Family-owned and operated since 2012 in the heart of

Grand Rapids, MI

Go Java Coffee strives to offer a premium product to locals, while embracing the community spirit in the neighborhoods we serve.

We offer a fresh, handmade-to-order breakfast and lunch menu with REAL scrambled egg sandwiches and a rotating fresh fruit smoothie selection. We also have products from popular local establishments Nantucket Baking Company and Van's Pastry Shoppe on hand daily. We use Rowster Coffee for both our espresso and drip coffees. We have also just introduced Prospectors Nitro Cold Brew.

Our atmosphere is laid back, warm, and fun. The Go Java storefront is bright and open with floor to ceiling windows, exposed brick walls, old wood floors and comfortable seating, making a great place to study, meet up with a friend, or just sit at the counter and watch the world go by.

Introducing Studio 442

Studio 442 is what we at Go Java have affectionately started calling our backroom at the Bridge St. location. With aged brick, sprawling gallery walls, and easy access through our West Side coffee shop, we have too many ideas of what to do with this beautiful space - however, for now our focus has landed in three areas - small events, photography studio time, and local art showcase.

Small events

This is a perfect space for small events such as showers, rehearsal dinners, private meetings, or holiday parties up to 50 people.

Hourly Photography Studio

We would also like to open this space to photographers looking for hourly studio time. With different wall textures and colors, three different kinds of light, and privacy, there's something suited for every photoshoot. Hourly rate is $35, contact us to book!

Local Art events

Go Java has always offered local artists the opportunity to decorate our walls as guest curators. We’re happy to extend this further with special events showcasing local talent and craftsmanship. We’re hoping to do frequent artists markets and special guest features, so keep an eye on our social media outlets for details!
