Best coffee in Chicago? The La Colombe Cafe

Warehouse district! Restaurant corridor! Warehouse district! Restaurant corridor! Either way you look at it, Randolph and Halsted in Chicago is one of the best areas to store your … whatever, or find the newest and best places in the city to eat. But even better than that, you can spend a long and quiet afternoon sipping what is undoubtedly the best coffee you’ve ever tasted served by the friendly and eclectic staff.

Ironically situated across from the corridor’s only Starbucks, La Colombe has its own coffee roaster – a beautiful and interesting artifact unto itself – a music selection influenced by whomever is working the counter that day, and a table with long benches in back for the various artists and architects who inhabit the area. Word of joy: the milk they use is from an area farm and is so delicious, you’ll never want anything else in your latte. Word of warning though: there’s no wifi.
