Astro Coffee - You Gotta Eat Here #3

I tasted my first Flat White, a few years ago
at a Detroit coffee bar in Corktown.  
It was wonderful.

 I was hooked and happy until the bar closed shortly thereafter. 

I've searched from Ann Arbor to Birmingham 
for the illusive Flat White 
only to find it again in,
of all places, 

My daughter and I visited ASTRO coffee Saturday.  

We opened the door to enter a space that was cool, 
comfortable, and relaxed.  

Can you guess our order?

When the owner handed me my Flat White, 
the years since the last one melted away. 

Just as I remembered.
I closed my eyes.
For a brief moment, 
I was back at that cool coffee bar, 
perched on one of it's window stools 
my daughter nudged me and said, 
"Ooh, look at that sandwich!"

It was a beautiful long loaf with sliced beets and 
a spread of creme fraiche with avocado and mint.  
She ordered one.  

I opted for the pork meatball with caramelized onions and aioli.  
It was wonderful!  

Later, we selected a desert from the counter display of
brownies, banana bread, cakes and cookies.

We plan to return soon!

The staff is friendly.

The atmosphere is pleasant.

The food and coffee are wonderful.

Without a doubt,
You gotta eat here!
