Quick bites, coffee and dessert

And speaking of Corktown, there’s a new spot for quick bites, dessert, coffee and gelato. Momento Gelato and Coffee serves up paninis, caprese salads and soups, but the real stars of this place are the coffees and gelatos. Opened in January, Momento Gelato and Coffee is owned by Tom Isaia, who began his journey into the world of European espresso in 1975, and opened The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor shortly thereafter. While he has spent much of his life introducing Michiganders to coffee, he dreamed for years of exploring another passion – gelato. Through immersive technique perfected by Isaia during his time in Bologna Italy, he mastered the exquisite art of gelato. Momento gelato is made from the finest ingredients and is creating with Italian-made equipment. “This is not the Americanized version – it’s Italian gelato.” adds Isaia. The coffee is made-to-order to complement the sweet notes of gelato. Momento sources the highest quality Arabica coffee beans from Coffee Express Roasting Company of Plymouth. You also can find their famous gelato at several area stores including Market Fresh in Beverly Hills and Market Square in West Bloomfield. 2120 Trumbull Street, Detroit
