Get a side of “feel-good” with your Intelligentsia coffee and homemade cranberry muffin knowing that the dollar you shoved in the tip jar is going to a different local, nonprofit organization each month. But more than just a fueling station, this café is a vital community node: an outlet for the artists and musicians (performances on most Fridays) in Rogers Park.
