ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Much-loved by the Ann Arbor community, Elixir Vitae Coffee and Tea in downtown Ann Arbor has closed its doors.

Known for its non-fussy drinks and cozy atmosphere, the cafe on Maynard St. originally opened as Cafe Ambrosia in 2002. It changed its name in 2012 when owner Ed Renoullet opened a second location on Liberty St.

The cafe has been named as one of the first coffee shops in the early 2000s to have begun cultivating Ann Arbor’s caffeinated image. Elixir Vitae was also known for its $2 chai lattes.

The Maynard St. location closed in early January. The Liberty St. location closed its doors a few years ago.

A4 has reached out to the business for comment.
