Really cool, upmarket coffee and cake. Great place to relax and catch up with emails, meet with friends etc. Good choice of coffees, cakes and snacks. Pleasant background music- not too loud so that you can chat easily. Good coffee too!

My wife really loves the coffee here! I've had the hot chocolate and enjoyed it. It's a bit cramped inside and people tend to linger by the door while waiting for their drinks but it's a good option.

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.
