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.

By far the best coffee in the entire city. It's really not even close (though Ipsento is worth a mention). Crushes Dark Matter, Metropolis, La Colombe, Dollop, and especially Bow Truss and Intelligentsia. Vibe is not for everyone and parking is usually a nightmare, but the coffee (both pour-over and espresso) is transcendental. The only shop I've had that was better is Slate in Seattle, and that is extraordinarily high praise.
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.
