Hey there, we're Respite.
We take pride in the product we produce and are excited to serve everyone who comes through our doors. We strive to create a welcoming environment that builds community, encourages creativity and fosters collaboration. It’s all about the little moments when life happens and coffee helps.
Located in Douglas, Michigan. Right by the Lakeshore.
Drink coffee, spread love. Every sip of Respite coffee evokes a memory effecting ones well being and happiness.
For our beans, we collaborate with Ferris Coffee's certified Q-grader trained to pinpoint desirable characteristics when sourcing from farmers all over the world and roasting locally. Our Barista's are educated and have a love for people.
Come enjoy our fresh baked pastries, (we won 2 of the 4 Blue Ribbon's from Savor the Coast in 2015!) organic teas, and relaxing vibes—and remember to take a bag of Respite beans home with you!
Thanks for coming you guys
(you all y'all - we don't discriminate)!
Our menu is made from scratch everyday especially for you. We curate partner with DeBoer Bakery for your bread, Big Apple for your bagel, and we use Antibiotic free meats for your sandwiches.
At Respite, you can always look forward to a homemade meal whether you are a sustainable carnivore, vegetarian or vegan
