Coffee & Breakfast @ Grand River Cafe

The Grand River Cafe is one of my favorite places in East Lansing. I love their lattes, their food (and gelato!), the staff, the background noise of their cute waterfall feature, and the overall laid-back atmosphere... I could go on, but I'll stop there!

So... Let's meet up at GR Cafe and drink some coffee/tea, eat some breakfast together, and enjoy the company. This is a small place and it can get VERY busy, so even though I love their lunch food (so come back sometime on your own!), we are going to meet earlier in the morning so that they can accommodate more of us. They will set aside some tables for us. 

Parking: If their main parking lot is full, feel free to park in the neighborhood. Rosewood is the road that runs right into the Cafe, so you could try that road or Hillcrest, which is just a street over.

Here is their website:

Here are some reviews: 

Also: this is a wonderful place to work, read, or just relax. I plan to stick around after the event itself and get some work done, so if you'd like to do the same bring your laptop or reading supplies along and join me!

    Just an fyi about the food here- I should have been more clear about what I meant by "breakfast." They have breakfast sandwiches, bagels, a few types of pastries, etc. I'd highly recommend the jalepeno cheddar bagel. :)

      And gelato. Totally acceptable breakfast food, right? :)

    I tore my meniscus in my knee and had surgery last week. I missed the taco event last week. I don't know if I'll make it to this one or not.

    Just an fyi that I have touched base with one of the owners, Ellen, and they know that we are coming! They will set some tables aside for us so that we can hopefully all sit together.

      It will be my second event, but I only met around 8 people in the first event. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone also!

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have to bow out so I can spend the morning preparing for the Food Swap which happens to be the same day.

      I changed the date for this Jerome so that people could go to both! :)
