Trinosophes Makes Detroit Tastier
This March, Detroit’s Eastern Market welcomed a cool little place to its neighborhood. It’s the art gallery, performance space and café, Trinosophes. The venue’s vintage-style café is getting a lot of attention due to its earthy, crafty, cozy atmosphere and a menu offering American and Indian fare at affordable prices (as in, nothing costs more than $10).
Heartier options include the Moroccan lamb tagine, which is a citrus curry with potatoes, onions and garlic. They also offer a vegetable-based Thai coconut curry featuring non-dairy coconut milk, chickpeas, an array of spices and basmati rice. Although the rotating menu changes on a daily basis, some recurring favorites include assorted tapas, a roasted beet salad with goat cheese, and eggs Benedict with a side of potatoes.
Lighter choices include vegan cookies, oatmeal-walnut cookies, vanilla bean pound cakes, coconut-lime cupcakes, as well as tart pies that use local, organic ingredients. Trinosophes also serves coffee from Anthology (local) and Just Coffee (imported from Wisconsin), as well as extremely fragrant hot or cold teas and Mexican Coke, the original formula for Coca-Cola, which uses sugarcane instead of high-fructose corn syrup.
