My friend and I had a great experience ordering takeout from Peaches Cafe! The owner is the sweetest man who makes fantastic, fresh food. We highly recommend this place and suggest that you order your takeout directly from Peaches (as opposed as through Grub Hub, etc.) as the conversation with the owner is half the joy of going. We had the tacos and burger and we were hooked!

Owner is extremely rude and disrespectful! I would not recommend this place. the place is completely dirty and doesn't seem like anything gets clean.

The most fresh and delicious food in all of Grand Rapids. Hossein, the owner, is so caring and puts so much love and care into preparing his food. I completely recommend Peaches Cafe!

I’ve never been here, but I want to go :)

I would love to be able to try Peaches Cafe, as I've seen rave reviews everywhere, but when I went today around 1 pm, they were closed?! Hoping it's a fluke & I'll be able to try them out, but if the hours have changed, the hours online & ON THE DOOR need to be changed, too. Then again, what cafe isn't open during lunch? If they closed down, a sign on the door or something would be nice, too. There's no trace of what happened anywhere. The OPEN sign is off, the lights inside are off, even though the hours for Fridays are listed as 11 am - 9 pm.

I had a wonderful experience at Peaches Cafe. Great food & great location!

Great experience! The food is made so fresh and the man is so kind. It takes a little bit of time because everything is made from scratch but it’s worth the wait!

I have tried to called this establishment multiple times in different days when it states that they are open and they have literally never answered their phone once. Confused by this and have been trying to place carry out orders but no one has ever ever picked up their phone. Tried to locate a different phone number for them and keep getting the same number and it is never answered?

The tacos I had were amazing!

Okay so this place seems a bit sketchy but let me tell you the food is really good and cheap! The man I assume is the owner appears to run the shop by himself is very kind and even gave us free water bottles! I got the tacos and they were great!

I called in an order for 7 entrees at 5. Told it would be done in an hour. Got a call at 6 saying it would be another 45 minutes. It is 7:10 and no food is in sight. I hope the food is at least warm. Not betting on it

So yummy and such friendly service!

Best veggie burger I have ever eaten...so flavorful. The chicken salad was delicious and well seasoned also. Unbeatable value. Order by phone ahead of time as everything is made from scratch . Will be back !

I cannot say enough about this cute little place! Best veggie burger I have EVER had made by the absolute sweetest human!!! Visited with my husband and young daughter, who he spoiled with little treats and told us, “Children have a special place here. They deserve all the kindness in the world.” Felt like having dinner with extended family. Thank you for a great experience and amazing food! We will definitely be returning! �

The kindest and sweetest restaurant owner I have ever met. Working by himself, he catered to my wife, daughter and I, and made absolutely delicious food. The veggie burger is the best we have ever tried. Food is cheap and delectable, and we will be going back as soon as possible to try more dishes. Please pay him a visit sooner than later.

I had the veggies tacos and they are beautifully crafted-- also, the spices/veggie ratio is exquisite! I had a wonderful experience & the owner is so genuine & knowledgeable.

Tacos. These fusion tacos are fantastic. Good texture, flavor and they are filling. Don't let the small dining room fool you, the food is prepared with care and again, is tasty. It does take a short while to get your food (at least it did on the day we were here,) but good things take time to prepare. (It means your food was fresh made and not in a bin waiting.)

If you care about quality and you want to treat your taste buds like the good buds they are, try a meal at Peaches. Inspired to offer a unique eating experience, the owner crafts the food with joy and humble gratitude at the opportunity to feed you.

The owner is great, polite, inviting, and appreciates his Customers. The burger was very tasty, unique flavor to it. I'll definitely be back!

The owner runs this cafe all by himself, so be patient and prepared to wait a little on busy days. But it's absolutely worth the wait! I've had many of the vegetarian and vegan options, and they're all excellent. But my most favorite, by far, is the veggie burger. I don't know how they get their veggie burger so flavorful and moist, but it's incredible! To me, it's the best darn veggie burger in town! This cafe offers amazing food if you're in the mood for American, Middle Eastern, and some variations of Mexican food, and includes meat, but is also very accommodating to vegans and vegetarians. I might have just found my favorite little spot in this town.

Ridiculously good Iranian/Middle Eastern food at low prices! Hussein made off-menu items upon request! He often is alone, so the food prep takes some time. Go when you're willing to relax and not in a hurry (we were there 3 hours, but it didn't feel that way). It's definitely NOT fast food, but it is INCREDIBLY GOOD! If you're looking for Middle Eastern cuisine that's delicious, go here. He offers traditional, vegetarian and vegan dishes and pulls them off exceptionally well. Hussein is very pleasant and a kind man.

Amazing customer service! Vegan, vegetarian and some gluten free items. Food was fantastic and left overs as well. We loved his use of fresh ingredients. Highly recommend the falafel and Turkish Kabob bowl (he did it without a wrap for me and it was delicious! ) "Best birthday dinner I can remember" said my husband. Kids loved it too and can't wait to go back. Thanks for a great meal Hossein!

