After an early 8 a.m. class
or a long day of homework and
exams, Espresso Royale pro-
vides a much-needed solace with
its cushy chairs, soothing music
and hot coffee and tea.
Its ability to create an invit-
ing and homey environment has
earned Espresso Royale a warm
place in the hearts of the Ann

Arbor community. Conveniently
situated on both State Street and
South University, the coffee shop
is never more than a short walk
away. The baristas are always
friendly and quick to help. The
service is very efficient and you
may have coffee in your hands
almost as soon as you order it.
The menu offers a large repre-

sentation of delicious coffees
and tea. The shop also offers a
variety of warm baked goods and
sandwiches that make it easy to
grab a quick lunch when on the
go.
Royale's many chairs, tables
and couches make the shop per-
fect for afternoon study group
meetings, cramming for an

exam or just leisurely reading
and book and sipping coffee on
a couch. Whether providing stu-
dents with a place to escape from
the cold winters or unwind after
an exam, Espresso Royale pro-
vides Ann Arbor with a unique
local coffee shop that caters to
its student's needs.

Where I grew up, we didn't have
Bruegger's Bagels. So unlike many
of my peers who grew up with a
Bruegger's on every other corner,
when I came to the University, the
restaurant was an entirely new
concept to me. Tucked into a small
storefront on North University,
the chain is unassuming among
the more exotic cultural findings
Ann Arbor has to offer. Hiding

behind Bruegger's simple fagade,
however, lies the best selection of
warm, dense, cream-cheese-laden
bagels in Ann Arbor.
Possibly the greatest joy of
my childhood was the few times
every year my babysitter would
take me to Krispy Kreme. (Simple
pleasures, I guess?) I was surpris-
ingly indifferent to the donuts, but
fascinated with looking through

the glass windows at the perfect
machinated conveyor belt spitting
out donut after donut.
Walking into Bruegger's for the
first time you get the same visual
experience; as you order your
bagel from choices including the
savory asiago parmesan, decadent
chocolate chip and traditional
everything, you can watch soon-
to-be-bagel dough floating to the

top of a giant metal bagel-maker
- a magical collision of food and
science.
Though simple, Bruegger's sup-
plies classically delicious New
York style bagels with a nostalgic
view of the way they are made.
At just $3 a bagel, it's hard to not
appreciate this fast and functional
meal.
