By day, this Lincoln Park coffee shop will serve as a spot for commuters and neighborhood folks to get their buzz on. By night it will transform into a gathering place for the after-dinner crowd in search of an alternative to the bar scene--look for acoustic musicians on Friday and Saturday evenings. On the first level, on-the-go caffeine fiends can grab a quick drink. The modern, wood-toned space on the second floor is a prime spot for studying, socializing or simply sipping, with Metropolis coffee as the go-to brew. (Java junkies also well geek out over the Kees van der Westen Mirage Duette espresso machine.) You can expect pastries, whole cakes, cookies and breads from local bakeries on offer as well.