I was really disappointed in this place. I ordered tacos and a chicken salad through seamless. It took around an hour and a half for the food to get to me. I feel that the description of the food was very misleading. The salad and the tacos we're basically the same dish. The salad didn't even have any sort of greens in it. Beyond that, both dishes were spiced heavily making them unpleasant to eat as all you could taste was spice. All the food ended up in the trash and I was left searching my cupboards and regretting my choice of eating here.

I thought we'd try the place out. 'Let's take a risk,' I said. My wife wanted to leave before we walked in. 'No no, lets give them a chance,' I said. 57 minutes later our food was finally served. We were feeling pretty cranky about the wait, but all crankiness flew out the window when we began eating the tacos, which were fabulous! Our verdict: we'll be back but will place our order 60 minutes in advance.

Made to order healthy options and very good prices. My Turkish kebab wrap was very taste and a huge portion.

Likely my worst restaurant experience ever. First, I ordered take-out from the YELP app. It said food would be ready in 30 minutes. I walked into the completely empty restaurant on time to pick up my order, and was acknowledged by the owner saying "Why did you order on the app? Why didn't you pick up the phone and order? I pay commission for orders on the app!" Then he saw a coupon in my hand, and further chastised me saying "you have a coupon. Now I won't make any money". I offered to leave, but he said, "No, wait for your food" After waiting and watching him for 20 minutes, it was evident he had not started my order...and let's just say he moves at a snail's pace. During that 20 minute wait, I sat at the sticky table and noticed the complete disorganization around me. The restaurant had one small room air conditioner, and was uncomfortably warm. I decided to leave. Another 15 minutes later (over an hour after my initial order) I received a phone message my order was ready. So glad I chose to eat left-overs at home versus anything that came from that disgruntled owner and his lousy restaurant.

We stopped into Peaches during an Eastown event and got the chicken tacos. Tacos were fine, lots of spice but we ate with hesitation because the place was filthy. They didn't use the front prep area at all and after ordering went to the back room and we immediately heard microwaves. The entire inside is disheveled and sticky.

I LOVE this place!! The owner is absolutely adorable and is obviously dedicated to making each dish perfectly. I had the chicken tacos and they were so delicious I can't recommend them highly enough. My friend and I were the only two in the place which was very surprising because the food is outstanding. Perfect spot for lunch in east town!

I would give this place five stars if it wasn't for the service. While the owner is very kind and friendly, he certainly takes his sweet a$$ time with each order. Though, when the food does arrive, it's apparent that he puts a great deal of passion into his dishes. There's no doubt the cook here ensures that every last bite is as delicious as the first!

This is one of the best lunches I have had in Grand Rapids! The Turkish taco was so good that after I got done I ordered more to go to share with my family for dinner!!! What an amazing place!! The man who owns it was OUTSTANDING!!! He is the chef and server. He literally cuts everything by hand after you order so the food is as fresh as possible. We had tea that he made a special blend and AGAIN, AMAZING!!!! This is not a place to go to when you want to hurry through lunch, you will want to have extra time to enjoy every bite of your meal. Again OUTSTANDING!! I would give it 10 stars if I could!! I can't wait to go back!

Stopped in with friends for lunch. Only people there with the exception of the owner. Service was slow and deliberate. Food was OK and reasonable.

Peaches is a hidden gem that more people need to be aware of. You get healthy and affordable options with each order, not the mention the owner is the sweetest man! Grab a friend, check it out & order the chick tacos! Enjoy!

My grandma and I arrived around noon. We were the only people in the restaurant (what a shame!) and chose to eat at one of the 2 outdoor tables. We each ordered 3 tacos, one of each kind. While we were waiting, the owner who appeared to be the only one working at this time, brought us homemade hummus on the house. It was delicious! Probably the best hummus I've had. It was very flavorful, fresh-tasting, and definitely not the kind you buy in the store. It took awhile to get our tacos, but they were fresh made and worth the wait. I was a little disappointed about the number of onions on the tacos, as have a sensitivity to them, but once I picked them off, the tacos were excellent. I forgot to take a photo, you'll just have to come by and see for yourself! I strongly recommend coming here, but not if you are in a hurry

Hole in the wall yet clean, casual yet deliciously healthy food! What more can you ask for

Jeff V.

Incredible food, personality, and service. The healthy options are perfect and flavorful. There is a wait but it's only because they are making everything fresh. Highly recommended!

Looking for healthy food deliciously prepared? This is the place. You order at the counter, pick a beverage from the numerous of choices and wait as they prepare your meal from scratch. Delicious takes time, but good things come to those who wait.The Turkish Kabob (Ground sirlion comined with pureed onion, cilantro, cumin, cinnamon, topped with tomato, onion and option of parsley and cucumber sauce on flatbread) was worth the wait. They also have salads, tacos, burgers, and wraps. Portions were large and the price was right! I'll be back!

Delicious food, and the owner treated us like family! The fact that it was empty when we came in almost scared us away, but so happy we stayed to enjoy the delicious Turkish sandwich!
