Imagine if you will that you are driving down Grand River road on the out skirts of Grand Ledge around breakfast time. You happen to glance at the sign and can’t understand why the parking is overflowing with cars, work trucks and people. Everyone that you see doing the same thing – eating pizza slices. You may not have realized it but you just discovered one of the best-known secrets of Mid-Michigan pizza, Fabiano’s Grocery and Deli’s breakfast pizza. After talking to people around the area, apparently, we were the only one who didn’t know about their fantastic breakfast pizza, and we just had to try it!
When you walk into Fabiano’s you are instantly caught off guard because the grocery and deli store have everything you’d expect from a convenient store between the highways – chips, snacks, fountain beverages, libations and the like. Then above the counter you see had written from wall to wall the daily menu. Fabiano’s features to go classics like wings and rings, fry baskets and subs but they also have every option of to go pizza slice imaginable, including their breakfast pizza.
The breakfast pizza comes in two options, a house special and a meat lover. We opted for the meat lovers. We found our slice covered in a delicious cheese sauce, adorned with ham, breakfast Sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, and potatoes. The crust was amazing and it all made sense what was so unique about this slice. Fabiano’s makes their dough and sauce fresh daily. For a couple of dollars, and in a couple of minutes we were in and out with a fresh, delicious, and very hearty breakfast meal.
It all made sense now to see the workers, family, office folks and night shifters all gathering in this parking lot – Fabiano’s Grocery and Deli at the corner of Wacousta and Grand River roads has the best slice of breakfast anywhere to be found.

Congratulations to all!
EAST LANSING, Mich. – Jan. 13 – Three more Michigan High School Athletic Association non-contact Winter sports will be allowed to restart practice Saturday (Jan. 16) per the updated epidemic order announced today by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), while four Winter contact sports may begin indoor practices Saturday with non-contact activities.
Girls gymnastics, girls and boys bowling, and girls and boys swimming & diving, as “non-contact” sports, may also begin competition before the end of this month – swimming & diving Jan. 22 and gymnastics and bowling Jan. 25. Masks will be required of all participants except when they are actively participating in gymnastics and swimming & diving. Spectators will be capped at 100 persons in school gyms or 250 in stadiums and arenas, per MDHHS orders.
Basketball, competitive cheer, ice hockey and wrestling are considered “contact” sports and may begin non-contact practices Jan. 16, with their first competitions scheduled for Feb. 1. Because of the later start to competition schedules in those sports, the MHSAA will adjust its tournament dates for those four to conclude on later dates than what is currently scheduled – those dates will be announced later this week.
Girls and boys skiing, as an outdoor non-contact sport, was allowed to begin in December.
“We are glad to have three more sports join skiing in returning to full activity, but we understand the disappointment and frustration on the part of our athletes and coaches whose sports are not yet able to restart completely,” MHSAA Executive Director Mark Uyl said. “We will continue to adjust schedules to provide all of our winter teams as substantial an experience this season as possible, as part of our greater plan this school year to play all three seasons to conclusion.
“We have shown with our remaining Fall sports this month that our schools can participate safely, and we’re confident teams will continue to take all the appropriate precautions as we jump back into indoor Winter activities.”
Additionally, spring sports teams and fall teams not participating in the MDHHS rapid testing pilot program may begin four-player workouts and resume conditioning Jan. 16, but only with non-contact activities. Fall teams finishing their seasons in girls volleyball, Lower Peninsula girls swimming & diving and football have been able to do so by taking part in the MDHHS rapid testing pilot program for COVID-19; volleyball and swimming & diving will conclude with Finals this weekend, while football will finish Jan. 22-23 with 11-Player Finals.
