Noble Tree punctuates the array of businesses on Clark St. with its quiet elegance offering an alternative to the oversaturated bar scene. This tri-level abode contains a library, antique couches, wingback chairs, lamps and books at every turn. The exterior stone house seems more apropos in a rustic London town than in the middle of Lincoln Park. Inside, Metropolitan coffee is served so are loose teas, a full-menu of iced and warm coffees, smoothies, sandwiches, baked goods and of course "serious pies" from Hoosier Mama Pie Company. It's a place where pie eaters and bookworms alike can come together and enjoy their solitude, get lost in a great read or catch up with friends.
