5 Organic Detroit Restaurants Helping the City Eat Well and Live Better – Detroitisit


Many of us have missed out on eating at our favorite restaurants due to social distancing restrictions. Things are looking a little brighter this summer. Food doesn’t have to be bland to be good for you. Eating healthy in Detroit is even easier when there are so many different options. Not to mention that some contain locally sourced ingredients that are guaranteed to be fresh with rich flavors. This ultimately creates better health and fulfillment for Detroiters.

Summer is a time to eat healthy and local foods. Locally sourced, freshness is at its peak. Detroitisit has compiled a list of Detroit organic restaurants on many levels.


Carbs are an ongoing controversy, but it has led to alternative options. Enjoying a sandwich without bread isn’t as crazy as it sounds! Brotlos opened its doors in March on East Jefferson Avenue. What can you expect? Fill up on a range of quality clean sandwiches wrapped in veggies instead of bread. Take a flavor journey with the Cloud 9 Pastrami, which is loaded with Havarti cheese, shredded cabbage, pickle, red onion, flavorful ground mustard, and homemade Reuben sauce with collard greens. Pair a sandwich with a drink from Midwest Juicery and you’ll be spot on. click HERE to visit their website. Don’t be surprised if more organic restaurants in Detroit go bread-free!

Open daily from 8am to 7pm (except Tuesday), enjoy the newly opened Seasons Market featuring the Garden Cafe. Sustainability should be in the name, considering that these are pure recycled materials. Seasons Market also pays the many Michigan-based grocers fair wages for its produce. Choose from a variety of packed lunches such as salads, cereal bowls and baked goods. Best of all, everything is curated from local producers like Yum Village, Avalon Bakery, and Detroit Vegan Soul. Guests can enjoy their lunch and take a seat upstairs in the market’s loft with nearly 360-degree views of the surrounding neighborhood. Take advantage of al fresco dining in the garden and meet on the al fresco garden terrace. click HERE to visit their website.
