Midtown Coffee Shop Shuts Down For Good

New, 21 comments

Biggby Coffee in Midtown has unexpectedly kicked the bucket, leaving behind a woeful goodbye note and an empty storefront. Blaming "economic situations beyond our control," the coffee shop could've been doomed by rising rent at the ever-pricy Studio One building (once deemed Detroit's most expensive per square foot), or the simple fact that Midtown now has a slew of coffee options.

Biggby opened in 2010, meaning it predates most just about every Midtown coffee joint currently in operation (aside from Starbucks). Don't expect the storefront to stay empty very long.
