We got a rude reminder of how bad hospital cafeteria food can be when we found the Mackinac Cafe at Beaumont hospital closed in the evening (we’d dined there well for lunch)and had to go to the nearby cafeteria, although the tuna and egg salad was okay.
But we also got out of the hospital a little for lunch and had some solid Greek diner fare in Birmingham at Greek Islands, where we had: chicken/lemon/rice soup, gyro, Greek salad, baklava, the whole shebang. Across the street is a trendy cafe, Commonwealth Cafe, that comes well recommended for its fried egg sandwich and cappuccino, among other things.
In Royal Oak, we went to a good Middle Eastern restaurant, Gemmayze Lebanese Kitchen, sitting at the bar on high stools watching fresh pita come out of the rustic oven and eating it warm with hummus.
