Experimental shop: coffee + tea + yogurt
Tobias Wacker and Joanna Hong describe lab as a "coffee plus tea plus yogurt experience." And because they both have master's degrees in urban planning from the U-M, they hope their cafe in McKinley Towne Centre will be a "third place."
Wacker, thirty, says a third place is "neither work nor home," but with elements of each. While Ann Arbor's rife with coffeehouses, he points out, most are very traditional looking.
