The Tea and Coffee Exchange is one of the few coffee shops in the city that roasts their own coffee beans. They used to roast the beans in the back of the café but have since moved to a warehouse in the city to keep up with the high demand. Today, you are still able to get a wide variety of coffee or tea-based drinks at the café as well as tea leaves and grounded coffee beans. The Tea and Coffee Exchange does offer outdoor seating, however, those who want to sit inside are out of luck as the space where tables should be has been replaced by giant barrels of tea leaves and coffee beans.

Like Tea and Coffee Exchange, Asado Coffee Company also roasts its own beans for their coffee drinks and are a favorite among coffee aficionados throughout the city. The café is committed to green coffee sourcing and buys their coffee beans from companies who pay their workers fair wages, making it both delicious and ethical.

Just off Clark Street on Roscoe lies Two Hearted Queen. The café shares the building with a Laundromat and consequently, can be very easy to miss. Two Hearted Queen is very spacious with rooms of tables and comfy chairs that seem to go on forever. The relaxed setting is a great place to get away from the crowd often found in Wrigleyville.
