    • Neighborhood: Downtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Open for: Lunch, Dinner, Weekends, Late Night
    • Cards Accepted

    There is much debate over what really makes a great dive bar. Some say it’s the cheap drinks. Some describe a pool table or other entertainment as a necessity, while others insist it’s a certain je ne sais quois in the ambience that develops organically with a steady stream of repeat regulars and a laid back vibe honed over the years. Whatever [...]

  • Bangkok Cuisine
    • Neighborhood: Midtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Open for: Lunch, Dinner, Weekends
    • Vegetarian Options
    • Cards Accepted

    We love a deal as much as the next bargain savvy Detroiter, but we’re not willing to sacrifice quality for a lower price, especially when it comes to our food. That’s why Midtown’s Bangkok Cuisine Express II is one of our favorite spots in the city to grab lunch or dinner for under $10. Service here is quick and the food is consistently go [...]

    • Neighborhood: Corktown & Southwest
    • Price Level:   
    • Open for: Lunch, Dinner, Weekends
    • Cards Accepted
    • Free Parking Available

    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 [...]

    With a bar that opens at 7 a.m. on weekdays and a kitchen serving until 2 a.m., it’s always a good time to visit Honest John’s. This cozy neighborhood spot is part deli and part dive bar, but all fun. The quality and value of an Honest John’s breakfast cannot be overstated. Served until noon on weekdays and until 5 p.m. on weekends, the br [...]

    • Live Music
    • Outdoor Patio
    • Cards Accepted

    Located in Midtown’s Majestic Theater complex, which also houses Garden Bowl and renowned music venues the Majestic Theater and the Magic Stick, the Majestic Cafe sometimes gets overshadowed by its more famous housemates. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a stopover on your way to a concert. The Majestic Cafe is worth its own visit. [...]

  • O’Blivions Corktown Cafe
    • Neighborhood: Corktown & Southwest
    • Open for: Lunch
    • Cards Accepted

    Tucked on the corner of Michigan and Hamilton, we recently discovered a lunchtime hideaway that has been an underground local favorite for 18 years. The throwback interior of O’Blivions Corktown Cafe makes for a casual setting, with wood paneling, brick touches, vintage stained glass lamps, and decor that pays homage to the former Tigers Stadium. [...]

    • Price Level:   
    • Open for: Breakfast, Lunch, Weekends
    • Vegetarian Options
    • Cards Accepted

    Mornings at Milano Bakery and Cafe in Eastern Market are filled with the scents of freshly-baked bread and buttery, delicious pastry. The only thing better than intoxicating aroma of warm bread being pulled from the oven is taste of these perfectly-crafted masterpieces, which are crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Milano serve [...]

    • Neighborhood: Downtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Open for: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Weekends
    • Outdoor Patio
    • Cards Accepted

    Part cafe, part theater, and occasionally part art gallery, 1515 Broadway is the kind of funky, free-spirited establishment we wish we had on every block. From the street, 1515 looks like a small neighborhood cafe. You’d never know there was a 115-seat black box theater hiding in the back. The theater hosts a range of performance art, from poe [...]

  • Niki’s Pizza
    • Neighborhood: Downtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Open for: Lunch, Dinner, Weekends, Late Night
    • Outdoor Patio
    • Cards Accepted

    There are few foods more perfect than a well-made pizza. We think Detroit happens to make the best pies, with crispy deep dish crusts, lots of gooey cheese and robust marinara sauce. One of the best spots in the city to find a perfect Detroit-style pizza is Niki’s Pizza in Greektown. The kitchen turns out Detroit-style pizza with a thick, squa [...]
