    There are plenty of places around Detroit to just grab a coffee, but Urban Bean is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. This corner cafe features a fabulously retro orange exterior (the same color as the shag carpeting your parents had in the ‘70s) and floor-to-ceiling windows.

    If we described the menu at Pollo Chapin as a fusion of Latin American and Southern food, you might think Tex-Mex. That would be a travesty. This is something completely different, and it is absolutely scrumptious. Tucked into a quiet southwest neighborhood, the exterior looks like a cheery yellow house with green trimmings which blends seamless [...]
