It’s work and coffee in the morning and dinner and drinks in the evening

Some days, there’s nothing better than finding a spot to hunker down for the whole day — a spot to drink coffee, get work done, do a little reading, and even hang out for dinner with a glass of wine or beer. The following Chicago cafes are perfect for exactly that, open for breakfast and lunch with exceptional coffee programs and a welcoming atmosphere to comfortably hang out for drinks and dinner when the sun sets.


There’s more than one reason that this Lettuce Entertain You restaurant has a few outposts. To name a few, an extremely accessible all-day menu makes a meal easy for everyone, an excellent coffee and pastry program makes it an easy quick stop, and the cozy design despite the expansive size means it’s easy to stay all day.
