The winter weather finally feels like it’s breaking here in Chicago, good days to take a stroll and visit a cafe.
The Noble Tree is located right around the corner from our hostel and brews some excellent Metropolis Coffee. They also boast 3 floors of sprawling cafe room to relax, read, or surf the web. Try their serious pie or grab a cup to go, either way this place has character and it’s cool.
Take a walk up Broadway and try some infamous Intelligentsia coffee or tea. This place really offers some of the best eye-opening drinks you can find in the city. Besides, check out some shops while you’re on Broadway such as: Threadless, Reckless Records, & Buffalo Exchange.
The Bourgeois Pig is more than a cafe. They offer some most excellent sandwiches as well as tasty vegan options. Better yet, they’re a 5 minute walk from our front door and their coffee is pretty darn good as well.
After a cafe, visit the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Its free, next to the zoo, and always beautiful.
