  • "Sidle up to the 'bar' for a taste of Dark Matter coffee, which is roasted in eight-pound batches above the caf in unusual flavor profiles that have caught the attention of area restaurants."
  • order anything! it's all good!!
  • Best F*%KING coffee in the city! Look no further my friends.
  • All organic,straight from the farmer coffee, hand roasted by a small crew of people who take the love of coffee brewing to a whole new level
  • Ask one of the baristas to make you a pour over. Great way to get intimate with the Dark Matter delicious blends and single origin coffees.
  • If you say something really funny, then Gideon laughs like a dolphin
  • Caf latte super bon, chocolatine gnreuse, frache et excellente
  • I'm my humble opinion, Dark Matter is roasting the best coffee in Chicago.
  • Wake and bake! Wake and bake! Best latte ever.
  • One big fan: superstar chef Grant Achatz, who uses Star Lounge's beans at his Chicago restaurant, Alinea.
  • A great coffee shop, er bar, run by some serious coffee geeks. Love the vibe of the place as much as the drinks.
  • Get there while the Guatemalan gettin' is good!
  • The Agave Latte is amazing, but the Mayan Mocha leaves a kick.
  • Excellent lattes abd fresh pastries
  • More seating upstairs (and it is quieter up there too)
  • Definitely the best coffee and coffee bar in town! I always have so much fun when I stop in. :) the staff always has fantastic recommendations!
  • The cold coffee on tap is addictive!
