June 16, 2021

Award-winning gastropub chain, Bobcat Bonnie’s, announced its first West Michigan location at Breton Village. The restaurant is planning to open the 5,600 square foot space this Fall at 1968 Breton Road SE in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The Detroit-based gastropub is renowned for its accessible, family-friendly menu and friendly atmosphere. Bobcat Bonnie’s currently has 5 locations throughout the Metro Detroit area and Ohio, including: Corktown, Wyandotte, Ferndale, Ypsilanti, Partridge Creek, and Toledo, OH. Each one has brought its fresh menu selection and quality service to the different area with the common goal of becoming the neighborhood spot.

Bobcat Bonnie’s menu offers a little bit of everything for every kind of appetite. From signature drinks, brunch specials, vegan/vegetarian options, and more – Bobcat Bonnie’s family-friendly menu has a quality selection of dining options at reasonable prices.

Bobcat Bonnie’s was ranked one of the “Top 24 Best Brunches in America” by Thrillist in 2019 and has also been featured on shows like “Food Paradise” and “Cheap Eats”. The team is excited to bring its eclectic aesthetic and unique menu to a new market that they have close ties to. “This is an exciting move for us as open a location in what is, in essence, my hometown,” said Matt Buskard, Owner of Bobcat Bonnie’s. “This opportunity to open at Breton Village is huge for us and we cannot thank CWD and their amazing team for creating this great property, and for allowing us to open here in such a special development.”

Breton Village is home to a combination of local and national brands centered around specialty stores, fashion, food, and fitness. This variety of stores and restaurants has helped establish the area as Grand Rapids’ Fashion District and continues to introduce the community to their new favorite businesses. Breton Village is just one of many retail spaces in Grand Rapids in CWD’s diverse commercial real estate portfolio.

Bobcat Bonnie’s will occupy the former Houlihan’s Space, bringing a new, much-needed dining experience to Breton Village. “Breton Village has always focused on introducing new market-unique brands to the community. Bringing businesses like Bobcat Bonnie’s to the area complements the existing retail experience and will be great for the families in the area,” said Scott Wierda, Managing Partner of CWD Real Estate Investment. “Matt’s passion carries through to his business and menu and I know our local community will love Bobcat Bonnies. We can’t wait to officially welcome Bobcat Bonnie’s to Breton Village.”

“It’s going to be very heartwarming to share Bobcat Bonnie’s with an area that shown me so much love,” adds Buskard. “I cannot thank Scott Wierda for allowing us to join his vision for Breton Village.”

Bobcat Bonnie’s will be located at 1968 Breton Road SE in Breton Village. The gastropub is planning to open in Fall 2021.
