Next Door Café
Coffee, Pastries, Cakes, Chocolate, Candy, and Gelato
Looking for a sweet treat? Come to our Next Door Dessert & Coffee House where we’ve got cakes, pies, cupcakes, gelato, cookies, brownies, chocolates, candies, oh my, the list is as long as it is sweet. We’ve done our due diligence in curating an amazing array of chocolates, some made right here in Ann Arbor, others from across the U.S. or abroad. Whether you are looking for a special gift or a treat for yourself, our chocolate and confections will impress. Our baked goods from Zingerman’s Bakehouse alongside a cup of fresh roasted coffee from Zingerman’s Coffee Co. are reason enough to pay the Deli a visit.
Products We're Featuring
Next Door Drink of the Month:
Mexican Drinking Chocolate
This traditional Mexican chocolate (cacao, sugar, cinnamon and almonds!) has been stone ground and not heavily refined, thus lending to a crunchy texture and bright flavor. The almonds add a little richness to the body. The cinnamon is gracefully balanced, adding a little spice without being overdone. We like to combine chopped Mexican chocolate with water, but milk and almond milk are also excellent combinations.
Zingerman’s Classic Cocoa
Made with Scharffen Berger cocoa, steamed milk & real whipped cream!
Take home a tin!
Every Day is a Snow Day
Warm up after a day of sledding and building snowmen
with a frothy mug of Zingerman’s Next Door’s most popular
cocoa for over 15 years. Add your favorite kind of milk to
make our chocolatey classic at home, and don’t forget to
pair it with Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory Marshmallows!
$4.25/short, $5/tall, $15.99/2 lb tin (32 servings)

Zingerman’s Coffee Co. Roaster’s Pick:
Kenyan coffees have a reputation for elegant, fruit forward profiles. So much of what makes them delicious is the result of the tight controls producers keep on how their coffee cherries are processed. This lot is harvested by hand by members of the Irigia Co-Op, with the utmost care and attention. And, all that care translates into a damn fine cup of coffee!
Bright and juicy with flavors of raisin, black currant and lime.
