If you are a Detroitohphile you cant get here soon enough. The most down home placeIve discovered in the city. I feel more like Im hanging out with friends at their house as opposed to being a patron of an establishment. The spot is actually a house turned into cafe. The proprietor, Doctor Bob Chiropractor straightens out backs and soothes muscles. Great landscaping. There were baby chickens roaming around,( a gift to Doctor Bob)when I stopped by the other day.In the back is a small dining area and counter. Help youreself to coffee or tea. Small hallway with bookcase and lounge area leads into the living room where on Friday night you can catch great local live entertainment in a very intimate setting. Extra tables are set up on those occasions. Tree house out front. Bonfires- Wednesday night drum circles.The patrons and volunteer staff is of the tolerant accepting peace and love crowd. Hippie types frequent the place.The quality of the organicvegan menu has improved since Ive been visiting in the last year or so.There was a five star blues quartet here a few weeks back. Goldengate is a great place for a positive vibe to listen to music, study and make friends with unpretentious amicable humans. Free wireless.

Get your colon irrigated at one end of the building and then go eat a burger on the other end. Doesn't sound like a very appetizing place to me. More power to the rest of you, but I think I'll pass on this one.

Where is your sense of adventure? It's a great place. Go even just to look at it. A yellow house set into a garden right on the corner of Woodward and GoldenGate (I think) full of interesting posters, artifacts, and lots of space for performances. A chiropractor works on your bones, right? Not your innards. And no meat there, it's vegan. They have drum night, too.

I keep trying to get my stockbroker woman friend to join me for a lunch hour in the sweat lodge there, but so far no luck.

Yes Charlotte. You all should consider a forum night there.

Golly. I remember them painting that building yellow (like 2 or 3 years ago I think), and as I recall it has some art on it. I did think that it was an odd color for a chiropractor office--makes more sense that they serve food. Even more odd if they do both. It's on my list of places to check out next time I am in town--not to far from UDM...
