Best Michigan Coffee Shops

People frequent Michigan coffee shops for all sorts of reasons. Some show up to read, and some are there to sip a cup of coffee and soak up the atmosphere.


The first store opened in East Lansing in 1995. Biggby roasts and blends their own coffees, including specialty brews like Michigan Cherry.

Java Joes Café

Upon entering, you’ll be amongst all the décor, murals, knick-knacks, and a never-ending breakfast menu. The shop is a tourist attraction in and of itself.


Every Sunday morning, Brew features a French toast and mimosa breakfast and, for the musically inclined, they have free acoustic music starting at 8:00 on Sunday evenings.

There is a great atmosphere to the place: come in during the colder months and take a seat by the fireplace or, when the weather is warmer, move outside and enjoy the breeze off Grand Traverse Bay.

Java Jones

The good folks at Water Street Coffee Joint take their coffee very seriously. The only thing they seem to care more about than giving you a perfect cup of java is art.  Each location features a different artist every month.

If you don’t properly wake up until the sun goes down, the open-all-hours Bitter End might just be your home away from home. An extensive selection of specialty drinks and over fifty flavors of Torani syrup.

Rowster Coffee

This award-winning small shop in the Russel Block building uses a drip-style, pour-over coffee brewing process. The time it takes to make/craft their offerings is well worth it. Get the iced pour over!

Foster Coffee Company

Latte lovers should head to Owosso’s historic downtown. You can be assured that you are going to get a great pour with the care and time they take with each one.

When locals in Ann Arbor think quality coffee, this coffee roaster is front and center. I recommend ordering a Long Pull using their signature Lobster Butter Love coffee beans.
