The folks behind Coffee Ambassadors partnered with local vendors to create this community-oriented Bucktown cafe with ample vegan and vegetarian options. Look for breads and pastries and an array of sandwiches incorporating organic ingredients from local farmers' markets. Coffee and espresso beans, all direct-trade, are roasted in house. If you don't take your java straight up, there's a lineup of specialty espresso drinks, including an interesting honey latte made with espresso, honey and coconut milk. A large conference table encourages meetings and conversation, but don't worry, laptop-toting loners: There's free WiFi for you too.
