Lunch in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan (B)

Best known as the home of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor is as much a foodie destination as it is a college town. Whether you are visiting for the annual Ann Arbor Art Fair, a Michigan football game, or a weekend getaway, at some point you’re likely to wonder where to eat lunch in Ann Arbor. And trust me — there is no shortage of lunch options in this foodie college town. As a Michigander, I’ve eaten lunch in Ann Arbor many times over the past 20-some years. However, I’ve limited my recommendations in this post to my favorite lunch spots from my visits within the past three years.

Interspersed with the classic American burger joints and pizzerias you might expect to see in a Midwest college town are restaurants serving exotic ethnic cuisines and full vegan menus. Also, with Ann Arbor’s location in Southeast Michigan, the city’s restaurants benefit from the American Midwest’s bountiful agriculture. In fact, many of Ann Arbor’s best lunch spots source as many of their ingredients as possible from local farms and purveyors. Of course, Michigan is also known for our craft beer, and Ann Arbor’s breweries certainly add to that reputation. At lunchtime, the local microbreweries — such as Arbor Brewing Company — are dishing up delicious fare alongside their Strawberry Blonde, Farmhouse, and Steelhead Red ales.
