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.

It is that time again! Ghosts, goblins, prinesses and fun at the Village…but always with a community purpose.

October 29th from 5-7pm the Village will host their annual Halloween at the Village. This is a family event that helps feed those less fortunate in our immediate area. It is all about “neighbors helping neighbors” as we raise money and gather food for our local families in need.

Live Spring Fashions

 

April 24, 2015 the Village of Rochester Hills will literally come to life. It is the season that Michiganders are anxiously waiting to get outside. Longing for the days of fresh air and warmth. The evenings of longer daylight and mild temperatures are within a fingers-tip reach away…and the Village wants to celebrate.

Join the many stores and models to bring spring fashions alive. Carefully chosen, local talent will be modeling the latest in fashion trends….in-stores, outside stores and even where you least expect to see a model. Two lucky entries will be chosen to get a full photo shoot and headshot provided by ThreeSonsPhotography and Real Style will be onsite scouting for new talent!Micah

This event is free for the entire metro-Detroit area. It’s a celebration of fashion, fresh air and friendships. Plan to spend your evening strolling Village Main with friends and family. Look for the models throughout. Grab a bite to eat and even get some fun tastes inside the stores. Enjoy the beautiful ambiance and fresh pansies. Sit on a bench and just breath. Listen to some live music or even have a cartoon drawn of you and a friend.

The event will start at 6:00pm and commence at 8pm, but you are welcome to come early or stay late!

Get your tails to the Village on March 28th!

March 28th 10:30-1:30pm is a day you won't want to miss with the kids. Why? The Easter Bunny is arriving at the Village on a Rochester Hills Fire Truck!

We are asking for a small donation of $5 per child or $10 per family that will go directly to the Rainbow Connection. And we have more fun planned for the donation!
