Tons of places to sit and work. It’s not quiet but I don’t think you can expect that two blocks from a college campus with easily some of the best coffee in all of Chicago. It has it’s own parking lot but additionally free street parking if you hunt a little. By train it’s just a two block walk towards the lake.

Highly recommend latte but I’m biased. They’re incredibly knowledgeable about a huge variety of specialized coffee drinks!

    Neat atmosphere, nice guys, Metropolis beans, so you get a fairly bitter pull. Cortado is fairly well constructed.

    Pretty good for american coffee. I had cappuccino, comes with fizzy water, nice touch. I always find Intelligentsia coffee a little too bitter, maybe it’s the crema and it isn’t cut by sprinkled chocolate. Overall a good cup, consistent, a good local co…
