Cafés in Chicago

Not looking for a wild night out, but simply need a quick pick-me-up from a day of exploring? A great cafe is easy to find around nearly every corner, leaving you with many choices beyond the regular chain establishments. So find some time to grab a Chicago RedEye newspaper, a café ole, and sit back and relax! If you are hungry, stop for a homemade sandwich from the extensive lunch menu and a cup of brew at Bourgeois Pig in the heart of Lincoln Park. It offers fresh food, plenty of caffeine, and a warm, rustic vibe. Get a bite to eat at Julius Meinl, a Austrian inspired cafe, who elegantly serve coffee and biscuits on a tray. Or, if you are looking for a late night snack stop by Pick Me Up Cafe, open 24 hrs. on the weekends, for well prepared food, desserts, and coffee. Cafe Selmarie, in Lincoln Square also offers delightful bakery treats, and fantastic vegetarian food. Chicago also takes pride in providing a quality brew, so if you are a coffee junkie, make sure to check out the very sleek and innovative brewing methods at Intelligentsia, the rotating menu of beans at Ch'ava, the truly bold and flavorful brews at The Coffee Studio, the flavors and unique 80's decor at The Wormhole, and the array of teas at Coffee and Tea Exchange.
