#94 - Espresso Royale

You can't throw a latte two feet in Ann Arbor without it hitting a coffee shop. And when you do, its more than likely the coffee shop you hit will be Espresso Royale. Despite the fact it's a chain, with locations in seven states, Espresso Royale somehow manages to retain that local feel that allows so many students to call it home when the books become more important than the weather. I spent more time than I care to think about hopped up on espresso, trying to to cram two months worth of studying into a weekend at their South U location. But I also spent plenty of summer days with my feet on an extra chair sipping a cup of coffee, sitting in the July sun and reading a newspaper. Whether studying or, inversely, watching the day slowly drift by at an outside table, Espresso Royale is #94 on our Countdown.

If you've got suggestions on places you'd like to see, email me with a photo or a description and we'll get your favorite hangouts in the countdown as well.
