Time Out says

The coffee shop in the cool new Freehand Hotel is the second outpost of Cafe Integral. The first is in New York, and like the original, the Chicago spot specializes in Nicaraguan beans. The coffee menu is pretty simple, with drip, pour-over and espresso drinks, like an excellent latte. There's a tiny bar with uncomfortable stools, or a large table to spread out at, though your other option is to meander into the larger lobby and relax on the couches there. It's dark, but a more comfortable spot if you're eating quickly, and you should—there's a small but thoughtful food menu, with mostly breakfast items, salads and toast, including an avocado smash, toast piled with shaved radishes, sprouts and pickled shallots.
