Thrillist - The 10 Best Independent Coffee Shops in Chicago

Looking immaculate amidst exposed bricks and pretty woods, this no-frills modern espresso bar plays music by everyone from Panda Bear to Beastie Boys while packing a massive punch with their double strength cold brew coffee. Chill out with a brie apple walnut flatbread followed by Miko’s Italian Ice and more shots... of booze, not espresso (or both).
