Attention chocolate & ice cream lovers on the east side of Detroit
Friends of mine recently bought a shop in Grosse Pointe Woods. They sell Alinosi's Ice Cream and chocolates, custom ordered cakes, etc. It's an old-fashion soda shop. They're good folks and could use the support. Here's a website I created for them with more info: http://www.chocolatebar-cafe.com/

1. There's still a Sanders in Grosse Point on Kercheval!
And one at Laurel Park Place mall in Livonia.

Sanders is the home of:

1. Hot fudge cream puff sundaes
2. The Boston Cooler (Vernors float)
3. The bumpy layer creme cake.


I have to make sure we get my brother to the one in Grosse Pointe this summer.

2. BHowever, they closed the original one
And turned it into a Caribou Coffee. It had such character. The new one is okay. I loved the marble counter, wood panneling, and the picture of Fred Sanders on the wall.

3. I used to go to the one on Griswold and the Dearborn location
I'd skip lunch and have a cream puff sundae, instead. They were still open when I first moved to this area in 1987. I think there was even one at Oakland Mall, too.

Their outlet store used to be on Oakman BLVD, just west of Hamilton. I used to go there and get bumpy layer cream cakes at half price.

4. Great website!
I wish them the best of luck in their business endeavor. I like Sanders too, but the post is about Alinosi's!

6. I know exactly where it is...
You're talking my stompin' grounds! It's in the same block as Lou's Pet Shop, another super family-owned business in the Woods.

I will have to break my no-you-can't-have-any-ice cream-because-it-puts-weight-on-you-like-nothing-else rule, and stop in and have a dip or two. What a perfect excuse!

I grew up just one street the other side of Vernier (8 Mile), and still live in the area (S.C.S.), pass by the store frequently when I take that way to work, or drop in Lou's for some essentials. I'll be sure to stop in.
