If you like to support local businesses, Coffee and Tea Exchange if your place for coffee. Roasting their own coffee since 1975, and introduced roasting to the residents of East Lakeview by roasting everything directly in the store. Today, all the roasting is done at the local warehouse, but the store does offer over 40 kinds of coffee, as well as floor-to-ceiling teas, herbs, and spices. Plus, they aim to keep their prices affordable, and there really isn't a coffee house or coffee corporation that can beat their price. The only downside is they do not offer tables to sit at, except during the summer months when they put a few table out on the sidewalk.
