Finally repurposing a massive, former spice-processing facility (it's about... thyme?), Trinosophes is a cafe-cum-gallery-cum-live music venue-cum-soon to be second home of a Midtown record shop.
Serving coffee and tea against a backdrop of visual art and live music, Trinosophes lets you get your fill of caffeine and culture in one place. The Eastern Market coffeeshop serves its espresso shots in eclectic ceramic cups that looks like abstract oyster shells. Trinosophes also features beans from Detroit's Anthology, Ypsilanti's Hyperion, or San Francisco's Ritual. Besides the coffee, the food is superb and made completely from scratch in-house, and the neighboring Peoples Records is a must-stop.
