Best Bread and Pastries
Avalon is the place in Detroit to buy bread, pastries, grab a latte or soup or a delicious and warm foccia (bread, veggie toppings). Vegan hot foods, cookies and soymilk lattes are offered. Inner city Detroit is changing, and Avalon is one of the best things to happen here. In a funky neighbourhood near Wayne St Univ. No evenings, but Sunday brunch has just started.

Excellent veg options!
Just returned from a visit to Kalamazoo and we were very fortunate to have found Crow's Nest. Vast number of choices for veggies and vegans on the menu, including sandwiches, scrambles (great sauces), sides, vegan burger, etc., as well as substitutions on other dishes. The very helpful waitress made sure that we had the vegan alternatives for entrees, breads, sides, etc., and that nothing was cooked in butter. Excellent soy/rice cappuccinos rounded out a really great meal. Sunlit upper enclosed balcony, brick walls and cozy atmosphere. Non smoking. Highly recommended.
Note: there is a discount coupon in the Yellow Pages!

Plenty for Vegans
Emphasis on unique, creative home made soups and salads. Usually two vegan soups on, as well as a few great tasting salads. One time all four soups were vegan! Also a wonderful vegan sandwich. Coffee, tea, espresso etc. Just off the main drag in Windsor, this is a great little café.

Welcome to Midtown Detroit!
It has been a long time coming, but now that it's finally open it's proven to be well worth the wait. Tucked away near the Medical Centre and some cool galleries, this open-concept, loft-like space is a welcome oasis handy to the DIA, Orchestra Hall and Wayne State University. Always happily busy whenever we have gone, the menu is somewhat similar to its Ann Arbor parent restaurant, with lots of excellent vegan choices (healthy AND comfort food; almost anything that isn't already vegan can be made so by request!) and extensive gluten-free choices (including St. Peter's ale. Ask for the gluten-free menu). Juices, coffee bar, smoothies, lots of great alcoholic drinks and wine, good beer on tap. Everything we've had here has been delicious.
