Great macarons and other treats are available in this cozy spot.
The library is a great spot to do work (free wifi!) when you can't bear another coffee shop. Visit the Winter Garden, a beautiful bright room with high ceilings and trees.
One of my favorite spots to spend the afternoon. There's a strong section of Chicago-focused books, a children's section, and a great little cafe.
A cozy spot to settle in with your laptop and have vegan baked goods.
Coffee is sourced from Africa and you can get a cup with a baked treat.
Cozy spot to settle in with a sandwich, croissant, or other baked treat.

The coffee is exceptional at this small Wicker Park cafe.

A new spot in Lakeview dedicated to the art of great coffee. Try heading in for one of the pastry pop-ups!
