Gaslight Coffee Roasters

Owners Tristan Coulter and Zak Rye have taken their experience in the local coffee trade (both worked for Metropolis) and applied it to a rustic-hipster aesthetic (think reclaimed wood, vintage lanterns and requisite taxidermy). The space is quite nice for sipping a cup of pour-over coffee, made either from beans roasted in-house or from a rotating roster of guest roasters. Should all that caffeine need balancing, platters of Smoking Goose charcuterie, house-pickled veggies and Marion Street cheeses make for a solid snack.

Gaslight knows how to make a strong cup of coffee! Their lattés are delicious - although I was dissapointed they switched from almond milk to coconut milk which tastes somewhat metallic. They also offer pastries from the fantastic Floriole.

The decor here is fabulously eclectic taxidermy, all brick and leather chairs. If you can snag a seat on a weekend it is a perfect place to people watch on a busy corner.

Gaslight is a sweet little coffee shop on the corner of a bustling street in Logan Square. Sit by the window and people-watch or grab a quiet table. It's a great spot to collect your thoughts.

Gaslight is a quaint little coffee shop that used to be just a short walk away from my apartment. Now that I'm in Avondale, I find myself missing its cute little cafe counter more and more. The baristas know how to make a serious cup of almost anything that's dark and heavily caffeinated. It offers a great alternative to Intelligensia by Logan Theatre, and I actually prefer it. And where Mustache Coffee just down the street is a little more kooky and "indie," Gaslight is just plain nice.
