    The chai here is exceptional. They do beautiful cup art on drinks. There is a woo fire place, and two beautiful rooms along with an outdoor patio. They use intelligentsia coffee that is very good. <3

    They have a beautiful back patio where you can sit with your Intelligentsia espresso and get away from South Side for a bit.

    Really nice, cozy spot to read for hours. Espresso was underwhelming and I didn't feel comfortable asking the barista questions, though that could have been for a number of reasons. Will visit again.

    Buy some beans while you're there. A good way to pick up intelligentsia coffee beans without having to get it shipped from Chicago.

    Best coffee (espresso, cold drip) in Southside. If you're enlightened enough to find Starbucks terrible, come here.

    An entire French press for $4? This is awesome. And the place is dog friendly. Need I say more?!

    Love this place! Just be aware that the cream cheese on their bagels isn't Philly and it tastes sour. Won't order that again. But everything else??? WONDERFUL!!!

    Forget Crazy Mocha, Caribou and the 'bucks. This is the only place to get coffee on the Southside.
