Lots of vegetarian and vegan options here but nothing that wowed me. Good split pea soup; tasty quiche but with a cold interior; solid vegetable sandwich. Was disappointed by the dry and mushy date bar and bland chocolate chip cookie. The staff wasn't that cherry.

This is my go to place for coffee/breakfast. They have really good homemade pastries and baked goods. I also have had lunch there on occasion and really like their pizza slices. They open bright and early so I can make a stop before work and...More

Sunday morning 2 people serving customers, 1 at the register the other frantically trying to serve everyone. Long wait, chaotic atmosphere, above average food.

Avalon bakery is hands down one of the best bakeries I have ever been to. They have something for everyone. Pop in for breakfast, lunch, a snack, or grab something to take home. They offer an amazing variety of breads, sweets, salads, coffees and teas....More

We found ourselves here during the week for happy hour. We had excellent sandwiches and beer that was half-price. Their focus on Michigan product is very nice to see and is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate going back

Excellent pastries and breads using organic and locally sourced ingredients. Bread here is always served fresh. Whenever I have people coming over I always get my bread here beforehand.

This place was recommended and so glad checked it out - have been there now on a few occasions when in Detroit. Great salads and amazing breads and bakery items - good coffee and juice selection too.

Good coffee and pastries for a quick breakfast on the go. There are some tables if you want to sit awhile but it is not a large place. It has a nice local feel.

Stopped in yesterday for a snack. Very fresh baked goods, generous sizing, friendly staff, and had three gluten free choices! Friend said the coffee was great. I had unsweetened ginger tea from the cooler. A gem.
