I kicked off the year in conquest of working, hanging out and consuming coffee 100 times in style at a few of my favorite spots in The Mitten.
An early morning Latte & Milk from The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company in Midtown Detroit really hit the spot.
Opening last year, it’s a coffee bar by day and a wine bar by night. They create freshly roasted coffee to order and also offer craft cocktails and local beers. Looking for a cold coffee beverage? I recommend A Chilly Mexican. 🙂
Another early morning was spent working and consuming a delicious Peanut Butter Latte at Plymouth Coffee Bean Co. in Plymouth.
They are Michigan’s longest running independent coffee house opening in 1993. Sit in one of the many rooms in the old downtown house. You’ll find local art and eclectic and random furniture throughout. My time was spent on a couch in the Green Room.
I took a short drive on a Sunday over to Port Huron and enjoyed a 20 oz. Caffé Crème Caramel at Raven Cafe. Cinnamon, vanilla and caramel deliciousness in a giant mug!
The Raven Cafe opened in 2002 in a building that dates back to Civil War times.
You’ll find sandwiches, desserts, craft beer and other alcoholic drinks on the menu. They have live entertainment in the evenings and books and art dot the walls throughout the multi-level cafe. Have always had exceptional and friendly service.
Upstairs relax on the couches, checkout some of the books and the view of the St. Clair River and Canada from the balcony. The Almond Joy Latte is also recommended. 🙂
Three great spots. Lot’s more to go! Stay tuned as I will periodically highlight other spots that I go to during this year of #ElCafeDe2013. Hope to see you highly caffeinated out on the open road.
