Really cool, upmarket coffee and cake. Great place to relax and catch up with emails, meet with friends etc. Good choice of coffees, cakes and snacks. Pleasant background music- not too loud so that you can chat easily. Good coffee too!

My wife really loves the coffee here! I've had the hot chocolate and enjoyed it. It's a bit cramped inside and people tend to linger by the door while waiting for their drinks but it's a good option.

Sweetwater's is always a nice place to meet up with friends and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, and maybe something sweet. It's good to support local businesses as much as possible, and all their Ann Arbor locations are pleasant.
