I enjoyed my cortado with almond milk. Free parking in back if there are spaces left. My mom got a latte. They also offer scones and donuts and croissants. We grabbed a chocolate scone and a blueberry lavendar scone.

Okay, what is it with the bakeries around Heritage Hill? How can this place called themselves the bakery and not offer BAGELS in the morning? I wish the owner would travel to any other major city outside of Grand Rapids ... Working people do not...More

I really enjoyed my pour over. I believe it was four dollars. My husband got a Macchiato and that was very good. Cute little place with all the new cold brew and other coffee options.

Between the very funky decor and the very excellent Rowster roasted coffees lie the personable and excellent baristas and plates of interesting and not found elsewhere baked goods. They do coffee and sweet snacks. No egg bites, no sandwiches - just coffee and hot chocolate...More

Rowster has incredible coffee with a crisp, clean, eclectic feel. Whether a pour over, latte or their amazingly creamy nitro, you are in good hands. The owners and those who work there are humble, fun and create an inviting atmosphere.

Service was great. We arrived only 20 minutes before close but were greeted and the nice gentleman took his time with us. Iced vanilla latte was great and the hot latte was delish. Please try the lemon polenta cake. U will be glad you did.
