AWAKe Café

Since 2019


AWAKE, strategically located  3 blocks from Wayne State University, home of over 17,000 students from 70 different countries, is more than a coffee shop. Our vision for this café is that it will be a place where people awake to the love of God and the Gospel message through the care and service of our ministry team and the conversations that happen here.
