Popular Brunch Restaurant Adds Second Location

IMG 4384

ROCHESTER HILLS, MI--  Popular brunch restaurant, The Jagged Fork, recently opened its second location at The Village of Rochester Hills.

Wildly popular in Grosse Pointe Farm-- its original location-- the family-owned business selected The Village for its new locale based on the requests of customers who wanted them closer.

“The quality of our food, our menu offerings, our work ethic, have put us in demand,” said co-owner Christina Adamopoulos.

The quality includes all-natural chicken, prime burger and from-scratch sauces, dressings and salsas. Chips and tamales are also made in house and the homemade corn beef hash is already a local favorite.

The Jagged Fork menu includes sweet and savory breakfast options, like pancakes, French toast and omelets, along with burgers, sandwiches and salads. Skillets and specialty fries round out the offerings.

Another favored pick, according to Christina, is the Rochester Hills Crepe with spinach, ham, mushrooms, onion, tomato, sour cream, swiss and cheddar cheeses and an over-easy egg.

On the sweet side, the U.G.3 Sampler lets diners have the best of all pancake offerings with one Red Velvet, one Oreo and one Chunky Monkey-- made with caramel, white chocolate chips and bananas.

There is a kids menu for diners 12 and under.

Opening on April 24, it took four months to remodel the former 3,000 square foot Subway and Mezza Grill location. The bright, open space, done in neutrals with natural wood and stone walls, seats 100. The restaurant is on schedule to have their liquor license by summer’s end.

“It’s a place where the community can come together to eat,” said co-owner Stavros Adamopoulos.IMG 4392

The Jagged Fork has already had a warm reception from Rochester residents.

“Everyone has been very welcoming,” Stavros said. “They tell us they’ve been waiting.”


The Jagged Fork is located at 188 N. Adams Rd. in Rochester Hills. They are open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

LiaCome to the Village every Thursday night this summer to get dinner at one of our restaurants and then head to Festival Park's gazebo for Music in the Park.  Starting June 22nd at our Shelton Stage from 6:30-8:30pm we will be providing free music to our community, with a wide range of styles to satisfy all our guests.  Be sure to bring blankets and lawn chairs for two hours of listening pleasure. A chance to sit back, relax, and get one more day closer to TGIF!

The Food Trucks Are Coming!

 20170207 1350 VORH food truck logo

The Food Trucks Are Coming! And this year there will be more nights, more options to eat and less options to be overwhelmed. They will be parking EVERY Monday on the west side of Whole Foods Market. They will be there each Monday from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm starting June 19th and their last night will be on August 28th. You won't have to plan Monday night dinner all summer! How awesome is that? 

Here is the most exciting part! YOU voted the food trucks you wanted and the non-profits you wanted too!

What’s so great about food trucks, you may ask? I’m so glad you asked!

Here’s my Top Five Reasons Food Trucks Rock:

5. Outside > Inside: If you’re burned out on grilling, it’s a great option that gets you out of the hot kitchen and your family outside. Bring a blanket, have a picnic, make a fun night of it!

4. Variety is the Spice of Life: (along with Food Trucks) Family can’t decide on what to have for dinner? That’s the beauty of the food trucks. Each week a different one or two will be onsite. You don't have to make the decision. 

3. The Joy of Discovery A wasabi dog? Why not? Unlike a restaurant with a 10-page menu, food trucks typically specialize on one specific thing. Enjoy that mastery and try something new! If someone has taken the time and effort to devote their food truck to hot dogs, like The Mean Weenie, you know that’s going to be one darn good dog.

2. Fast...It’s a scientific fact: although your clock says Monday has 24 hours like any other day, it’s the longest and slowest of the week! You’ve waited an eternity for it to be dinnertime, who wants to wait any longer to eat? Food truck = fast. Fast is good.

1. Doing Good One Meal at a Time These food trucks aren't just feeding our community, they are caring for it too. Each one of the trucks will donate to a specific non-profit and that’s something we can all feel good about.
