Today on the Bite Tonight: Astro Coffee
Located in the heart of Detroit’s Corktown, next door to Sugar House and just feet away from Slows BBQ is Astro Coffee. The baristas looked more like brew artists as they delicately created our selections. See how they ranked.

There’s something about a chalkboard menu that brings me back to my childhood.
Miravalle, Guatemala: Blueberry, plum. Bold, solid, rich. I could not taste fruit at all, but the coffee was still delicious.
Chocolate, hazelnut cookie: Slightly sweet, fresh baked, and soft. The hint of sea salt was amazing and took this cookie over the top.
Mocha: Rich blend of coffee and chocolate. Nice presentation!
I like Astro because it has a welcoming, kind atmosphere. The baristas were more than willing to assist with clueless patrons like Tiffany and I. We received helpful recommendations based on our tastes. With a comfortable, yet trendy community, Astro is brewing good ass coffee while using local ingredients. It was good catching up with a dear friend and the employees didn’t even kick us out when we stayed past closing. Good luck, Tiffany! I wish you nothing, but the very best. ❤
