Ultimate Guide to Coffee Houses 2021

Local Coffee Houses Serve as Charming Neighborhood Hubs

Local Coffee Houses

Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

There are many things to merit the Western Shores of Lake Erie. The lake itself, the amazing and rich culture, the food. We live in a great area.

Hidden beneath the museums, sports, universities, parks, camping, art and music is a high density of excellent local coffee houses and coffee roasters. These dedicated companies have been keeping us alert and comforted through work, play, study…even pandemics.

At RSL we have an affinity for coffee. Over the years we’ve covered National Coffee Day, visited all of our local coffee shops, and even participated in Coffee Quest 419! But we knew we couldn’t stop there, we had to take it up a notch. Below is our ultimate guide to the local coffee house culture of Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan in 2021. Although you probably have a neighborhood favorite, our guide was designed to make trying new options easy. So get out and enjoy a cup of joe. Everyone on our list is worth a visit!
