Sometimes it seems like you can get a cup of coffee almost anywhere. But what about when you want a caffeine fix from a cool, quirky local joint? Here's our picks for the best cups of coffee near Olivet College.

Willowtree Coffee and Bakery - Olivet

Just a stone's throw from campus, the Willowtree is one of the best known hangouts in Olivet. The shop is known for a great cup of coffee and delectable food. If you want to study and have your caffeine, this is the place to go off campus.

Books & More - Albion

This place just exudes hip and cool. Grab something to read, like real paper - leave your Kindle at home - and enjoy something from Books & More's full espresso bar. Yelp user Theresa O. says

Very cute little coffee shop mostly book store, reminds me of my mom's thrift shop except with books and games

Serendipity - Marshall

Not only does this quaint little place have amazing coffee for sale, but they have many unique gifts and Mother's Day is right around the corner. I picked this place because when I was younger my mom would take me there to buy her coffee and I remember how wonderful it all smelled.

Brownstone Coffeehouse - Battle Creek

Brownstone is great for getting together with your friends and having a cup of coffee or 3. It's right in the heart of downtown Battle Creek so it's perfect for students or business people that love the "city feel".

Water Street Coffee Joint - Kalamazoo

This coffee hot spot not only has amazing coffee but they have cakes for Mother's day and other delicious foods all year long. This place has been a staple in the Kalamazoo area since 1993 and is still going strong! So if you're looking for that hip local venue to get your caffeine fix on, Water Street Coffee Joint is the place to be.

These are just the 5 places I picked because I used to drive back and forth from Kalamazoo to Olivet College for school. Please feel free to add your favorites in the comments below, and happy caffeine hunting!
