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.

Italian in design, American in cuisine, this coffee lounge flies against the traditional aesthetic of the Drake Hotel. – In Short The historic Drake Hotel makes a peculiar home for the very modern cafe concept, the first of its kind for the popular coffee chain, taking up residence there. The Italian-inspired lounge departs from the formal feel of the elegant dame that has welcomed visitors for years to Michigan Avenue, boasting fresh white bucket seats accented with red, a color also splashed in swirls on cafe tables. Cylindrical light fixtures hang from the ceilings and a coffee "bar" looks more like a real bar. The drink of choice is premium Italian espresso, with contemporary American food as accents.
