People love this cantina. I have never seen it less than half full, and they've recently expanded the space to add a huge bar on the side of the restaurant.

The distribution hub for Arbor Brewing Company, a well-regarded local brewery. This spot offers a pub-style comfy atmosphere and great brews. My go-to choices are the Euchre Pilsner, Buzzsaw IPA, and the Faricy's Dry Stout.

Essentials

The local food co-op, which is open to the public. Though it's not a full-service grocer, they have fresh breads, produce, and lots of vegetarian/vegan staples.

Everything Else

Lush, rolling campus for the students of Eastern Michigan University. EMU is the anchor of higher education in Ypsilanti, replete with friendly and knowledgeable faculty, students, and administrators. I recommend taking a stroll around the perimeter, just to soak up the vibe.
