Good Grub: Coleman’s Soul Food


It was a sad day in January when Ethel’s House of Soul closed after 37 years of business. But it’s a relief knowing that the Five Points space isn’t sitting vacant; for the last five months it’s been home to Coleman’s Soul Food.

Cook and owner Henry Coleman dishes up Detroit-style soul food–hot links, slow-cooked brisket, collard greens, corn bread, and smothered pork chops. If you go, expect bare-bones decor but gracious service–and don’t forget that Coleman’s is a cash-only joint.
