Good spot with inside/outside seating. Latte and sandwich were very average altho it is a former award winner in '14 and '15. On way from Lincoln Park/Fullerton St to Fullerton Red Line stop. Sandwich line up is very intriguing and desserts looked good.

I used to really like this place, and when I needed to head into Chicago I would come in for coffee and breakfast while I do work. The last two times have not been good, and I won't be going back, which is too bad...More

Went today for lunch.. I know they've catered to the Depaul crows for years but for $11 sandwich you're truly better off at potbellys. Ordered their corned beef as the cashier raved. 2/3 of the sandwich was nothing but fat (No meat).. no apologies.. She...More
