The Trailhead Cafe in Grand Rapids is destined to be one of West Michigan’s favorite new restaurants. The cafe is locally owned and operated by the Smith family of Ada, who recruited local chef Dan Teliczan to create a custom menu. The mouth watering result is a breakfast and lunch menu using the finest gourmet ingredients, many of which are locally grown and produced. You’ll find hamburgers with Piedmontese beef seasoned with a secret special blend, gluten free hamburger buns on request, homemade coffee cake using Mrs. Smith’s secret family recipe, Boar’s Head meats and cheeses, breads from the Nantucket Bakery in Grand Rapids and produce from Ingraberg Farm in Rockford. Salads are topped with our homemade dressings, and coffees were specially selected for their gourmet flavor.
Chef Dan is a culinary graduate of the Secchia Institute and has over a decade of experience as a chef for some of the areas’ most exclusive upscale dining venues. He used this knowledge of fine dining and applied it to a low key cafe environment. The result is amazingly delicious food in a relaxed, casual atmosphere.
Stop in and see us, we’re located next to the Grand Rapids Bicycle Company’s new location next to Bill and Paul’s Sporthaus on East Paris Avenue.
