Grab a cup of Squibb coffee and stay awhile–the vibe is great. Custom cakes and sweets available to order.
Brewery Nyx (506 Oakland Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503)
The first and only gluten-free brewery in Michigan is right here in Grand Rapids. I love getting a flight so I can try a little bit of everything.
Grab a 4-pack from the cooler to enjoy later. My friends who can have gluten thought everything was great, too!
