Whether it’s cold, hot, windy, or calm, there’s never a bad time to hit up the wide range of cool cafés in Chicago.
Chicago cafés differ in style and size, but what they all have in common is the desire to make customers feel relaxed and at ease while drinking down a cup of Joe or noshing on some small bites. There are literally hundreds of cafés and coffee shops throughout Chicago from Lakeview to Wicker Park to Bridgeport.
While the majority of cafés in the city are good spots for a quick meal and some coffee, there are many others that double as bars, live music venues, pastry shops and more. The cafés are good for everything from eating brunch or lunch, working in a public setting, curling up with a good book, grabbing a mid-day glass of wine, or just hanging out with friends in a comfortable setting.
Regardless of what you’re looking for, there is no shortage of great Chicago cafés to choose from, the only reason to vary your decision may be based on whatever the weather is at the moment.
