Full Eat & Drink ArtPrize 2010 coverage.


Go Java is a comfy, house-y feeling café. Its a great place to stop during ArtPrize for a warm drink and an energizing snack. Located downtown, you can stop for a bit and view the art and then sip your coffee as you take in the view of busy Ionia street from inside.

Try their Chai Latte, a spicy blend of green tea, caramel, clove, cinnamon and orange or their vanilla, chai and gingerbread flavored Harvest Spice Latte. Along with biscotti, candy bars, chips and other packaged snacks, they also serve delicious and fresh bagels and muffins from Apple Pie Bakery on 44th street. On your way out, be sure to get some chocolate covered espresso beans from their gumball machine.
