One thing that can bring people together, especially Michigan locals, is food. People show up in places where there’s food and they don’t like to eat, right? In Michigan, there are tons of hidden gems all over the state when it comes to food, it’s the land of moms and dads. Nonetheless, major cities like Grand Rapids, Detroit, and Lansing get a ton of chain restaurants. There’s another place looking to slip in among the rest in Mitten State.
Detroit is home to some of the best food we have to offer in Michigan, from famous Coney Islands and Detroit style pizzas to big business like Ruth Chris, Texas Roadhouse and others. While there’s no shortage of dining options in Motown, there are always restaurants vying for space in front of the store. One restaurant got its wish and will join the ranks in downtown Detroit at the end of this month.
The Sugar Factory announced earlier this week that it will officially open on August 29. They will be located at 45 Monroe Street in downtown Detroit. Sugar Factory seeks to bring all of its tradition and popularity to the streets of Motown. Over the past few years, Sugar Factory locations have kept popping up all over the country, followed by tons of contention and opinions.
Sugar Factory is known for its extravagant menu that encompasses something for small and large appetites, but also a variety of flavor palettes. They have a menu that serves brunch, lunch, and dinner items, making The Sugar Factory a go-to at almost any time of the day. They have coffees, milkshakes, burgers, pastas, fortified mimosas and more to offer.
Their menu is loaded and will satisfy all your tastes. Their menu is full of breakfast options including omelets, pancakes, French toast, hash, pancakes, and even chicken and waffles. Yes, you can order the waffles separately, but they offer a wide selection of meats, cereals and fruits to accompany these dishes. Also don’t think I forgot their breakfast sandwiches, I can only imagine they are on fire.
Their lunch and dinner menu does more than just get the job done, they’re stacked with all kinds of mouth-watering entrees. They have several different types of pasta which are mainly different types of spaghetti and alfredo, a section of burgers and monster burgers to choose from, including their rainbow sliders, and many other grill options like sandwiches, lobster tails and steaks.
Their drink menu is perhaps the most intriguing part of their restaurant, I mean they have pretty much EVERYTHING! They have drinks to start the day, basic soft drinks to enjoy, milkshakes for smiles and even adult drinks that make everyone happy. I didn’t know a place could make so many different drinks but I’m bound to try them all lol. They have coffees ranging from lattes, mochas, espressos, and iced coffees, but the morning drinks don’t stop there. They also have hot chocolates, refreshments and smoothies which could be the drink to start the day. It goes without saying that every sit-down restaurant has a fountain and can bring soft drinks on demand, so let’s get to the fun stuff!
The bar seems like the place to be when visiting the sugar factory. Besides having what is a normal full bar with beer and cocktails, the Sugar Factory has gone a step further and created its own spiked mimosas. They’re your traditional mimosa with added flavors like Henny Passion Punch, Strawberry Rum Runner, and Raspberry Lemon Drop. They added flavors that use more alcohol, mostly vodka and rum, however, a peak in the party.
Will the drinks be enough to keep Sugar Factory afloat as they rival every other restaurant in downtown Detroit? I’m excited to take the drive and try this place out for myself, but only time will tell!
