About the Owl

Our vision is community first. We want to have a place for friends to meet, we want to be your stop between home and work, where you are welcomed with a smile and a taste of something delicious. With a strong community we have been able to feature the best quality beverages: coffee that is exclusively organic, shade grown, carbon free, and fairtrade. We also feature some of Michigan’s finest craft beers and ciders.

We are all about making real connections and growing our community. We are always hosting events for a wide range of interests. Morning we invite friends, groups, clubs, work teams & politicians to speak in small groups, if not weekly, monthly. Our afternoons are enjoyed by professionals & students hard at work. Finally, our evenings are enjoyed more often with a craft beverage in hand, a place to laugh and live life in a welcome community.

New events all the time

We love to open up our doors for all kinds of activities. We wish for people to be able to be creative and we invite our community to come out and use our space for just that. New events or old favorite pastimes are happening all the time; from monthly beer yoga, cocktails & food trucks, to seasonal art fairs, game nights and tap brewery takeovers, to even simple work meetings, we want to have a space for the community.

Words From Our Customers

We love our customers and our customers love us

Jackie Janel Bedore


Friendly staff, great coffee with a great variety to choose from, beautiful cozy environment with delicious baked goods. You can get a french press full of coffee, a giant muffin and relax and catch up with a friend for a couple hours, easy.

Just recently moved to Milan and stumbled across this hidden gem! It's a great place to relax, or get some work done, or for just grabbing coffee with a friend. The staff is super nice and the coffee is fantastic.

Great coffee, wonderful atmosphere, bringing downtown Milan back with artistically brewed coffee.
