The Common Cup

Serving the Student Community

We come together serving you a great coffee and a space to gather. From a hello at the register to enjoying a hand crafted beverage, we hope The Common Cup will feel like a home away from home.

Whether you are stopping in briefly or settling in to study for hours, we're glad you're here.

Who We Are

Crafting Great Experiences

Our mission is to create an excellent experience for each customer and we believe you deserve our best. While each item we serve has been prepared with care and patience, the ingredients play a major role in the final product.

We source our ingredients from local businesses providing high quality coffee, tea, and milk.

About the Artist: My professional photography career started when my kids insisted I get a “real” camera before a 2004 trip to the Grand Canyon. Since then I have enjoyed a growing photography career, learning through workshops and online courses, and sharing what I am learning with others. I focus on nature, travel, and editorial stock photography. Recently my photographs have been selected for Ann Arbor Women Artist (AAWA) juried shows, and for nonjuried exhibits at the Sweetwaters café on Liberty, and on Washington Street in 2017. "Paris Locks" was selected for the 25th Annual Canton Fine Arts Exhibition at the Village Theater in Canton, MI in October. I was delighted that Michelle offered me the opportunity for this solo exhibition and appreciate the opportunity to get to know this coffeehouse better. I first heard of The Common Cup years ago from barista Keegan, one of the warmest people ever. The warmth extends to your customers, such as Kar, who volunteered to assist me when I came to measure the length of the walls in preparation for this exhibit . I feel privileged to be able to display my photographs at this gem of a coffeehouse. I hope you enjoy these photographs, and best wishes on your photography adventures.
