When I hopped onto Facebook today and went to the Lansing Foodies group to see what sounded good for dinner, I did not think that I'd be met by such sad news.

Sadly, Adrian faced a battle with cancer last summer. He's since come out the other side a survivor. However, after struggles he faced, he came to the difficult decision to close the Downtown East Lansing location. Here's what he had to say in his post;

I'm so sad to see this place close. East Lansing and students are definitely losing an awesome late-night eatery.

GoodFellas Bagel Deli

We first learned that the East Lansing location would soon open in May of 2022. And it was October 2022 when the doors first opened. Now, just over a year later, we have to say goodbye.

Thankfully for Adrian, and our stomachs, the GoodFellas location inside the Capital City Market in Downtown Lansing will remain open and slinging out the delicious breakfast bagels and sandwiches.

Lansing and East Lansing Restaurant Closures

GoodFellas in East Lansing is joining other restaurants from the area in this recent rash of closures.

When it comes to awesome places to get breakfast, the Lansing area has no shortage. Look through the gallery below and think about what kinds of breakfast plans you want to make for this weekend.

Best Breakfast Burritos in the Lansing Area

I feel that not only is breakfast "the most important meal of the day", it's also the best meal of the day. That's why there's such thing as brinner (breakfast for dinner) and diners/restaurants that offer breakfast items 24/7. The epitome of delicious and portable breakfast options is a breakfast burrito. If you want a hearty breakfast that's filling and perfect for on-the-go eating, a breakfast burrito is the way to go. We've put together a stuffed list, filled with the best breakfast burritos in the Lansing area, and here's what we've come up with. Check out the mouth-watering gallery below.
