Cafe Descartes

Two words: Oatmeal latte! The most brilliant java creation--espresso, steamed milk, oatmeal & dried fruit--make their signature a must-try.

Great coffee! – It might be a bit hard to find if you're not used to the area, but it's worth the search! I got a regular coffee with a shot of white chocolate in it(my regular drink wherever I go), and it was easily the best I've ever had! The staff was even polite and friendly! Next time I'm in Chicago, I won't even bother with another coffee shop!

Good Gellato Shake – We went into Cafe Descartes for a quick drink, the decor was cool, with drawings of various philosophers all around and delicious, large-looking pastries all along the counter. We ordered a Gelatte, a scoop of ice cream with expresso, but then the kid behind the counter said "Are you sure you want that? I think it's gross". As strange as it was for him to say that, we just ordered the banana fudge gellato shake instead, which is just a milkshake. It was pretty thin, but it had small chunks of fudge in it and tasted pretty good. Not bad for a quick stop for a drink along N Michigan
