    They have one of the best cappuccinos in Ann Arbor. The space is tiny, so I wouldn't come here for a guaranteed work space. Maybe if you're lucky..?

    Grab a pour over and hang out within the architectural marvel that is Nickels Arcade. No electrical outlets, so not ideal for work, but no reason too, just enjoy the scenery and coffee! :)

    Tad bit pricey but the lattes and cappuccinos are worth it. Free flat or sparkling water are included in your order.

    This is the place to get coffee if you're a coffee elitist. Every cup is brewed to order, and the blends are exquisite.

    If you're getting more than one coffee, try the same blend using a different brewing method. The difference in taste and mouth feel is crazy.

    Ask the baristias if you're not sure what to get. Amazing capacunios and espresso. If you want a serious dose of caffine the iced drip coffee is just the thing.

    Hands down the best coffee in Ann Arbor (in Michigan? in the Midwest?). Instead of ordering an Americano, take a look at the awesome pour-over menu! Basically anything Comet makes is amazing.
