Undergrads, graduate students, and professionals alike use this space to study, meet, work, and relax. Whether you are stopping in briefly or settling in to study for hours, we're glad you're here.

Who We Are

We have a huge transient community and understand it's hard to show support and love from afar. We now offer eGift Cards to help with this. This is all done through Square Register and is emailed immediately upon purchase.

Crafting Great Experiences

We aim 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.

Art on Display: Claudia Burns

Claudia is a former art teacher, first at St. Thomas Catholic School (K-8) then at a variety of Ann Arbor Public Schools, mostly with high school students. "As a teacher I had to be competent in a variety of media. Eventually I decided to devote myself to painting and forms of art that serve beautify the church." Her icons and mosaic work grace the walls of Christ the King Catholic Church in Ann Arbor. She loves plein air work, and paintings that start outside and end in the studio. This year she switched from acrylics to oils, a larger format and a more detailed style. Drawings in oil and soft pastel are shown here.
