Small Town Summers in Kalamazoo, MI: Caffe Casa

Caffe Casa is a quaint, little café in downtown Kalamazoo that offers an array of gourmet espresso drinks, teas, fresh baked pastries, cookies and bagels. Or if you’re craving something savory, they also have a great selection of hearty homemade soups, sandwiches and wraps, vegetarian offerings, and custom salads with a selection of homegrown seasonal organic greens.

Sounds delicious, right?!

The café is owned by John and Kathy Beebe, and it’s been in business since 1992. John is known for working the espresso machine and having an impressive collection of plants. Kathy is very talented in the kitchen, and is famous for her delectable baked goods.

This café is one of Kalamazoo’s many gems that I discovered this past weekend, and it’s definitely one of my new favorite places to grab a cup of chai tea, or to just sit and read on a quiet summer afternoon. I love the aesthetic and the rustic vibes of the café from the plants, to the artwork that decorates the walls that are made by local artists.
