Pro Tips

Great music. Decent amount of outlets. Available printer. Comfy seats in the back. Rogers Park staple. Friendliest staff, great coffee, and good space to work.

  • lots of outlets, good snack and drink selection. If you have to do conference calls it can be hit more miss with noise levels getting pretty high.

  • Update April 2016 — Sol Cafe has finally replaced its wifi with a different provider that is fast and reliable. This is a game-changer, and with continued small improvement (like custom donuts on more days!), Sol is poised to return to a neighborhood favorite workspot.

  • Chris Ridgeway

    The staff at Sol Cafe are friendly and spot-on and the space is bright, but the wifi is badly unreliable. Multiple visits where I couldn’t connect at all, and found other users in the cafe who couldn’t as well. The staff try to fix it but like a normal coffee house staff, don’t know much more than how to unplug it. This has unfortunately dropped Sol Cafe off my regular working list.
