Detroit Breakfasts - Eastern Market

Rosedale | | Jul 6, 2014 08:36 PM

Most Saturday mornings I go to yoga in midtown at the crack of dawn and hit up Eastern Market for shopping and breakfast.

Last week I finally tried Vivio's and enjoyed myself, The service was great, but I wasn't crazy about it overall. Maybe I ordered wrong. I got the special, lobster omelette, which was just okay, My hash browns were way undercooked.

Apparently this is where breakfast drinkers go. Wahoo!! My people.
Never saw so many wine/shot glasses with eggs or pancakes in my life before 10:00 a.m. Not wanting to be left out, my table got a round of Bloody Marys. Two of us got a side of bacon in the drink, one plain. My husband felt they were "toned down, which is probably a good thing at breakfast". I felt my bacon-free drink was pretty bland and lacking spice and the acid I expect of tomato juice.

Even though we were stuffed, we stopped at the beignet food truck on the way to our car. Awesome. I wish they'd drive by my house like the ice cream man. They'd make a fortune

I love Russell Street and have been dozens and dozens of times and would go every day if the wait wasn't so long. My husband isn't thrilled with the communal dining, which I love, but the quiche of the day keeps him coming.

When we couldn't get in to Russell Street on Memorial Day weekend due to the insane line, we ventured into Corktown and had a wonderful breakfast at Brooklyn Street Local. Sat on the patio in the sun and got a delicious breakfast salad and the best, lightest, airiest lemon scones.

Venturing out of my normal routine and discovering Brooklyn Street Local made me wonder what Detroit breakfast gems I'm missing.

What do you recommendation?
