wow, all great places mentioned.
yup, Zingerman’s isn’t cheap … my grilled pastrami and chopped liver was over $11 just for the sandwich. However, they make some of the best deli sandwiches anywhere in large part because of the bread (they are a bakery also) … if there is a "crack" of the bread world, it is Zingerman’s bread. Ridiculously addictive.
The Fleetwood Diner is a venerable institution … even if it is a greasy-spoon diner located in an original early 1960’s double-wide mobile-home-type trailer in the midst of $250,000+ historic homes. Some years ago the city wanted to tear it down, but the protest and outrage was so severe that they abandoned the idea. Try the Meaty Hippie Hash.
Angelo’s … what a great breakfast spot! "When we leave that place we’ll be laughing out loud / smiling so hard we’ll draw a crowd /they’ll say ‘what’s up, man?’ and we’ll just have to boast / about the eggs over easy, hash browns and toast …"
"Angelo’s" by Ann Arbor singer/songwriter Dick Siegel
The Sidetrack Bar and Restaurant is a very cool, old Pub. It has a beautiful old interior and the trains pass within about 7ft of windows at tableside. Get a table by the windows with an unsuspecting friend for a good chuckle when the train comes roaring past. (sigh … history always makes me thirsty)
