Hardly a surprising tie here. At Ypsi's Beezy's, their sign promises simple, honest food and that's just what you'll get, with a side helping of the friendliest staff you could meet. They pour on the quality, serving excellent breakfasts, and there can be lines on a Sunday morning. Café Zola, with its brick walls, large picture windows and, in season, sizable outdoor patio, is one of the more comfortable restaurants in Ann Arbor — especially around brunching time.
