Catch up with a friend over coffee at this adorable Humboldt Park coffee shop. They have a great "boozy steamers" list that includes a whiskey and cream, served in a coffee cup and topped with a bit of baking spice. It doesn't look like a traditional Irish coffee, but the whiskey comes in strong on first sip and ends with a great coffee note. $7.
Bloody Marys and mimosas not your thing in the morning? Get your morning buzz on with an Irish coffee, with hot coffee and whiskey topped with cream. Chicago has some really great ones. Try them at one of the city's best Irish pubs or top cocktail bars.
