I'm currently in Thailand and waterstreet coffee was the first thing on my list for my dad to bring when he visited. Amazing coffee and a cute shop to hang out in. It'll be one of my first stops when I get back to Kalamazoo!

Water Street is one of my favorite places for coffee in Kalamazoo. Nice outside eating area when the weather's good. Lots of art inside. Can get a little crowded. Deli selections are fantastic. Not cheap, but worth the price.
