    North Side Social gets all the hype, but Java Shack is just a good, local, community-oriented coffee shop. Great cold brew (and nitro!), fun espresso drinks, tasty local pastries, and a sunny patio.

    Though there were plenty of people there it was the the weirdest thing. Absolute silence. Perfect to take your drink outside and do some work or light reading.

    vary good coffee, tea, and more. They have 20+ flavors of Italian soda (spritzer with syrup) that I recommend trying. If you feel like dropping 5 bucks, then go for the specials.
