This sleek space is the Chicago coffee purveyor’s first café to offer meals with its high-grade caffeine. For lunch you might find an herbal confit of halibut on a soft biscotto-like segment of bread or a mushroom ravioli that balances earthy and al dente. At dinner the chalkboard menu makes room for comfort foods like tender meat loaf atop creamy masheds and juicy pulled-pork sliders with a veil of smoked mozzarella and chile-flecked purple slaw. Desserts come from Cake Monkey (maker of a fine banana bread pudding) and Bottega Louie. Ordering at the counter can be awkward; unless you want their famous coffee with your meal, you’ll have to queue up again after eating. A trio of beer taps are on hand if coffee isn't your thing.
