16 Stellar All-Day Cafes in Chicago


[Via Eater Chicago] – Some days, there’s nothing better than finding a spot to hunker down for the whole day — a spot to drink coffee, get work done, do a little reading, and even hang out for dinner with a glass of wine or beer. The following Chicago cafes are perfect for exactly that, open for breakfast and lunch with exceptional coffee programs and a welcoming atmosphere to comfortably hang out for drinks and dinner when the sun sets.

Lonesome Rose 2101 N California Ave – At night, this spot from the same crew behind tiki wonderland Lost Lake becomes a taco haven for Logan Square-ites with margaritas and excellent cocktails abound. During the day, breakfast tacos, coffee, and plenty of windows make this place just right for settling in.

Colectivo Coffee 2261 N Milwaukee Ave – Outposts of the Milwaukee coffee import Colectivo have their spaces designed specifically for all-day lounging. The cafe menu serves up a solid breakfast and lunch, with choices for a light dinner. Plus, their own house beers round out the vibe for an early happy hour. Locations are in Lincoln Park, Logan Square, and Andersonville with more on the way.

Cafe Mustache 2313 N Milwaukee Ave – During the day, Cafe Mustache doles out coffee and sandwiches while freelancers fill the seats. But at night, this spot turns into a more lively watering hole with stools to belly up to the bar or a smattering of tables for a more intimate feel.

Same Day Café 2651 N Kedzie Blvd – This brunch favorite is open all day long through the week. Same Day Cafe specializes in interesting takes on fountain soda drinks and a comforting lineup of sandwiches that makes it an easy place to whittle away an afternoon.
