Ferris - West Side

This Ferris coffee shop is located in the heart of Grand Rapids’ historic West Side. Once our flagship location, the cafe is still here to serve the community. In 2018, we were able to sell the building to our friends at Grand Valley State University. The college plans to use the space to expand their school of engineering, and we couldn’t imagine a better organization to sell to and it is a great feeling knowing the space will be used for the purpose of education. 

Despite moving our headquarters just down the street, we were able to partner with GVSU to remain within the building to continue serving customers in the neighborhood. Baristas serve up classic espresso beverages, pour over coffees, and a creative variety of other rotating drinks.

Ample seating is available throughout the cafe. From small tables to large conference-style tables and with plush cushioned chairs near the floor-to-ceiling windows, the space continues to be a haven for all types. When the weather permits, a sit-down patio is available so beverages can be enjoyed with a breath of fresh air. Come enjoy plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, where dogs are welcomed to hang out on the patio as well!

Whether you are aiming to buckle down and get some work done, chat with the friendly staff behind the bar, or if you simply want to enjoy a great cup of coffee, the West Side Ferris coffee shop is ideal.
