This Eastern Market café is much more than a coffee shop—although locals do love the food here (a mix of breakfast and lunch sandwiches, pastries, and salads), and Trinosophes does make an all-star almond chai latte. The owners previously ran the esteemed Bohemian National Home programming, which went underground for a few years before finding a permanent home at Trinosophes, which functions as both a performance venue and art gallery. Trinosophes is responsible, for example, for the first solo exhibition in fifteen years of prominent Detroit artist Jim Crawford from the Cass Corridor movement, which includes some of his sculpture, mixed media, and photography. Still, you don’t need a particular exhibition or show to bring you here. The long communal wood tables are a good excuse for an Eastern Market pit stop; plus Peoples Records is right next door.
