Finest Products

The Sparrows places great effort into finding and serving the best coffee and tea available. We were the first location to serve MadCap Coffee, and now we continually feature three-month guest roasters including Four Barrel, Counter Culture, AnthologyHeart Roasters, and Ritual Roasters.

Our tea is carefully selected from our midwestern partners. Arbor Teas, Spirit Tea, and Mountain Rose Botanicals offer us a wide variety of teas including black, oolong, green, white, herbal, and red teas. Our pastry selection is local and fresh everyday, featuring GR Bagel, Field & Fire Bakery, Wednesday Evening Cookies, and Sweet Batches.

We also serve raw cold-pressed juices each day including all organic fruits and vegetables. Flavors include 55 Zebra, Root Down, and Dare You. Come find out what they are!


Tools for Creation

Your trip to The Sparrows could vary from completing your homework, finishing a major work project, hosting a meeting, sketching your latest, or beginning your first novel. It is our goal to provide you with the proper resources to allow your brilliance to shine.

Each day we sell newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Grand Rapids Press, while also carrying periodicals like Dwell, Good, Kinfolk, and Mental Floss. With all of this input, you are guaranteed to find another brilliant idea at the bottom of your next cup of coffee.



Unique Space

Located in a historic hardware store originally built in the early 1900s, The Sparrows always tries to maintain its roots. But for the past nine years, we've been serving our loyal customers on one of the quickest growing streets in all of Grand Rapids.

The Sparrows provides plenty of space to seclude yourself, catch up with old friends, or propose to your love in our armchairs by the front windows (yeah, it happened...). After all, as one of our customers once told us, "The Sparrows makes me feel like I'm cuddling up in a cafe to read my favorite book on a rainy day in Paris."
