We are local people who have built a coffee bar that reflects our values. Milk from a family farm. Almond and soy options. Regular and gluten-free pastries from local bakers. Blended coffee drinks and fruit smoothies.

Free wifi. Event space in the lower level.
And, of course, excellent coffee from a company that compensates their growers fairly.

Join us for a cup!



We host an open mic every month on a Friday from 7:30 to 10:30 pm.  We have a piano accompanist, Mark Burnell, who coordinates the evening and will play any music you bring (Mark also has an extensive song collection with music for you to choose from).  When you arrive at open mic, give Mark your name and he'll add you to the performance list.  If you don't want to sing, we'd still love to have you join us!  Call us to find out when the next open mic is – 708-689-8896.  You can also follow us on facebook for the lastest information!
