Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea Opening at Lyric in Downtown Walnut Creek

Lyric, Walnut Creek

Michigan-based Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea is opening their first California location right in downtown Walnut Creek at the new Lyric complex on Bonanza St, a couple of stores down from Drybar, which opened recently. Check out their menu here. They feature a variety of coffees and teas such as French Vietnamese Au Lait and Cocoa Cappuccino and teas like Winter Blossom and Japanese Sencha. They also offer frozen drinks, shakes and pastries, desserts as well as lighter fare such as quiche, sandwiches and salads. Interestingly, it looks like the boba craze must have not hit Michigan as I don’t see any mention of boba drinks!

From their website:

Wei and Lisa Bee founded the first Sweetwaters in 1993 in downtown Ann Arbor near their alma mater, The University of Michigan. Inspired by their love of food and drink and driven by their creativity, Sweetwaters was conceived and brought to life. The marvelous result: a coffeehouse that celebrates classic café fare alongside globally influenced coffees and teas in an environment that is both classic and friendly—just like Wei and Lisa.

    Every new development needs one. Alerts go out that a new high end development with retail below is being built. All the chain coffee shops take a look, get the marketing glossy and think they’ve hit paydirt.

    Can there be a more generic storefront than this one? Walnut creek is getting SO GENERIC! Every new building going up (and I’m including YOU, Broadway Plaza and every new building downtown) has no sense of place–they could be anywhere in the U.S. And one of the few buildings that has history and charm, the Vic Stewart’s old railroad depot, is being razed for more generic-looking retail. Walnut Creek is losing its soul thanks to all this boring, poorly-thought-out development
