"Traffic Jam and Snug is a lot of things and altogether one of a kind."


"A Midtown favorite since 1965, Traffic Jam & Snug has been serving an eclectic mix of foods that please carnivores and vegetarians alike with longtime favorites an extensive list of specials that changes daily. It’s more than just a restaurant. Traffic Jam & Snug has its own bakery that produces artisan breads and desserts. It also houses Michigan’s smallest licensed dairy that makes ice cream, hand-crafted beers and award-winning cheeses."


"Midtown is peppered with restaurants, ...Detroit institution Traffic Jam & Snug, 511 W. Canfield St. If you go to the Traffic Jam and don’t try the mushroom soup … well, I can’t help you. "


"I spent almost 3 weeks in Detroit this month. I had intended to do a Battle of the Detroit Veggie Burgers piece but alas most of the places I wanted to try weren't able to happen. The winner as it stands would be Traffic Jam & Snug in the Cass Corridor section of Detroit. The spicy lentil veggie burger is just amazing. I can't get enough of this sandwich, I have it almost every time I visit Michigan."


"This is the spot to come for homemade food with an eclectic twist and a great atmosphere."
