Long considered the lesser of the two terminals at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in terms of food options, the North Terminal is finally getting some well-deserved updates. Among the latest improvements: a brand new outpost of metro Detroit favorite Cantoro Italian Market Trattoria.

The location, which opened in April inside the North Terminal’s pre-security baggage claim area, features a variety of Italian dishes and grocery items like Cantoro-branded sauces, olive oil, and boxed pasta, according to a release. Travelers can expects to find grab-and-go options and snacks ranging from paninis to farfalle primavera to pasta. Cantoro is also outfitted with a coffee station serving espresso drinks alongside baked goods, and desserts such as cannoli and tiramisu. Count on breakfast croissants, muffins, and burritos before 10:30 a.m.

This is the fourth outpost for Cantoro Market, which opened the restaurant in partnership with the airport food service operator HMSHost. It’s also the first in a string of new restaurants including Jolly Pumpkin Taphouse and Anita’s Kitchen Lebanese Cafe coming to the North Terminal between now and spring 2020.
