sorts of goodness!
This giant delicious, nutritious salad was absolutely a steal at under $7. I’m not even sure I could make this salad at home for that price. I really appreciate a restaurant that makes a legitimate, filling, meal-sized salad, and Beezy’s delivered.
The huz went with more traditional, indulgent brunch fare with the Gravy Plate, a platter of sausage gravy-smothered biscuits, scrambled eggs, home fries, and sausage links. He was a fan! I stole a bite of the biscuits and gravy and loved it.
My one and only complaint, and even complaint seems like too strong a word, but in any case, my only con was that on the Sunday morning that I visited, there sure were some stinky people in there. Yeah, I’m sorry, I’m not trying to be rude here, but I don’t know what the deal was. A significant proportion of the clientele stanks. In fairness, I did see a couple people carrying yoga mats, so perhaps these people just came from a yoga class? But my goodness, please shower or at least get some baby wipes up in that business. I don’t even know. With the large Sunday morning brunch crowd, there weren’t many tables to chose from, so unfortunately we were forced to sit right next to some people with some true body odor issues. Phew. So I don’t really know what to do about that. I might have to limit my future visits to less popular times when I can space myself out from people a bit, or else check the nearby yoga schedules and work around them! Maybe it was just an off day!?
Aside from the handful of stinkies, the atmosphere otherwise is cute, quirky, and comfortable. Lots of charm.
In any case, in all other respects, I dig Beezy’s and think you should try it them soon if you haven’t already and have the opportunity. Just choose your table carefully.
