This place has plenty of seats. It has a large coffee menu and a variety of teas. The only thing is that you are charged extra 50 cents on your card when your order is less than 10 usd.

Loved this spot - just hang out here and enjoy the free wifi and great coffee. Try the brownies as well - amazing. Great cafe in a great neighbourhood

Really good coffee here but the place is slammed on a Sunday morning and getting served requires patience. This place has an attitude and the product is high quality.

The perfect afternoon retreat - this joint offers stellar ambiance with tons of little knick-knacks and doodads to satisfy any wandering eye. A great stop while strolling through the Wicker Park area back toward downtown.

Pros: Decent coffee. Good pastry. Great food menu. We had a slice of quiche. It was great. They have both whole milk and almond milk available. Cons: No soda water served with a macchiato. Not bad, I'd visit again.

Great place to hang out, read, study or meet a friend. Interior is sorta a cross between the coffee shop in "Friends" (with loads of coaches and comfy lamps) and some sort of squat. They have decent coffee, snacks. Perfect.
