With so much “new” in Detroit these days, it’s easy to overlook the classic standbys…until they’re gone. Hygrade Deli has survived for 65 years, just a stroll up Michigan Avenue from Corktown’s poshest eateries. And if the charm lies in Hygrade’s decor being stuck in time, then the kicker is—so are the prices. For the price of a pour over + tip down the road, you’ve got yourself a full breakfast special…with refills.
They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results. But we think what’s really crazy is switching things up once you’ve got the results right where you want them.
For over 65 years Hygrade Deli has been doing the simple stuff for Detroit better than anyone else. Corned beef. Meatloaf. Eggs and hash browns.
It’s not rocket science. Would you want it to be? (But speaking of rockets…what were you doing during the moon landing? Because we were right here, serving corned beef.)
You can’t remain a “best kept secret” for 65 years without being the best.
So, what’ll it be? A full Hygrade breakfast special, or one coffee at the “new” place for the same price.
Good food doesn’t have to come with a side of good grief.
Nothing new here. We promise.
