The Downtown Café is our original location that opened in 1993 on the corner of Kalamazoo Ave. and Water St. in Kalamazoo, MI. The building dates back to 1934, originally housing Triangle Gasoline and Service station; the oil change pit is where our current dining area resides. When the studying and work is done, sit back and enjoy a craft cocktail or refreshing local beer.
In the heart of the hustle and bustle.
Come to the center of downtown to enjoy our cozy indoor seating lit by a wall of floor to ceiling windows, decorated with our signature sunburst lights and frequently updated local artwork. Our popular outdoor patio seating has shaded and sunny options and is dog-friendly.
