This place was unexpectingly a great place. I was greeted by Mike from behind the counter with a nice hello and friendly question of "have you been here before?" To me that makes any place a go to place. In this day in age folks aren't saying hello anymore and making you feel welcomed.
This place has a huge variety of teas that I didn't know existed. I am a coffee drinker and order my standard issue coffee black and worked on my laptop. This place beats your overcrowded and noisy starbucks.
The place smells like incense which at first was potent to me but I adjusted and of course it didn't bother me after a few minutes.
They have a minimal selection of pastry goodies. I tried the pumpkin chocolate chip bread which was really good. More quality than quantity in this place when it comes to the pastries. However, quality and good quantity of teas. They also do some sandwiches which I didn't order.
Eclectic collection of music, foods from around the world, and pictures for purchase. This place is great for the visitors to the Northshore of Chicago. Also good for folks working on laptops, reading books, and just relaxing.
I came in on a Tuesday at 1pm and stayed till 4pm. Super chill.
