Chicago Coffee Shop

Cafe Urbano (Chicago)

July 7, 2023

Lots of locals, from young people to retirees, come here for a quiet cup of coffee. There’s low ambient noise…quiet conversations and maybe some lofi music piping quietly through the speakers. The aromas of freshly baked pastries and boiling coffee wafts through the air.  It’s like wrapping yourself up in a blanket of coffee shop goodness. It’s hardly the kind of place where businesspeople have “important” lunch meetings. People go there to chill and unwind.

When the weather is nice, they offer outdoor seating and service beneath a beautiful pergola. Though the patio’s hidden location on a leafy residential street doesn’t provide much in the way of scenery (unless you find the sight of passing cars exciting), the atmosphere is as relaxing as it gets.

For food, many customers choose the Breakfast Burrito because it is so popular and delicious, but I like the Avocado Toast. Cafe Urbano’s is centered around a pico-di-gayo they produce in-house, and it is stellar. This is in contrast to the fancy-schmancy avocado toast accouterments (ahem, shaved radish) so commonly seen at other coffee shops. It’s a special delicious twist unique to Cafe Urbano, and it’s reason enough to give the place a try.

I just don't want to look back and think "I could've eaten that."
