    A true neighborhood coffee shop in Bucktown. Personable, friendly service. Lots of conversation happening. A cool, old-school decor. The Nutella and Ipsento Lattes OMG. Try their Nitro Brew too.

    In an Ipsento latte, whole milk is swapped out for coconut milk, sugar is ditched in favor of honey, and a pinch of cayenne is added to bring the heat: This is your tropical island retreat in a glass. Read more

    "Baristas are superfriendly, direct-trade beans are roasted in small batches weekly and offered in a variety of brew methods (such as pour-over and French press) that turn out lovely cups of coffee." Read more

    Probably my favorite coffee shop in Chicago. A favorite when I lived there, and a must whenever I'm back in town. Amazing coffee, and delicious sandwiches with options for everyone.

    The cardamom rose water latte is a lovely delicate change of pace. The Ipsento (make it sassy!) is sweet & fun, the sandwiches are generous & the service is sweeter than a Nutella latte. Love.

    The iced Ipsento latte (coconut milk, honey, cayenne, & milk) is delightful. Also grab some rosemary sea salt caramels by the register because you're worth it.

    For a delightfully caffeinated sugar bomb, try the Nutella or The Ipsento. Lovely baked goods, cute, airy space, and friendly staff who really knows their coffee.

    First nitro-kegged cold brew coffee I've seen since moving back from Atlanta. Absolutely delicious. Outside seating can be loud because it's right off Western, though.

    the espresso and SOE coffees are top notch-- sparkling water served on the side of the espresso is a beautiful touch. specialty/seasonal lattes are so well done.

    It isn't an every day order but the Ipsento Latte is possibly the best coffee drink I have ever had.

    Glorious coffee - the only stuff worth writing home to NZ about. Try the nutella or the cardamom/rosewater latte - all the sandwiches are amazing!

    The 'Ipsento' latte is great for the spice lover... & if you're wanting something sweet try the 'Nutella' latte. You honestly can't go wrong :)

    They get everything right here. From iced coffee, go the teas. Get a seat by the window for ample people watching and general wanderlust.

    The Nutella Mocha is my fiance's favorite and I could eat the Garrison Keillor sandwich every day of my life. I will be sad to move from the area b/c of this place.

    Their take on the fall favorite is heavy with house-roasted espresso, balanced by steamed milk and a homemade blend of ingredients, including pumpkin puree and pumpkin-coconut syrup. Read more

    Legitimate shop without the elitist barista vibe. Patio is the jam when not too cold. Hidden gem in bucktown.

    Okay, okay...the Pumpkin Patch latte is just the best. Unbelievable, truthfully. Or maybe the Nutella one is. I'll never decide. Just go here. Go.
