New coffee shop Chez Zara opens in [email protected] Building

The greater Downtown Detroit is welcoming its third coffee shop this summer with the opening of Chez Zara in the [email protected] Building.

The downtown Detroit coffee shop next to Grand Circus Park is taking over the space that was previously occupied by Stub Hub, which moved to another office space in the building. The coffee shop now shares a space with the lobby for the [email protected] Building offices on Broadway Street.

"It's a perfect fit for the [email protected] Building," says Mallak Beydoun, owner of Chez Zara.

Beydoun opened Chez Zara at a different storefront on Woodward a few years ago but moved to her new space to be a part of the [email protected] Building's emerging start-up scene and efforts to revitalize Detroit. She and her three employees will focus on providing local, fresh coffee that is made from organic and fair-trade sources.

"We want to incorporate local brands that people don't know much about," Zara says.
