Pro Tips

Upscale coffee shop from has table service but they're not bothered if you camp with just a coffee for a long while. The chain and espresso roast is out of Vienna, Austria, but has only a few locations in Chicago. Also consider their full kitchen breakfast, pastry, and sandwich menu—it's worth it. Weekday mornings are perfect with no table pressure, busy weekends aren't as good for laptop squatters. Outdoor sidewalk area is great for nice days, though the wifi slows at the tables furthest from the door. Full menu prices and a service tip means this will be a little more expensive than typical coffee shop, but it's comfortable work.
