Global coffee & tea

May 21, 2019

 

 

Globally inspired menu with Asian and European influences? Check. Supporter of local non-profits and schools? Check. Uses local bakeries for their food menu? Check that too. The newest location of Sweetwaters Coffee and Tea will have all of those things at 774 W. Big Beaver Road, Troy, when they open June 14. That entire week will have giveaways, like free drinks. “All there is in the community is Starbucks or Tim Horton’s,” said Stephanie Beck, franchisee owner. “We don’t really have a local, upscale coffee shop.” Sweetwaters plans to fill that void with their unique drinks, like their Ginger Lemon Tea, Dragon Eye, and French Vietnamese au Lait. As far as food goes there will be pastries, sandwiches, and salads, among others. Beck said they are currently looking into local bakeries to use, including Troy’s Ridley’s Bakery Cafe. There are also plans to have events during the week, like game nights and live bands, and walls will showcase work by local artists.
