The Maple Theater has been a Metro Detroit institution for many years. The smell of fresh ground coffee mingled with buttery popcorn greeted guests as they stopped by to take-in films that were often overlooked by the mainstream theaters. Our friends, Jon and Lauren Goldstein, approached us 3 years ago with a plan to renovate this theater and inquired whether we’d be interested in building a full coffee bar inside this reimagined space. A café in a theater featuring an eclectic selection of films that draws guests from across the metro area, and from a diverse cross-section of interests, sounded brilliant to us, and we moved forward to make this plan a reality.
Great Lakes Coffee at The Maple features a full complement of coffees brewed manually on the La Marzocco GB5 espresso machine, custom-built pour-over rail, or the exceptionally rare Clover single-cup brewing system. There are pastries, food, a full liquor bar, and all of the above can be enjoyed in any of the three luxuriously appointed theaters. Reclaimed wood floors and a custom-fabricated fireplace provide a warm and inviting setting to meet friends, or business associates, or that special person in your life. “And that’s all folks.”
