About Us

We are in the heart of downtown Detroit at 1241 Woodward Avenue between Grand River Avenue and State Street.

Upon entering our establishment, please see our host to be seated to dine in. If there is a wait to be seated, please feel free to step over to our Hudson Café Coffee bar to enjoy a specialty coffee drink, a brunch cocktail, or, for the busy Detroiter or on-the-move visitor, order your meal to-go.

The Hudson Café opens daily at 8 AM. Our regular business hours are as follows:

Monday - Friday : 8am - 3pm

Saturday - Sunday : 8am - 4pm

Any closures or changes to our hours for holidays or special events will be noted on our social media accounts. Please follow @hudsoncafe on Instagram or like Hudson Café on Facebook from our website home page to stay updated.

Seating, Reservations, Special Events, and Catering

To best accommodate our guests, we do not accept reservations for parties of any size during peak volume hours, which include Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, and between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM on some weekdays. We accept reservations for parties of 8 or more Monday through Friday on a limited basis. Please email chelsi@hudson-cafe.com for further details.

Guests can typically expect to wait for a table during peak volume hours, which gives the perfect opportunity to explore the surrounding downtown Detroit area or do some shopping at any of our retail neighbors. Due to the fluctuating nature of wait time estimates, wait times are typically not given over the phone. Please see our front desk to be added to the waiting list.

While we typically cannot accommodate special events during regular service hours, we are available for buy-out or afterhours events taken on a case-by-case basis. Please email tom@hudson-cafe.com for further details. We also offer on-site catering packages for events. Please email cortney@hudson-cafe.com to receive the catering menu and for further details.
