Overall
A real European cafe' in Chicago's Gold Coast

Feels just like being in Europe, Italy more exact since that is where Lavazza is from. Now there is nothing like real Italian espresso. I have tried several of the specialty coffees they offer and this is not only the best coffees I have had in a long time but the most innovative selection I have come across. The presentation of the beverages are creative - some are served in martini glasses - it is so nice not to have to deal with paper cups (unless in a rush).

They bake really nice muffins, scones and cookies in the cafe' and the ones I have tried have been very good and I am quite picky. They make the salads and sandwiches while you wait and the ones I have tried have been delicious - I am hooked on the fig marmalade, brie and prosciutto sandwich and a salad with smoked salmon. The prices are surprisingly low considering the food is made with quality ingredients - good value while eating healthy and fresh food.

The interior is modern Italian and the walls have cool shots taken by famous photographers. I even got my hands on the 2009 Lavazza calendar - photographed by Annie Leibovitz!

The staff that I have taken my orders and served me at the table has been courteous.

A very welcome edition to the Chicago scene.
