Winter is upon us, and I can’t think of a better way to warm up than inside a cozy coffee shop! Grand Rapids is not only known for our craft beer, but also our homemade brews of coffee! With coffee houses in almost every GR neighborhood, your sure to find a great cup of Joe!

Check out these great coffee shops around Grand Rapids below!


Westside: Ferris Coffee & Nut Co. & The Bitter End
Hit up the Westside of GR and warm up at two amazing coffee shops. Ferris Coffee & Nut Co., a family owned and operated business, has been brewing coffee since 1924! They have also opened a second location in the historical Michigan Trust Building, right downtown GR. Another great option on the Westside is The Bitter End. If you’re a student living downtown, this eclectic coffeehouse is open 24/7 for all those late night cram sessions.

Their knowledge in coffee in combination with great service and an awesome atmosphere, you’re sure to be impressed. Just a hop, skip, and jump away is Lantern Bar & Lounge, another great coffee house who pride themselves on sourcing and serving only the best ingredients to their customers. What makes this place unique is the fact that they are committed to being waste free! Yes people, that’s right, WASTE FREE!
