  • This place is not in business to sell coffee, it seems they're in business to tell people how they should drink their coffee.
  • It doesn't look like much, but this place has great coffee and even better baristas. And it's pretty quiet, a good alternative to wormhole down the street.
  • Most underrated coffeeshop in the Wicker area
  • No longer cash only! Accepts credit now. Great cup of coffee, excellent atmosphere, nice baristas!
  • Brazilian red eye - the drink after a long night
  • Love the bright feel and the high ceilings of this space. Great place to work from but 2-hour limit on wifi.
  • Great cup of Coffee.. Love the pour over technique .
  • Coffe nirvana! Try a pour over.
  • One of the top must-hit spots for a good cup of joe.
  • tim is the best.
  • Get a shot of vanilla in your espresso. It's delicious and homemade!
  • The banana financier cake is my favorite breakfast pastry in the city.
  • The Dragonwell green tea is a great option for a blustery Chicago day.
  • Very good caramel macchiato, wasn't crowded, so is perfect for study sessions. A lot of space and delicious desserts.
  • Straight forward espresso bar serving up delicious lattes, macchiatos, and basic teas. If you appreciate high quality coffee, this place is for you. The upstairs is for laptops and group work.
  • The name says it all. Great seating outdoors, upstairs, and at the bar!
  • Hangout to a pour over in this Bucktown coffee shop. You'll feel that coffee buzz in a good way.
  • Great for working/reading. Lots of outlets and tables.
  • Feels like the inside of a Restoration Hardware catalog. Not sure if that's good or bad.
  • The espresso was really good, but the service wasn't the friendliest. There's too many other great options in Wicker to put up with being treated coldly.
