If you are swinging through Valparaiso and looking for a place to eat or get a cup of coffee you HAVE to go to Uptown Cafe. They have delicious sandwiches (turkey avocado is awesome), homemade soups, flat bread pizzas and salads. But if you are there during breakfast time do yourself a favor and get a breakfast panini because chances are you will be back again if you try one.
My favorite drink there is an iced vanilla americano, if you ask them to make it "tony's style" they will put in half and half for you giving a super sweet and creamy drink. Delicious!
The owners are as sweet as they come. They started the cafe a few years ago and you can see the couple Tony and Shannon working there almost every single day! They work hard to maintain a type of welcoming cafe that is becoming more and more rare.
I came here almost everyday when I was in undergrad at Valpo to study. You never feel rushed or like they are trying to turn tables. Plus there are free refills on drip coffee, making it a broke college kid's dream! It is a wonderful place to have meetings, meet up with friends, or get some work done. My parents love it here, my friends love it here... it's a pretty hard place not to love.
