Royal Oak's Office Coffee Shop offers an alternative to the traditional work space


  • Via Facebook
Everyone knows it can be a chore to hunker down at work, particularly during the summer months when long lunches and early happy hours beckon us away from our desks. But one local coffee shop a solution: A work space away from work.

The Office Coffee Shop, located at 402 South Lafayette Ave in Royal Oak, will soon provide locals with all the benefits of a work environment without actually being in the office. Here, folks will find a shared work space as well as private offices, a conference room, copy machines, printers, scanners, high speed Internet, oh, and plenty of caffeine.

Michael and Brooke Keith, the husband/wife duo who co-own the operation, say the Office Coffee Shop is also a great place to network with professionals from all industries. What's more, shop-goers can feel good about time spent at the site as five percent of every Office Coffee Shop purchase goes directly to charity.

The pair hopes to get the shop up and running for the public within the next week. Until then, head over to Click on Detroit for additional information and give The Office Coffee Shop a good old fashioned "Like" on Facebook.
