Lil Chef in Brighton, Mi. gone. Tue, 06/10/08 4:28 PM (permalink)
Driving around on business today, and found one of my favorite breakfast places gone. The "Lil Chef" on Grand River in Brighton Mi. is no more. I even turned around to look twice to be sure. The building is completely gone, and a new one is being built in its place. I don't know what it will be, but I'm guessing chain place of some sort.

This was a Saturday morning ritual 4 or 5 times a year for my friends to meet here on the way to events at the Rock financial Palace, and will be sorely missed. It was nothing fancy, but a large tasty breakfast at a reasonable price, with a good down home crowd. If anyone has further info about them possibly moving or reopening, I would love to hear it.

      Having spent a few summers in Brighton as a kid (Grandparents lived there) I was trying to recall where it was located?? I have three family members living on Grand River on the lake on the Howell side of town. Are they close??

      Thanks for the update on the 'Move'!

        Yes, Lil Chef is closed. The site is going to be used to house an Olga's and a Starbuck's.
        The good news is that they're going to reopen. It won't be a 24 hour place as far as I know. It is scheduled to reopen on the 22 of September.

        shows you the new site, it will be in the blue-roofed building - Brookside Mall.
