No online coupon sites are needed to get a great deal at the Detour.  On Tuesdays, Bloody Marys are only $6 and mimosas are only $5 all day long, and on Wednesdays, buy one egg sandwich and get the second one for half price!  Perfect for mid-week breakfast or lunch with a pal.  In other news, we’ve recently remodeled the patio–now you can eat yummy Detour food al fresco even when it’s raining!
