Detroit: Great Lakes Coffee

Although Detroit has suffered in the last few years, the former industrial town has retained its creative ability to turn abandoned buildings into writing spaces and art studios. Leave it to a coffee-lover to take advantage of the cheap real estate and set up shop to reenergize city dwellers with some decent coffee. Great Lakes offers iterations of classic coffee drinks, such as the ‘Lavender Latte,' which is heady and aromatic, but still chock full of caffeine. Located downtown, Great Lakes is perfect for a lazy Sunday perusing the paper or a quick pick-me-up on the way to work.
