    Probably the definitive place to work on a laptop in northern Logan Square. Free WiFi, bottomless coffee, tons of vegan pastry options and comfy seating - if you're lucky enough find an open chair.

    La Boulangerie had to negotiate a ridiculous non-compete clause with this store to only sell 8 croissants at a time (down from 12). La Boulangerie is closing Dec 31st, 2013. Won't be going here!

    The sandwiches are great, but be prepared for them to take ten minutes to make a simple sandwich while six employees just stand around.

    While not the friendliest bunch in the world (you're more likely to get warmth and a smile from the Logan Starbucks) their product is without peer. Great coffees & espresso. Solid sandwiches as well.
