Fourth-generation Detroiter Amanda Brewington first opened Always Brewing as a popup in November 2012, and established its permanent storefront in the Grandmont-Rosedale neighborhood in June of this year. In its first few months of operations, this coffee shop and community gathering place has been garnering a loyal following of families, students and young professionals.
Inside the cafe, an ornate ceiling is juxtaposed by simple lines and subdued colors at eye level. The seating area has lots of four top tables that can easily be pushed together for meetings or study sessions. Perusing the bookshelves is encouraged; they’re stacked with books and board games that can be borrowed while you enjoy your beverages.
Always Brewing offers a variety of coffee, tea, and espresso for every palate. The teas are loose leaf and the coffees fairtrade and organic, roasted locally by Chazzano Coffee in Ferndale. Your cup of joe can be assembled using french press, pour over, or even cold brew preparations. We recommend the pumpkin spice latte, which is bursting with all our favorite fall flavors.
The cafe also serves a signature line of handcrafted cool beverages that are tasty and refreshing any time of year. Try the raspberry mint spritzer or a strawberry basil lemonade, with real hunks of strawberry and and basil leaves in your cup. These refreshments are caffeine free and kid-friendly.
For a quick breakfast on the go, order one of the freshly baked muffins or morning breads. The apple cinnamon bread is our favorite, but the raisin bread and banana bread are also delicious. For lunch Always Brewing offers wraps, salads, parfaits, fruit cups, and granola. It’s tough to say no to the row of glass domes on the counter revealing a tempting array of cookies, brownies, cupcakes, cake pops, and other treats from Royal Oak’s Love & Buttercream and Detroit’s own Treats By Angelique.
While the java and pastries are delightful, Always brewing is much more than just a coffee shop. Intended to be a community gathering place, this is a spot where you can hang out and enjoy relaxed conversation with neighbors and friends. The cafe regularly hosts fun community events which encourage casual socializing and mingling. Stop by for open mic on Thursdays or join one of the bring-your-own board game nights, movie nights, and craft nights, all of which are family friendly.
