I have visited Brewed Awakenings several times and always pleased with experience. They have some nice food options and the coffee and tea very good. Ambience is nice too and it is centrally located. Good place.

Awesome coffee and surprisingly good food. The atmosphere is nice and enjoyed talking to the new owners. Definitely a gem in the heart of Grand Rapids. A great stop if you want a healthy meal and a good cup of coffee.

Don't go to Grand Rapids, Minnesota, without stopping here. Great food, friendly service. Their vegetarian soups change regularly and all are scrumptious. Relax in non-rush environment. Suitable for single, couples, family. Frequented by locals and travellers in the know!
