So, without further ado, here are the 3 best independent coffee shops in Chicago:

Café Mustache

Logan Square

Café Mustache is a charming Logan Square joint with peculiar drinks and a great atmosphere. Head here to listen to some good music, work hard, and maybe try their famous Black Pepper & Vanilla Fig Latte. But, note, this not your usual coffee shop. At night, it turns into a bar featuring live bands, craft brews, and great cocktails.

Bucktown

If you’re a fan of craft coffee drinks and sustainable agricultural methods, then Ipsento is the place for you. The coffee here is truly mouthwatering and one sip of their famous Ipsento latte or Nutella mocha will leave you asking for more. This café also offers food options, mostly sandwiches named after famous writers such as the Garrison Keillor (a turkey sandwich) or the F. Scott Fitzgerald (a ham sandwich).

Café Jumping Bean

Pilsen

If you’re a fan of art, Café Jumping Bean will be your next obsession. Part coffee shop, part local gallery, part neighborhood meeting place, this quaint Pilsen joint is perfect for people who love good coffee and a hurricane of colors. Artsy and picturesque, this is one of the most beautiful cafés in the windy city.

And when you’re done getting your daily dose of caffeine, you can always join us on the Whirly court to burn off some of that energy!
