Who Are We

We are a cozy, sit-down diner focusing on breakfast – super-solid classics and surprising innovations with some old-school favorites that you might have forgotten about, brought back to life with interesting twists.  We also do some great boozy drinks any time.

Located in the Grand Army of the Republic Building, Parks & Rec Diner is our homage to the hey-day of the building’s 40 years as a City of Detroit Parks and Recreation Department. Fantastic fare in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.
Get in here!

We proudly source from local farms, make (almost!) everything in house, use the highest quality products available to us, and ensure that your meal is prepared with love every step of the way. We are dedicated to creating a cozy breakfast experience the way we think it should be. Sometimes those high standards cost more to achieve. Know that each of your hard earned pennies goes to creating better wages for our staff and enhancing the local food chain. In turn, we promise to provide you a quality meal nurtured all the way from the field to your table.
