We love coffee. We love to go out and get coffee. We spend a great deal of time with coffee. Lucky for us, Chicago has a ton of excellent coffee houses and cafes. Here are some of our faves so far.
Intelligentsia, multiple locations. Ours is 3123 North Broadway, Lakeview, Chicago, 60657.
Seriously. We moved to Chicago without coming here first. I only had Google Maps to help me decide where to live. When I saw Intelligentsia, I knew this was going to be our neighborhood.
City Grounds Coffeebar: 507 W. Dickens, Lincoln Park, Chicago, 60614
Really good espresso in a clean, contemporary space. The regular coffee is the pour-over kind, yummy.
Bourgeois Pig Cafe: 738 W. Fullerton Parkway, Lincoln Park, Chicago, 60614
Cool old house with brick and wood. A nice patio in the summer. Good food, espressos and delicious huge cakes (the best carrot cake I’ve had in awhile). YUM!
