Last year we learned that Michigan-based Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea would coming to downtown Walnut Creek in the new Lyric apartment complex and they have now opened. There’s seating both inside and out with a cool bear mural on one inside wall (see photo after the jump.) In addition to typical hot and cold coffee and tea they also offer a frozen slushie-esque drink with different flavors called the Ice Dragon. They even sell coffee beans, bakery items, salads, and even pup cups (for dogs). Check out their Walnut Creek menu here.

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!
Wei and Lisa Bee founded the first Sweetwaters in 1993 in downtown Ann Arbor near their alma mater, The University of Michigan.

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.
