The Sparrows

The Sparrows is a coffeehouse and newsstand established in November of 2007 as The Stray Dog Cafe at 1035 Wealthy St. SE in the East Hills neighborhood. The name changed to The Sparrows in 2008 because of threat of legal action by the Stray Dog Bar & Grille in New Buffalo, MI. The Sparrows is owned by Lori Slager; Mike Knorr and Jason Brown (a former owner of Gold Coffee in Eastown) were also involved in opening this shop. Jason has now moved to CA.
