The Traffic Jam and Snug, established 1965, is truly one of Detroit's hidden treasures. Known throughout Midtown for our in-house bakery, microbrewery, and dairy, our curiously intimate multi-level dining rooms, and an eclectic menu of made-from-scratch dishes, there is simply nothing quite like The Traffic Jam.

We only use the best, freshest ingredients. We know this because we make everything ourselves. Each day, our bakery turns out a new Bread of the Day, from authentic ethnic crusted rolls and vegetable breads to whole grain sourdoughs and cheese loaves. In fact, head baker Pete Waldenmeyer stopped keeping records of recipes years ago. A shamefully delicious selection of pies, cakes, and cookies are made here too, not to mention our very own hot fudge and ice cream.

Our award-winning cheeses and beers are a local favorite. We actually use the same equipment for brewing beer and making cheese, and we encourage you to witness this unique process from our observation balcony. One popular lunchtime choice is our cheese platter, consisting of three of our finest cheeses, served with premium crackers, fresh berries, and house-made honey dijon mustard.

On December 18, 1992, after a decade-long legal battle, the Traffic Jam became the first brew-pub in the state of Michigan. Since then, we have been brewing an uncommon, ever-changing selection of hand-crafted beers. Take, for example, the Grand Theft Pilsner, or the Java Porter. Available in 14 or 22 oz. pours, or try them all with our 8 oz. sampler glasses.
