The Little brother to Heritage Bicycles, Heritage Outpost in Uptown focuses exclusively on their own roasted coffee, which they roast right here in Chicago. The coffee options at Heritage Outpost are straightforward, with drip coffee, lattes and other traditional drinks. The drip coffee was smooth and blended savory and sweet flavors together; however, in their other drips like their Legacy Espresso, Tres Santos and Anjilanaka you can taste hints of red apples, apricot and other sweet flavors. Just be sure to ask which ones they have available that day. We recommend trying the traditional drip coffee and a small treat. Their menu changes daily but you can expect to find a muffins, cookies, scones, quiche and a variety of gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options, all from Southport Grocery. If you head in on the weekend, they'll have doughnuts from Something Sweet available too.
The space is tiny, so there’s limited seating with a couch and a handful of small tables with wooden benches and metal chairs. Even though it’s located in the lobby of an apartment building, the space has a rustic charm and similar décor to the original store, such as a bike hanging up on the wall and a wooden counter to match the original store's. The décor is warm and inviting, making guests feel at home. However, the shop also features a walk-up window for bikers, dog-walkers or anyone on the go.
