A new snack shop and tea bar has opened its doors in West Village. Snack Camp debuted at 1464 Van Dyke at the beginning of September selling international snacks and imported candy bars, Metro Times reports.

Owners Vanessa Loftis-Canich and Mike Canich are Southeast Michigan natives who previously owned a candy store in Macomb County. After living out of state and traveling abroad they returned to the metro Detroit area.

Snack Camp’s menu is based off of the couple’s travels but also seems geared towards children. It features items like Japanese-style onigiri (nori-wrapped rice balls filled with things like smoked salmon), German-style currywurst with french fries, and vegan sloppy joes priced between $1.50 and $6. Snack Camp also serves a variety of loose leaf teas. For dessert there are sells cookies, brownies, and candy bars.

Snack Camp is located at 1464 Van Dyke; open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
