Reflect Bistro’s Filet Mignon & Eggs

By Lynda Wheatley | Oct. 10, 2020

The combination of limited-capacity seating and chillier mornings has made going out for Sunday breakfast an odyssey Up North. Our solution: Seek out the secret spots, like Reflect Bistro, hidden inside Cambria Hotel and Suites, just east of downtown Traverse City.

With well-spaced tables in its petite dining room, vast lobby, and (weather permitting) sheltered patio, the wait is short, and the food is fab. Our sweet tooth craved the Cambria Cronut — a croissant filled with sweet maple and pecan ricotta and dredged in pancake batter, served with potatoes, fresh fruit, and crème — but we stuck to savory: a 6-ounce filet so tender we cut it with our butter knife, plus eggs, a super fresh tomato-basil salad, and a side of toast, all served with a side of fresh fruit and crème. So good, we’re going back; that Cronut still calls. $21.

Find 'em both at Reflect Bistro inside Cambria Hotel & Suites, 255 Munson Ave., in Traverse City. (231) 778-2000
