The Coffee & Tea Exchange

Everything about this East Lakeview spot is inviting, from the aroma that rises from the squat wooden coffee barrels to the creaking floors to the colorful hand-labeled tea jars that stand in charmingly cluttered arrangements on shelves and countertops. Don’t let the laid-back atmosphere fool you though; doing its thing since 1975, Coffee & Tea Exchange knows from tea, offering up interesting herbals like milk thistle and refreshing blends like blood orange black. Bonus: The teas here can be purchased in small quantities, a good way to audition pricier varieties before committing.
