Morningside Cafe is your local community coffee and entertainment cafe that will be located in Detroit’s Morningside neighborhood! Every product that we offer, from our coffee to our baked goods will be locally sourced. Our concept is a little different than what you have experienced at other coffee shops. The aspects of community and entertainment are both important concepts of our business model. Morningside Cafe will offer the entertainment likes of open mic nights, art exhibits, and live musical performances showcasing the talented collection of Detroit’s rhythm and blues, and jazz acts. We will also have a dedicated community space to host meetings and workshops that will focus on a variety of important topics that will assist in changing the narrative of our neighborhoods throughout the city of Detroit.
The opportunity to compete in the 2019 Comerica Hatch Detroit competition is truly an opportunity of a lifetime! When you make the decision to launch a new business, you search tirelessly for any and everything that will help make your business successful, so when the chance came along to compete in this contest, the decision was simple as night and day. The city of Detroit have some amazing businesses that are on the rise and much of that success can be directly attributed to the Hatch contest. We hope voters support our concept because we are bringing something that is both fresh and unique to the city of Detroit and the region of Southeastern Michigan. Everything from our business model, to the look of our space will be something that has not been experienced before. With that being said, we are honored to be a part of this amazing program and we look forward to creating a destination for all to patronize and experience!
