North Center

It’s a coffee shop with vegan tendencies, but doesn’t have that kumbaya vibe of spots such as Heartland Café. Instead, it appears to be just another coffee shop. The vegan breakfast sandwich (tofu fried “egg” and vegan sausage) will never pass for what it tries to emulate, but it’s a respectable (and filling) attempt; the vegan muffins do a better job of standing in for the real thing. But at the end of the day, it’s not the food you’ll come here for: It’s the Chemex coffee, brewed so smooth and silky it’s well worth the eight-minute wait to get it.
