    Reigning "Best Coffee Spot in the West Loop". Iced coffee and Iced Latte served on Nitro Draft. Try them together for a Black and Tan. Few baked options make this a tasty coffee stop any time of day.

    Pour over goodness at the West Loop craft coffee roaster. No wi-fi as your focus should be on savoring the handcrafted cup of coffee and great conversation at this neighborhood spot.

    If you're lucky, your Barista will harmonize seamlessly with the Beatles background music. If you're not, the coffee with still be good.

    Great coffee, unique atmosphere. No WiFi, and staying is not the most comfortable. I'm assuming they want to encourage conversation.

    Mocha really is a mocha. Delicious! The iced coffee on draught is pretty good, note the latte on draught is nearly straight milk. Croissants are pretty good too.

    Barista #1 was kinda wack, checking his phone no less than 3x while "dealing" w us. Barista #2, however, was redeeming. V chill and cracking jokes. Macchiato was more foamy than frothed.

    Cafe au lait's are on point. Executed well, so it's a good middle between straight coffee and a latte. Not a fan of the bakery, bc the can't warm anything up. Cold/hard croissant? Not tasty.

    Small spot but usually a few tables. They keep it simple here, and it works. I recommend the latte for here - comes in a ceramic mug and feels like home.
