Served quickly and with a smile, got to use my free drink too! Make sure you get a 12 drink punch card!

This place has consistently great drinks! Perhaps the most universally distinctive is the Hot Mocha Mocha. It is a sweet latte with chocolate syrup and whipped cream. What makes it distinctive is that it is somewhat less sweet that what you usually get, and the chocolate is more of a dark chocolate rather than a mild milk chocolate. My wife and I have enjoyed these drinks for years. Beware the blended cold mocha, which is based largely on powdered mix and has a considerably weaker taste. If you want it cold, ask for a regular mocha over ice cubes. This is a nice place to spend time, but there are some tradeoffs. Local high school students come here with laptop computers, and it is possible to have no available place to sit because every table is occupied by at least one young person using their laptop. The background music is often too loud to be in the background, and there are no effective sun shades to shield you from late afternoon sun. The baristas are consistently pleasant, and you can depend on the brewed French roast coffee, which goes very well with sugar and half and half.

Staff at this Biggby's is always cheerful and friendly. They offer one "stamp" even if you buy on a bogo coupon. Other Okemos Biggby's does not, chintzy move in my opinion. The recent election found me working in an East Lansing precinct. One of the captains was the owner/founder's wife. She is a 110% swell person, and her husband is also a fine man. More personable than Starbuck's , among other coffee places. Shop here.

This place is now known at Biggby's Coffee, evidently they want to expand their markets and were concerned about the original name being misinterpreted. Walking into a Biggby's and taking a deep whiff will tell you immediately about this place's coffee. If there were a SB and a Biggby's right next to each other, Biggby's would get my business every time.
