The women behind Detroit's newest little diner, Rose's Fine Food, have opened their doors for a soft opening this past weekend, after a successful Kickstarter campaign and lots of hard work. Cousins Lucy Carnaghi and Molly Mitchell want to bring fair wages, local ingredients, and picnic baskets to their neighborhood, and that dream is becoming a reality now that the doors are officially open.
Core Detroit's Kat Rembacki reports that the food is delicious, and inexpensive. The most expensive items on the menu are only $8.50, and there is no need to tip as employees are paid a living wage. Rembacki reports that the completely optional tips are donated to a Detroit-based charity picked by the employees. As for food, they have homemade toad in the hole (grilled cheese with an egg), banana and peanut butter sandwiches, pancakes, grits, and other diner classics. Oh, and they have a bunch of homemade desserts like pie, donuts, and upside down cake. They're open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., seven days a week, serving breakfast all day and lunch too.
