City News Cafe


City News Cafe says
City News Café is located inside City Newsstand, Chicago's largest magazine store for over 30 years. You can enjoy great Uncommon Coffee Roasters coffee -- every cup made to order -- while perusing a stack of magazines, from the familiar to the most unusual and unexpected. There is also a nice selection of treats available, both sweet & savory, including several vegan and gluten-free items. Free Wi-Fi, occasional live music and book signings, and their signature house-made dark chocolate truffles are just a few more reasons to visit this comfy Portage Park spot.

Inspired truffles and coffee beans, accommodating small menu (vegan, GF, etc), and magazines galore from around the world. Music on designated weekend days/evenings up the ante even more. A neighborhood gem!

I love City News Cafe! The employees make sure that you get what you actually want! There is quite a variety to choose from and you can try something new every day and not be bored with flavors! Stop in and try them; you'll be glad you did!
