This charming little shop in downtown Flushing makes a wonderful place to enjoy a very good cup of coffee either by yourself or with friends/family. They are adjoined to the Rye Bakery next door so you can enjoy some yummy treats with your drinks as well. Love the bay window seating area that overlooks Main Street. The barista we had... More

I love going to our local coffee shop and having a great cup of coffee. I love to sit and enjoy this wonderfully charming coffee shop. Terrific service too. I make it a point to go at least once a week.

Saturday, Dec 6th, 2014 after a long, chilly walk I stop in for a yummy hot coffee. Can't hardly wait! I was the only customer upon arrival. I give the elbow room two thumbs up for ambience, but VERY disappointed when I paid $3.55 for a small hazelnut cappuccino and get a 12 oz cup not even half full. I... More

Very nice coffee ship, great atmosphere, good coffee and the bakery next door (inside). Great place to just grab a coffee and run or sit and chat, check emails with the free wifi or just relax.

I lived in Flushing about 6 years ago. I spent many mornings at the Elbow Room - reading the newspaper, drinking coffee, surfing the web, and enjoying scones from the bakery. I miss this place. This is how a coffee shop should be -- great decor, a patio for sitting in the sun, good coffee, good music, a lively crowd,... More

I could not believe this "gem" of a find. The old woodwork is amazing. The bakery was closed for the evening but before I go back to Virginia I will make sure to stop again to pick up a sweet treat. Samantha was just the greatest!! If you're in the area make this a "must stop".

Stopped in for a triple espresso on my way through flushing, what a find. The building is close to a century old I'm sure and has the character to show for it. Attached to a bakery in the heart of downtown, the Elbow Room serves as one of mid Michigans best hometown coffee shops. Live music available most weekends. Step... More
