Chicago Grind Cafe-Cozy and Industrial

This is one of my favorite cafes on the North side. Jim Dababnah, who also owns Thai Aroma, took over the location in 2014. The calming atmosphere sticks out the most here! Chicago Grind pulls together the things I love most in life- good tea, delicious coffee, tasty sweets and food and books! Coming here has always helped me relax and lifted my spirits on bad days!

The decor is a little industrial, but very welcoming, with dark wood tables, leather couches and a marble countertop.

This table and delightful clock are my favorite.

The lovely couches!

They serve Bow Truss coffee and Benjamin teas. The daily specials written on a chalkboard outside give it a great touch! They also have $1 refills on their branded travel mug!

It’s just the right amount of noise, chill music and good decor. The books, communal table, specials and wonderful customer service really pull together the community feel.
