Wealthy Street stretches across many neighborhoods, but we spent the majority of the time in Baxter/Eastown. It’s a super walkable area and there are tons of restaurants and shops to check out along the way. Our time on Wealthy Street was mainly filled with eating, which is what I am going to talk about in this post! When we first got to Grand Rapids, we stopped at The Sparrows (first photo below) for an afternoon pick-me-up (since I was asleep in the car-ride from Lansing to Grand Rapids). The Sparrows had all the good vibes. Chase ended up getting a caramel and white chocolate latte, I went with a coconut bubble tea, and we shared a blueberry pastry. All were very tasty. I wish more coffee shops carried bubble tea! We checked into our AirBnB after fueling up at The Sparrows.
Saturday night we went to Donkey Taqueria (second photo from the bottom) on Wealthy Street for dinner. We shared queso dip, a quesadilla, and a tostada. We each got a margarita – I had a white peach margarita and Chase had a mango. Yum. It was all so good. I think Mexican food might be my favorite and a margarita might be my favorite drink. The next morning we went to The Winchester (third photo from the bottom) for Sunday brunch. We shared donut holes with raspberry sauce and I got the pesto polenta. A lot of places we wanted to try for dinner on Sunday were closed, so we just went back to The Winchester for dinner. We shared an amazing salad and I got a burger. The next morning we went to Wolfgang’s (not pictured in this post) for breakfast before we left Grand Rapids to head to Ann Arbor. Chase had read a lot of reviews that they had the best breakfast in Grand Rapids and the wait on a Monday morning also showed that it was a favorite spot for many. It was diner-style restaurant that offered plenty of options for breakfast. I had a standard breakfast with bacon, eggs, and pancakes. We had tons of other places on our list that we didn’t get a chance to try in Grand Rapids. I would recommend checking out The Sparrows, Donkey Taqueria, The Winchester, and Wolfgang’s! Hopefully I’ll get back into doing Foodie Friday posts soon – I did take pictures of some of these meals, but not all of them.
Have a great Thursday!
