Cup of joe for good
In December, Beaumont Hospital’s Woodward Corners gained New Order Coffee Roasters at 30955 Woodward Avenue, Royal Oak. This is the first suburban location for the cafe, which is also in midtown Detroit. CEO Elizabeth Rose is excited about not only the opening but their collaboration with the “Arts RX” program to display artwork created by pediatric patients on coffee mugs. Said mugs will be available for purchase, and all proceeds go to the Children’s Miracle Network. “I’m really excited about this because you never know what this is going to look like,” Rose said. “But so far, the mugs are just adorable.” Guests can expect New Order’s signature drinks, like M&M mochas and cereal milks, and a new drink – a cherry blossom white mocha coming in the next few months. New to the Royal Oak location is the Waffleshot Macchiato. There are plans to expand their slate of cold beverages this summer, adding housemade cold brew and tea-infused ice creams to drinks, and they are working towards launching a warm breakfast menu this year to add to their food selections.
