DETAILS

In the 1960s, Cass Corridor's Traffic Jam was a standard bar named after its unfortunate parking situation, and Snug was a nearby ice cream parlor. In the 1990s, the combined Traffic Jam & Snug began brewing its own beer, and though the ice cream parlor is gone, the restaurant continues to brew up to five original varieties of beer at a time in addition to making its own cheese and baking breads in-house. The menu offers atypically light bar fare - including salads, broiled fish and the popular cheese platter - along with burgers and a variety of sandwiches. For dessert, the house-made ice cream and hot fudge is a nod to the establishment's heritage.

 

Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner daily. Late-night Fri-Sat.

"When different owners took over a couple of years ago, they knew what a good thing founder Ben Edwards had created. And so they didn't tamper with success. The Wayne State University hangout (professors rather than students for the most part) has always been known for its fresh-baked breads (including an ever-changing bread du jour), house-made cheeses and eclectic menu that emphasizes vegetarian dishes."- Gayot
