Detroit Sip Coffee Shop Serves Local Product in 'a Calm Atmosphere'

Owner Jevona Watson says you need not go downtown for a great cup of joe.

When Jevona Watson was studying for the Michigan State University bar exam in a coffee shop in East Lansing, her thoughts drifted – to coffee. She remembered being a little girl shopping at the A&P with her parents, who were avid java drinkers. Watson's dream of becoming an attorney was realized in 2004, but her other dream, of opening a coffee shop, happened in 2017.

Detroit Sip, situated in the Bagley neighborhood, serves the University of Detroit, Marygrove College and surrounding area. Watson, a lifelong Detroiter, wanted a shop offering Detroit-based products like Germack and ASHE Supply Co. coffee, INTU Tea and Dutch Girl Donuts – that would also contribute to the community. Detroit, she says, is more than just downtown or the skyline; there are good things happening in the neighborhoods. And coffee's one of them. She adds, "The coffee shop is a calm atmosphere."

Detroit Sip • 7420 W. McNichols Road

6:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday-Friday,
