Detroit Shoreway Shopping, Sipping & Snacking

It is as chic as a small neighborhood in Chicago...

If you haven't driven down Detroit Ave in Cleveland (Detroit Shoreway Neighborhood) as of late you are missing the most up and coming strip of stores known to the city. In partnership with the City of Cleveland's Community Development Office, Detroit Shoreway offers the Storefront Renovation Program for commercial tenants (with building owner's approval.) This partnership is drawing many inspired small business owners.

Though there are many stores popping up, TWO of them truly stand out!

Room Service : 6505 Detroit Ave., is a chic home-decor/gift/furniture store that owner Danielle DeBoe describes as "a harmonious juxtaposition between old and new." Sleek, contemporary furniture is mixed with high-end, hip gift items and a smattering of antiques.

Duo Home : 6507 Detroit Ave., is a combo interior design business and shop featuring eclectic, contemporary yet organic home decor and furniture items.

Also, while you are in the neighborhood make sure to stop into Gypsy Beans & Baking Co. (6425 Detroit Avenue) for a hot cup-of-joe and some of their amazing homemade bakery. Indulge in some of their most savored bakery items such as the Amazon Chili Pepper Brownies, the Chocolate Truffle Tartlet in a Salted Shortbread Crust and the White Chocolate Iced Layer cake with a Honey Lavender Syrup.
