Coffee Shops in the Chicago Loop

Does the heart of Chicago have coffee shops? That’s a no-brainer –of course, it does. Whether you’re touring for the architecture, shopping on State Street, or heading to work, you see people walking around with coffee cups with so many different logos on them. There are so many hidden gems when it comes to coffee in the Chicago Loop.

Goddess and the Baker

You’ll notice several Goddess and the Baker locations when you enter downtown Chicago. They’re an upcoming local classic with a focus on quality baked goods and even daytime cocktails. The fullest food they have on their menu is their egg-based breakfasts. In the Loop, they have two locations –one on Madison and one on Wabash.

Fairgrounds Coffee And Tea

Situated right in the Athletic Association Hotel and right across from Millenium Park is Fairgrounds. A Midwestern American fairground as a theme is a great idea, and incorporating it into the menu results in such items as funnel cake is available. This is actually the first location they opened in 2017. Since then, Fairgrounds has been another local coffee success story.
