A new coffee bar where the Joe can come with a protein boost and the patrons can kick back is open for business in downtown Wyandotte.
Tongue's Protein Bar & Chill Lounge serves coffee mixed with protein powders. The beans are roasted at Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor. Tongue's also whips up smoothies, slushies and serves assorted snacks and treats. Herbal teas and healthful drinks are also served along with upbeat messages such as "Life is Beautiful" on blackboards. The feel is laid-back, with oversized leather furniture, lots of natural wood and places to read, talk or even play piano or chess.
Father and son owner-managers Greg and Tim Tongue are the brains behind the operation, where customers will find a Tongue Splitter (a quad shot) and a Tongueccino (coffee with flavoring).
The opening at 2958 Biddle Ave., the Dot's main drag, fills in a vacant spot in downtown, says downtown development director Natalie Rankine.
