This sunny Humboldt Park cafe's aim is simple: Do it right and keep it local. Co-owner Jonah Shalack, who’s worked in the coffee biz for many years, is committed to buying local and keeping operations eco-friendly. That means Metropolis coffee, Red Hen bread and treats baked daily from dough courtesy of Sugar & Spice in Evanston, as well as corn-based plastic products and natural cleaning products. Add a friendly, passionate staff and a dash of color in the dining room, and you have the formula for a great neighborhood coffee shop. Order coffee, fresh-made sandwiches or baked goods at the counter, then settle in for free WiFi. Staffers will bring your order out to you. Discounts go to anyone toting a travel mug.
