The best part of waking up isn't just Folger's in your cup, it's finding out your coffee shop was named the best in Illinois.

You know, I have a friend who drinks an entire pot of coffee every morning before he goes to work.  That's not even a joke, I have the messages to prove it.  People have some serious superpowers when it comes to drinking coffee, they are a different type of breed I swear.

After scrolling through their Instagram forever, I realized their vibe is very minimal and I know plenty of people in my town would LOVE to make a stop here for the aesthetic alone.  No wonder they're considered the best coffee shop in Illinois!

Okay, I'm a sucker for coffee art.  I'll buy a coffee just to take a picture of the design on top and not even drink it.  I guess that's a toxic trait of mine haha.

If you want somewhere to hang out, you might be in the wrong spot; if your goal is locating the best coffee in Chicago, sending you elsewhere first would be a mistake. - Food & Wine
