Job Details

Social Misfits GR - GRAND RAPIDS, MI


Our Misfit Joints are based on a simple premise: we exist to create a hospitality experience like no other. A warm, welcoming refuge for all. We respect and celebrate the diverse, alternative, and authentic.

Social Misfits is a delicious adventure and a house of worship to the ultimate comfort food: Waffles. With an iconic logo of one of history’s most iconic misfits, you’d better believe this isn’t your ordinary cafe. In addition to a cozy, lounge-like atmosphere evoking romanticism, character and dark allure of the iconic speakeasy, Social Misfits serves deliciously creative offerings including both savory and sweet scratch-made waffles from farm-fresh local ingredients, locally sourced Michigan maple syrups with unique flavor infusions, craft cocktails, and farmer direct, locally roasted, hand crafted coffee from Ferris Coffee Roasting Company. Social Misfits is equally suited for an unordinary lunch meeting, an extraordinary dinner date, or a boozy brunch with friends old and new.
