Awesome lattes

I had a latte that was probably one of the best ever. The shop is located in Nichols arcade and is very small, without much seating room.

They have very good coffee and a nice looking interior (though small) that invites you to sit down and watch window shoppers in Nickels Arcade. Very nice people serving the coffee.

While the inside seating is tight, there's plenty of room outside in the covered Arcade. We loved the coffee and chocolate croissants while people watching. No complaints - definitely recommended.

Love this place. Great coffee with an added personal touch. I love the atmosphere inside and better yet the outside tables in the Nickels Arcade. Stop by and have a seat!

I love good coffee and don't mind spending a little more to get a really good cup. Comet Coffee lives up to its reputation for quality, handcrafted coffee. Pourover does not guarantee you a good cup of coffee. in many ways, it is easier to make a bad cup of coffee by hand than by machine. I've been disappointed many... More

Great location - a bit cramped- but quaint. Very knowledgeable staff, super ambience, the haunting aroma of brewing coffee, and a wonderful range of speciality coffees

We were sent here by our hotel when we needed a quick place for breakfast en route from there to our University of Michigan tour (I had requested something local as opposed to the obvious chain). Fab coffee and really terrific pastries (I had an insanely good almond croissant) I loved it's location in the Nickels Arcade, a beautifully restored... More

It tastes fancy and I'm not necessarily sure if that's a good thing or not. It tastes overpriced. I got a "large" hot chocolate - which is smaller than a tall anywhere else, and a lemon ginger scone. The hot chocolate was luke warm and a little bitter. I like bitter chocolate though, so that aspect was okay. Still not... More

Some of the best coffee I have ever had, and such a wonderful experience! The coffee here isn't brewed- it is crafted. The staff is truly passionate about the product, and it shows in both the service they provide and the product they offer. The prices are a little high, but this isn't your run of the mill coffee shop... More

If you are tired of Starbucks or Espresso Royale type of coffee you should definitely visit Comet Coffee. Their mocha is a true masterpiece, which is perfectly complimented by their delicious almond croissants. While coffee is more expensive than in other places, it has very peculiar taste which makes this place a must visit for coffee lovers.
