One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is wake up early and walk to a local coffee shop for my morning coffee. Chicago has so many wonderful local roasters which are readily available at different restaurants and coffee shops throughout the city. Lucky for me, I don’t always have to go downtown Chicago to find good coffee. Here are some of my favorite local coffee shops around Oak Park:
Buzz Cafe: Serves Metropolis coffee and has delicious specialty drinks like their almond latte. You can grab a drink to go from their counter or stay and dine in for their delicious organic breakfast options.
Live Fresko: Also serves Metropolis coffee and has delicious Greek coffee specialties like the Freddo Fresko. They are also known for their fresh made to order juices and smoothies as well as Greek yogurt and quinoa bowls.
Prairie Bread Kitchen: Serves Intelligentsia and has my favorite iced coffee! Be sure to grab one of their delicious homemade scones or muffins to go with your coffee and a loaf of bread to take home for the week.
Blue Max: They roast their own coffee and it has a wonderful nutty flavor. You can grab a cup to go along with one of their homemade pastries or stay and enjoy breakfast in house.
