Don't judge a book my its cover. This place is cheap and has an awesome atmosphere. 1st floor=hip hangout with friends. Top floors=study party zone.
Snag a half-pound of primo Metropolis coffee beans, plus a cup to sip in front of this spot’s cozy fireplace or around one of the wooden tables that line the many nooks and crannies.
Metropolis coffee + free wi-fi + plenty of peace and quiet! If you can find a place to sit, this is a marvelous study spot.
Try the pie during a study break. You can take it back to your table and enjoy! Also, try not to take up a large table if you can help it, the regulars will get upset.
Great local spot(local owners) to chill out at.Super selection of coffee/teas and many snacks/sandwiches for all.Staff is super sweet! Free wifi and outdoor seating,summer is coming.
Great atmosphere and importantly: great espresso
CLOSED!!!!! Saddest thing ever!
Green tea iced tea. Yum.
Great coffee shop, lots of places to sit and unwind!
Go to Noble Tree Cafe and have the Ginger and Lime Rooibos tea. Sip it with a book of your choice on the 3rd floor.
Been closed for a while, but will forever remain on my list of favorite coffee shops in Chicago
Autumn latte. Tastes like fall.
The comment on the skim is ridiculous, and ancient. It happens all the time. Some of the staff are even lactose intolerant. They care.
Nice feel and decor on all 3 floors. Board games on second floor. Food/drink nothing exceptional
I can't understand why anyone would like to hang around here ;) ... Amazing place, peppermint tea is a must!
This place serves soy lattes with unsweetened/unflavoured soy milk, unlike Starbucks. The almond croisant here is also delicious.
The hot chocolate and banana cream pies are a must have!
The dirty chai is great. Chai + espresso is pure bliss in a mug.
Don't order anything with skim milk. You will not get it. Happened to me 2 / 2 times, despite being very specific (and re-checking when I got the drink!).
