A welcoming, communal coffee house, Backlot Coffee aims to foster and enrich community. Owned by Isaac Bloom and John Kim—founder of the beloved Brothers K Coffeehouse and The Other Brother in Evanston—Backlot offers Stumptown Coffee, baked goods and savory bites, all from local purveyors. Filled with natural light, Backlot’s rotating local artwork and a large, whimsical mural by famed Skokie artist, Jay Ryan, titled “Coffee Run,” lend to the bright, warm ambiance.
