Do This!: Vote for The Chocolate Gallery Cafe for Best Breakfast

Full disclaimer, The Chocolate Gallery Cafe is my Aunt Cathy and Uncle Chuck’s restaurant. But just because I’m related to them doesn’t mean they haven’t been turning out some of the best breakfast and desserts that people have been enjoying for years. And just because you haven’t eaten there {why haven’t you?} or don’t live in Detroit, doesn’t mean you can’t cast a vote and support their family run business from afar. They have been nominated for and won countless local and national awards, which speaks volumes for the love and passion they pour into their family run business. This year, The Chocolate Gallery Cafe has been nominated again for Detroit’s WDIV Best Breakfast award, so read on, drool over the pictures of their food, vote and then tell any friends or family you know in Michigan to stop by for a meal they are sure to enjoy!

The Chocolate Gallery Cafe opened its doors over 16 years ago, but got its start even earlier when a love for chocolate and hours of experiments in a home kitchen resulted in the recipe for their famous award-winning Chocolate Buckingham Torte. So rich it has royalty in its name. The award-winning Chocolate Buckingham Torte is layered to perfection, with a chewy brownie bottom, creamy chocolate mousse center all topped off with crunchy English toffee and whipped cream florets that provide the ideal contrast to its other rich layers. The answer to every chocolate lover’s quest for the perfect dessert, this torte is the jewel of my Aunt Cathy and Uncle Chuck’s boutique cafe.

With many food fans clamoring for their desserts and a catering business taking off, The Chocolate Gallery decided to settle on a home and open a quaint cafe in Warren, Michigan, where their talents could be showcased and enjoyed on a regular basis — breakfast, lunch or dessert!

And thank goodness, because have you ever had something as delicious as Strawberry Stuffed French Toast? Made from thick cut french bread, stuffed with cream cheese and fresh strawberries, heated to crispy perfection and topped off with a warm homemade strawberry puree — 100% deliciousness!

Not extravagant enough for you? Like the line between breakfast and dessert to be crossed? Not surprising that The Chocolate Gallery Cafe does too! And so was born The Very Berry Stuffed French Toast, topped with a drizzle of premium chocolate and homemade whipped cream.

More of a traditionalist? How about the Fresh Blueberry Pancakes to satisfy your morning sweet tooth? Light and fluffy, they are the perfect breakfast bed for those sweet Michigan blueberries to burst with warmth on.

A Menu Must: And for those of us that are just plain ‘ole egg lovers, The Eggs Benedict is out of this world. Topped with homemade hollandaise sauce and served with a side of cafe potatoes, this savory selection wins my vote.

  1. great article and well deserved. I hope a million people view it!

  2. Cathy and Chuck make the most delicious carrot cake too! Great article that really captures the wonderful items from the kitchen. If you haven’t tried the Chocolate Gallery Cafe, you must!

    We live only two miles from this wonderful place. The food is always great and the service the best in the country. They know our kids names, what they are interested in, what sports they play as well as what our favorite meals are (down to what kind of toast we like).

    You do not find a place like this anymore. It is always a treat going there and feels like family. Sort of like a “Cheers” that serves breakfast.
