A lot of times I think, I want to go do my reading, writing or praying at a coffee shop. Generally, I think about how long it's going to take me to walk there and decide to just watch TV instead. Since TV is no longer and option, I'm going to try to get to some new coffee shops.
Life would be perfect if there was just a busboys and poets in Chicago (and/or if I lived in D.C.), but it's not so...
Here are some of my faves in my neighborhood:
- Panera (Clark and Diversey) - I love the atmosphere and they have a lot of comfy chairs, but the more I go here, the more I realize how it's a homeless people hangout. Unfortunately, that's not really a good look.
- Starbucks (Clark and Deming) - This is the most comfortable Starbucks in the area, but they close at 9 p.m. - like seriously?
- Argo Tea Cafe (Briar and Broadway) - I love this place, but the seating isn't very comfortable. They're like either come here to work or go home. LOL!
- Caribou Coffee (Clark and Wellington) - This place wins on atmosphere, clientele, seating. I just love it!
So what are your favorite coffee shops in the Chi? #PutMeOn
