Tucked away near the Biograph Theater and numerous bars, The Bagelers Coffeehouse can be easy to miss but should not be overlooked. Along with serving great coffee, Bagelers, as its name implies, is also known for its fresh bagels served daily. With a laid-back atmosphere and quiet interior, Bagelers is a welcome retreat from the hustle of Lincoln Avenue. Students from nearby DePaul can often be found studying away inside.

While they’re known for their French pastries and elaborate cakes, Vanille Patisserie also makes a great cup of coffee. Coffee at Vanille is just as much about the presentation and delivery of the coffee as it is the coffee itself. After ordering at the counter, your coffee is brought to you in a giant mug on a silver platter. The simple yet classy indoor seating is great for escaping the cold during the winter. During the warmer months, the outdoor seating along Clark Street provides a great place to sip your coffee and people-watch.
