Coffee Shop
“Ferris Cofffee - Holland, formerly known as JP's Coffee & Espresso Bar, is located in the heart of Holland, MI on 8th street. In 2014, JP's Coffee became a part of the Ferris family! In the Spring of 2018, the shop was renovated and re-opened as Ferris Coffee - Holland. We wanted to modernize the space and create a lively atmosphere where anyone could enjoy world-class coffee from a friendly, hospitable staff. In our newly renovated space, our trained baristas serve up espresso beverages, pour over coffee by the cup from the Pour Steady, drinks on tap (including Ferris Nitro Cold Brew), drinking chocolate, and variety of other signature drinks! Whether you're looking to get work done, relaxing with your family, or meeting a friend, our Holland shop is the place to go. ”

Bakery
“If you desire a quick lunch and a really delicious item from the bakery for dessert this place is perfect! New, clean and very quick and friendly service! Ryke's has been a family owned business in Muskegon for sixty years and now they have opened in Grand Haven. Perfect for picking up a sandwich to take to the beach! I highly recommend the chicken salad wrap. They are best known for their butter frosting and believe it or not you can buy that in a personal size container to just eat! Also, a HUGE favorite is their butter cookie - oh so good!”

Café
“Aldea serves up the best coffee in GH! Plus it's coffee with a purpose. Aldea works directly with farmers who live in the mountains of La Union, Honduras. All coffee they serve comes directly from these farmers. All coffees are purchased at above fair trade prices and are specialty grade. They work in partnership with Aldea Development, to provide microloans, training and opportunities for the farmers they work with. They prepare it there in front of you and it looks more like a lab than a coffee house! ”
