Pro Tips

Elegant, old-timey space that opens up once you head upstairs. There's a 3 hour daily WiFi limit if you signup with a valid email address, or you can pay for more time from the network landing page. Upstairs area has 4 smaller tables (seating 2 with laptop), a bigger table (seating 4 with laptop), a couch and a booth.

Big space. Left side of the establishment has great sandwiches and salads, right side has coffee and pastries. Between the two sides and the upstairs, there are plenty of places to work and meet. Front patio is open in warmer weather. Staple for DePaul students, but welcome to all.

  • I love this place, but the Internet seems unreliable. I keep losing connection every few minutes. It comes right back, but it’s quite obnoxious.

    It’s great feedback and we are working something in this area. Thanks for the insights and please feel free to add speed tests to comments as you visit places. Rest assured we are collecting them and will put them to good use.

    Got 8 down / 1 up 16 ms here today. the ping time is actually pretty important – a ping time of like 20ms consistently will hold a skype call better than just good bandwidth. Would love to see the wifi stats allow some sort of averaging of checked in users who test (just 1 test may not be representative), and include the ping time.
