|Astro Coffee, in Corktown, Detroit|
While traveling, I've become so reliant on GPS, whether in my phone or in the car, that I think I get lost even more easily.
On a recent trip, I drove from Detroit to Cincinnati in a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The GPS was flawless; it lowered the volume on my music and podcasts to gently remind me to take an exit, and it gave me ample warning when a turn or exit was coming.
Westin Book Cadillac, so I thought maybe it was a General Motors / Chrysler glitch. As in, I shouldn't be driving a Jeep to the Book Cadillac. But the hotel was not named for the car, rather, it was for the founder of Detroit.
Would Antoine Laumet de La Mothe Cadillac recognize Detroit today?

But we were after coffee and the Jeep was not cooperating - it literally sent us in circles until we were back at the Book Cadillac. Twice. So I remembered that an another trip, I'd eaten at Slow's BBQ (there actually are vegetarian choices) and had seen another adorable coffee shop just down the street.

We also grabbed a cinnamon danish because, vacation.
Astro uses local, organic produce and dairy products, and bread from Zingerman's, so you can feel good about supporting the local food scene.
Note: Chrysler loaned me the Jeep for my trip.
