Great alternative to coffee!! Amazing selection and knowledgable staff! Super helpful!. Amazing selection of teas. Incredibly welcoming atmosphere.At this place you can buy loose leaf tea for home and purchase hot drinks.
Chicago q is an excellent place for barbecue. It is on the expensive side but the food is so good it is worth the price. A very high quality restaurant with great food, outstanding drinks, and fantastic service. The atmosphere is casual rustic elegance. Plenty of street parking, great patio or bar area dining for smaller groups.
Great selection of coffees and teas and a very nice guy. Ask questions! Sam will enthusiastically help you find what you're looking for. He's a lovely gentleman and incredibly friendly. He has a fun smattering of worldly coffees, teas, spices and treats as well as a great selection of high end coffee and tea brewing equipment options.
Absolutely incredible food. The inside is decorated with so much cool memorabilia. Not cheesy stuff like at a sports bar but the real stuff collected over a career spanning decades. Awesome ambiance, service & food! 5 stars all the way! Ditka's is a great place to go for dinner and drinks if you are looking to go somewhere nice but not "fancy". I recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves sports and good food.
Delightful dinner here. Seated promptly with a reservation, great service, good food. Fabulous service. Outstanding food. Excellent drinks. Their signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet, Wildfire Chopped Salad, Roasted Prime Rib of Beef and Cedar Planked Salmon. They also offer a variety of fresh salads and sandwiches.
The atmosphere is about as Irish as you can get without going to Ireland. The beer and whisky selection is great. Their servesr are very knowledgeable about the food and drink selections. The menu here has many Irish standards and more.
As a place to stop in for a paper cuppa when you're out and about, Gaslight does not disappoint in the slightest. Their pastries are better than most in the neighborhood. And their coffee and Chai making skills are better too. It's in a very cool space with a ton of room and a huge open floor plan with lots of seats, including a counter that acts as a bar.
If you're looking for a DELICIOUS, traditional cup - this is the place to go. The interior has a minimalist and hipster vibe. There are toboggans on the wall and the speakers are made of suitcases and chests. The different types of coffee for purchase are arranged in a re-purposed canoe. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. This roaster/cafe definitely doesn't have the snobby feel that is common with many establishments. The bottm line -great coffee!
Great selection of Estate and house blends to suit all tastes.Great coffee, super chill atmosphere, sunny windows and friendly baristas are up for a chat! A must try! Hands down one of the best places to get high quality in-house freshly roasted coffee in this city in a no frills environment. A go-to for cortado's
Katherine Anne Confections has been creating local-focused sweets in Chicago since 2006. Their hand-dipped truffles, soft honey caramels, and pillowy marshmallows are ridiculously good, partially due to theie awesome ingredients. Cream is from a 500-cow herd of Jerseys in central Illinois, and local wildflower honey is used to replace corn syrup. If you haven't had hot chocolate from Katherine Anne's, you haven't had it at all. No matter if you choose a truffle, caramel or marshmallow, you are in for a delectable treat.No matter if you choose a truffle, caramel or marshmallow, you are in for a delectable treat.
Metropolis never ceases to please or amaze. The coffee, teas and espresso are layered with complex flavors that are paradoxical as they are bold as they are light. The place is always busy, it really doesn't matter what day or time you come. But since it occupies multiple storefronts, the seating is surprisingly large and I rarely have had trouble finding a place to sit, with the exception of Sunday afternoons.
This is an adorable chocolate cafe! A wide range of small chocolates as well as gelato, pastries, and specialty coffee drinks. This place is adorable! Friendly staff, clean atmosphere. Staff is very nice and friendly, it's a small store and seems to be busy all the time, with lots of tourists and regulars coming around. If you're visiting Chicago for the first time, this is definitely a place you should stop for a sweet treat!
This place is great. Obviously the fun decor lends itself to a perky atmosphere, and the coffee is delicious. Apparently this is THE hipster coffee bar to be at on rainy weekends. Line to the door and line of cups awaiting caffeine on the counter. Two baristas worked like a symphony to create and expedite drinks to the awaiting customers. The lattes and pastries are tasty, and some are even vegan-friendly.
A venerable Chicago institution known far and wide, Margie's Candies has delighted young and old with their homemade sundaes, shakes and hand-dipped candies for more than 90 years. It's such a cool spot! Like stepping back in time. Completely untouched by modern world. Go there with a few friends and split the Royal George Ala George. Besides being incredible, it's a great photo opportunity with the largest sundae ever.
They import and roast their own beans in house! Their sandwiches are made to order and are loaded with fresh ingredients that we always ensure are of the highest quality! They have a plurality of brew methods, beans to buy, and brewing equipment. The staff is helpful and the door is cozy. The coffee is so smooth and delicious and the staff super sweet!
