After my first visit I’d give it five stars. Convenient for stopping off the interstate. Brewed black coffee is very good (but my family is enjoying scones and cocoa). Nice mellow music, friendly and warm charming atmosphere with a variety of seating. We’ll be back on trips through Grand Rapids. See More

There are lots of coffee shops in Grand Rapids, Lantern is definitely on the top of my list. The warm welcoming atmosphere and baristas make this place cozy and a true destination.

Nice atmosphere, no problem getting a space when I was there the other night, quality service, the coffee was good but the scone was nothing special. Not bad, just nothing special.

I fell in love with this place on a visit a couple of years ago. Living in Grand Rapids again, I'm glad to be able to enjoy a cup of good coffee in a good atmosphere. ♥

One of my favorite coffee houses in GR! Good people, good coffee at a very reasonable price and quiet enough most of the time to conduct business.

Legit coffee beans used, Calder's milk used which is a local farm, non-homogenized milk with a low 140F pausterize process to keep good enzymes in. So a capuccino is creamy and delicious. Great variet...y of drinks combination offered. Atmosphere of quite Pub is excellent. See More

Such an adorable place. I love sitting upstairs and working on homework and watching the people and cars pass by. The atmosphere keeps me coming back! (And so do the lattes)

I absolutely love the atmosphere and especially the coffee here! My only critique is that the WiFi doesn't always work with all of my devices. From what it sounds like, this has been a problem for awh...ile. It makes me nervous to come here to work on homework when i don't know if I'm going to be able to connect my laptop to the network.

If the owners would resolve this issue, an absolute 5 star coffee shop!

Lantern Coffee Bar and Lounge is about 30 minutes from my house. Yet I bypass other coffee bars along the way to go there! The staff is not only knowledgeable about the coffee scene in general but the...y are passionate about people and doing life in community. They not only believe in it they work hard to create it! The product and latte art are always topnotch and the regulars that I have had a chance to interact with (OK and YES be one) are just as kind and community driven as the staff.. If you live in GR or are passing through and want to get to the heart of this GREAT city, this is the BEST place to start with! BY the way, its best experienced when you actually STOP and breathe for a few. See More

I can't speak to their coffee, but their tea selections and blends are fantastic, as are their baked goods. Great atmosphere, too.

Probably my most coveted place for coffee and creative in GR. I love the atmosphere, the coffee is always on point and I can post up in one of the comfy chairs downstairs for hours, writing, reading a...nd designing. See More

Love the atmosphere! Their coffee is so good! I always get a dirty chi with almond milk and they make it perfect every time! Only thing that bugs me is a lot of the times the people working their seem... grumpy and barley talk when I order something... Wish they would smile more, makes me sad:( See More
