Best of Ann Arbor

Literati

"This is my favorite corner in Ann Arbor" reads a quote painted on the brick wall exterior of Ann Arbor's most coveted bookstore: "Literati". Located on E.

A J. Keller property

Rent: there was a musical devoted to it, you tend to forget about it and apparently it’s too damn high. With J. Keller, paying rent is a breeze which is one reason that makes them the best landlord in Ann Arbor.

Cottage Inn

Pizza solves anything, but good pizza solves everything. Cottage Inn has been my pizza of choice since I arrived in Ann Arbor. It makes game days better, girls nights cheesier and Tuesday afternoons breezier.

Sadako

Despite the fact that the midwest is not known for their sushi — one of Ann Arbor's most popular restaurants for students and residents alike is "Sadako" — an extremely popular Japanese restaurant located on South University Avenue.

Fleetwood Diner

Feta cheese tastes good on everything, but Fleetwood Diner knows that feta cheese tastes best covering a mount of hash browns like a warm blanket, as students take the trek to Main Street, their heads still booming with last night's regrets.

Avalon

I write this in a cozy chair on a Sunday morning in the corner of Avalon Café & Kitchen. The restaurant is completely full, an eclectic crowd of families, Ann Arbor locals, students and visitors. Some are working, some are eating, but all are happy.

Blind Pig

The first time I stepped into the Bling Pig I was extraordinarily underwhelmed.

Afternoon Delight

Much like the Starland Vocal band single by the same name, and much like that one scene in Good Will Hunting when Matt Damon mocks the therapist who is trying to hypnotise him free of his deep-seeded attachment issues borne out of early childhood abandonment, breakfast at Afternoon Delight is fan

Michigan Theater

We all know the classic movie theatre date. Odds are your first date was spent in the back row of a movie theatre, watching a movie you barely remember, interlocking arms and exchanging kisses with your high school boyfriend or girlfriend.

Hilarious, genuine and a little bit awkward, Professor Edward Cho is probably the only professor in the economics department that doesn’t make students wish they had picked a different major. If I could take every econ class with Cho I would because he actually makes 102 interesting.
