Traffic Jam & Snug / Division Street Boutique

 Happy Friday everyone!



 I went out for lunch this week at the Traffic Jam & Snug, a restaurant bakery located in the heart of Midtown. It was built on the site of the Doghouse Saloon in 1965 and is known as Michigan’s smallest licensed dairy. Traffic Jam bakes bread fresh every single day and are renowned for their cheese and beer.


We ordered the bread of the day (Pumpkin Spice), the Tex Mex Lentil Burger, Vegetarian Spinach Lasagne, and Carlotta Chocolatta Ice Cream Cheesecake. The burger was mediocre, nothing too special, but the lasagna was delicious. One thing that I really liked was their variety of vegetarian options.I loved the cheesecake! It was such a luxurious dish and was served with my favorite type of ice cream: coffee!




Traffic Jam has a quirky interior full of things like Vernor’s sign, traffic lights, and huge globes. It has a really cool restaurant atmosphere and I would recommend stopping by at least once, especially since it is a local Detroit institution. Check it out on Canfield off Cass Avenue!

I stopped by Division Street Boutique today after eating out with some friends. It's a wonderful little store that sponsors and promotes local artists and is dedicated to the re-imaging of Detroit.




They sell apparel, hats, swag, and a wonderful collection of records and VHS tapes. One of the owners, a university student, gave us some free "Detroit Hustles Harder" stickers! Make sure to check it out on Fridays and Saturdays on Division Street at the Eastern Market.

Thanks for reading and have an amazing weekend!
