    This Midtown family favorite has the right combination of reliable food staples and quirky eating environment to be one of the more approachable of Detroit's culinary institutions. [Eater 38 Member]

    The Carlotta dessert is so delicious I feel no shame in devouring it. If chocolate and coffee are a weakness of yours, you will be in heaven. Promise.

    The Pork Loin Kamatsu salad was pretty tasty. Don't mistake those hot sauce jelly beans on the plate for tomatoes like I did and pop a whole one in your mouth!

    ask for the lentil patty on top of a mixed greens salad with the house dressing. its the best way to appreciate how flavorful it is without the bun getting in the way!

    Go to TJ's for dinner or a late night out; get the Jam Burger or Meatloaf and save room for amazing desserts. It's a microbrew too. My favorite meeting place in Detroit for many years. Read more

    Check out the bathtub fountain in warmer weather. You won't notice it unless you look at the establishment from 2nd avenue toward the patio.
