Coffee & Tea
I have such wonderful coffee dreams about this place today. When I lived in Chicago this was our "special occasion" place to trek to and grab a cup while walking around the neighborhood. This specific location was Intelligentsia's original spot (opened in 1995) and has recently been renovated into a minimal and gorgeous space. Don't try and get a fancy beverage. Keep it simple here with a cup of coffee or an americano.
The Wormhole is unlike any coffee shop you've seen before. The coffee itself is incredible, but that isn't why I come to The Wormhole. The decor is like stepping back into an outrageously nostalgic time. Old Star Wars and Ghostbusters line the walls with plenty of games and other strange memorabilia. A DeLorean is even parked inside of the space. The furniture is mismatched and vintage with plenty of seating but not enough to compensate for their demand.
