Four friends, some of whom had not seen each other for over twenty years, spent a very pleasant couple of hours in this stylish, friendly, super clean, cafe. We didn't eat as we'd come from lunch elsewhere but the tea was awesome (I'm British so I'm qualified to make that call) and the atmosphere was relaxed and calm. Strangers got... More

Stopped here with my mom after dinner in Downtown Ann Arbor for a dose of caffeine. We both had the Crème Caramel (size - triple) made with almond milk. We also picked up a nice loaf of bread that caught our eyes to take home. The Crème Caramel is a heavenly combination of smooth vanilla and caramel with fresh whipped... More

Heard they had good chicken wings and they do! I like wing that are drier an these were perfect and not too dry. One employee told us Bill Clinton had stopped in a few weeks before to get the wings to go.

Sweetwater's is always a nice place to meet up with friends and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, and maybe something sweet. It's good to support local businesses as much as possible, and all their Ann Arbor locations are pleasant.

Whenever I'm in town, I find time to have a morning coffee at Sweetwater: the coffee is strong, the setting is conducive to getting ready for the day.

My wife and I enjoy sweetwater very much. Almost every time we are in town we stop in for a coffee and sweet. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, often very busy. The staff is friendly, but not too friendly and bothering you while you're resting. The coffees are amazing and the muffins, brownies, and Danish are wonderful. This will... More
