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.

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.

Art on Display: Joe LaVigne

The work exhibited for November and December are pieces created in the past nine months.

The pen on paper are selected pieces from my participation in Inktober. These are my most recent works. Inktober is a month long challenge lasting the duration of October during which the artist is challenged to sketch or draw one ink piece a day. The challenge encourages each artist to cultivate healthy, daily sketching and drawing habits. These pieces are observations in coffeeshops, on The University of Michigan campus, and whatever happens to be placed on the table in front of me.

The remainder of the exhibited pieces are works in oil pastel on paper or canvas. The pieces referencing nature scenes were accomplished in the en plein air tradition, completed on location.

Joe is a recent graduate from the University of Michigan and has a renewed focus on his art. His work can also be seen on the sidewalks and windows at certain times of year and was recently on display in Ypsilanti's First Friday event in August. Meet Joe on December 2nd at The Common Cup's Holiday Makers' Market from 10-4pm
