Factory Coffee to Take Over In-Store Cafe at Kalamazoo’s Bookbug
A favorite, local bookstore has announced a switch-up for their in-store cafe.
This is a Bookstore & Bookbug, on Oakland Drive in Kalamazoo, operates as you would expect a bookstore to operate. They have a huge selection of genres, bookmarks & trinkets, and journals. They even have a separate store just for the kids.
However, one thing that makes Bookbug unique is its in-store cafe, Table of Contents, which offers coffee, treats, and more. It really gave that Barnes and Noble feeling with the added bonus of supporting a locally owned store.
Well, in a recent Instagram post, they announced that there's a new cafe moving in.
Factory Coffee, which has been a long-time supplier, will now be taking over the cafe full-time:
Reactions from locals were mixed with a few comments reading:
Aw, honestly really mostly sad about the name change haha. It was much more creative and unique. I hope they don't make many changes- almost none are needed. - Reinakam
This is so exciting! I hope I still get to see the same awesome baristas and gluten free menus items but am HERE for this collaboration! - RachelSkyeReads
Hope the cocktails from TOC will remain, and the bagels from FC will be coming along. - Auntamyswears
