Angelo’s, located on Catherine Street amid the quaintness that is Kerrytown, is an Ann Arbor staple. A true family business, Angelo Vangelatos came to Ann Arbor from Greece in 1951 with his soon-to-be wife Patricia Verames. They worked hard to establish Angelo’s, which was thriving by the 1970s. Later, their son Steve took over and carries on Angelo’s delicious legacy today.
With an in-house bakery, Angelo’s homemade bread is a must. They’ve recently added a Portabello Benedict to their specials — a delicious vegetarian option topped with tomato and hollandaise sauce to complement their crisp bacon, turkey sausage, lox and other breakfast treats. With its Mediterranean heritage, a simple Greek salad at Angelo’s seems like a good choice.
Angelo’s embraces Ann Arbor’s community culture — not just the city’s culinary tastes, but its artists as well. Illustrations by local artist Michael C. Konas line the walls, complemented by University alum Joyce Lieberman’s “UNStill Life” series.
Breakfast at Angelo’s is a tasty and comforting way to start the day. A glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice (authentic at “market price”) and a stack of cinnamon raisin pancakes — how could anything go wrong after that?
