“great coffee, great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

A cute little coffee shop in the middle of Nickel's Arcade. My husband and I went in and were immediately greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff!

I ordered a cafe mocha and my husband ordered a latte. Our drinks were great! You can tell the quality of the coffee is one of the best. The cafe mocha had a bit of a tangy/fruity after taste and a great balance between chocolate and espresso flavours. It was so delicious it made me crave more.

The atmopshere of the cafe is very relaxed. There is limited seating but it is still a very nice and clean place to go to. Love the coffee. Would definitely go here again!

“¡Delicioso!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Ridiculously fresh and delicious hand-made coffee. Plus, easily the best shot of espresso in Ann Arbor. I don't know how the triple caramel-vanilla soy frapachino with extra whipped cream tastes.

“Hand-crafted Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

While those in the know know Comet has the best coffee, what it also has is expert staff with excellent service. Late in a Spring Break afternoon, went in to the Nickels Arcade coffeehouse find a coffee grinder. The clerk clearly provided the pro's and con's of the options available, complete with anecdotes on her camping pleasures with the grinder we eventually purchased. We're quite happy with our purchase as it does the job right.

“Mocha didn't taste like it had Chocolate in it...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We had a party of four and ordered 2 lattes and 2 mochas. My mocha was oddly smokey and tasted overly bitter. I had to add a ton of sugar to be even able to consume it. It also had no chocolate flavor, and the other mocha at the table did. For four dollars a pop, I expect some damn good coffee. I was very disappointed. The only good thing about the place was a decent atmosphere.

“Outstanding coffee, no seats available”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

I have sipped coffee in places throughout the world known for their coffee, but Comet is among the very best. The coffee is individually made and outstanding. If based just on coffee alone, I would give Comet five stars. However, the place is small, very crowded and the air is stuffy. There are only about eight seats, which are usually occupied by people who camp out with their laptops. And there are no parks, benches, places to sit anywhere near Comet. It would be so nice to have a place to sit and truly enjoy drink Comet coffee instead of walking around with it.
