Ann Arbor, like every other quintessential college town, has an abundance of coffee shops. From the well-known chains like Starbucks to more local varieties, choosing the right coffee shop to study at or catch up with friends can be a daunting task. As someone who usually frequents the same coffee shop on campus, I wanted to branch out and explore what makes each shop on campus unique. Additionally, I wanted to capture their ambience and explore why students pick one over the other. From Mighty Good Coffee on South University and Washtenaw to Lab on East Liberty, each offers a unique take on serving coffee. While students in each had their own opinions, LSA sophomore Sharon Szabo at Espresso Royale on State Street put it best saying, “Coffee is coffee...it’s really about where you can find a table!”
