Sparrows Coffee opens café in Creston


Sparrows Coffee has expanded its local retail presence by opening a new location at Kingma’s Market in the Creston / Cheshire Village neighborhood at 2225 Plainfield Ave. BORN.

The cafe is just under 600 square feet inside and has a large outdoor patio that provides guests with a welcoming atmosphere to sit inside and out.

“As a local Grand Rapids-based coffee shop, we’re excited to add an additional location at Kingma’s Market to share our coffee with the community,” said Tim Volkema, CEO of Sparrows Coffee. “We couldn’t imagine a better partner than Kingma’s Market, another local business with deep ties to the community. “

The cafe has its own exterior entrance at the southeast corner of Plainfield Avenue and Marywood Drive, and is internally connected to Kingma’s Market. To celebrate the grand opening, Sparrows will be running a buy-in-one promotion on all beverage options through Sunday.

Kingma’s Market full-service coffee is featured with five exclusive specialty drinks:

  • Golden Chai – golden milk, black tea and cardamom
  • Leland Palmer – black gold tea, lemonade and lavender
  • Ghia Colada – sweet aperitif, coconut, pineapple and lime
  • Dirtier Harry – black tea, espresso, oat milk and bergamot
  • Cold Foam Moka – cold infusion, cold foam and mono-producer mocha sauce

The location also serves espresso-based drinks, including lattes and cortados, as well as filter coffee, cold brew, and other drinks. Sparrows is teaming up with local vendors including Rise Bakery, Lively Up Kombucha and Atucún Chocolate, and will sell ready-made bags of Sparrows and Joven coffee to go.

“On behalf of Kingma’s Market, we are absolutely delighted to welcome Sparrows Coffee to our store,” said Alan Hartline, President of Kingma’s Market. “Coffee is a great addition to the neighborhood and just in time for the summer weather. We are delighted to see our community take full advantage of the beautiful outdoor patio.

The sparrows will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information visit The sparrows site or follow @thesparrowsgr on Instagram.
