Whether your philosophy is "don't talk to me until I've had my coffee," or "I need a beer," Water Street Coffee has you covered as 2 of their joints now serve beer, wine and liquor.

When the question is "How many shots?" keep in mind your barista just became your bartender at Water Street Coffee. The Oakland Drive location is the second joint to add beer, wine and liquor to the drink menu. Owner Mark Smutek told MLive,

When the studying and work has ended for the day, we want our customers to be able to sit back, relax, and catch up with friends. What better way than with a refreshing cocktail, smooth glass of wine, or cool local beer?

 

The Portage location on Centre Ave. began serving alcohol last Summer and management hopes to be pouring more than coffee and tea at the downtown location by early 2019. So whether it's homework or happy hour, if you want a black coffee or a black Russian, just say "give me a brew" and ask that they leave some room for cream...or vodka.
