Perfectly situated in the heart of Lincoln Park with heavy foot traffic. Located on the site of a former coach house and car port. Built new from the ground-up, completed in 2008. This sophisticated coffee bar is the first and only tenant of the property. A modern interpretation of the traditional European coffeehouses of Vienna & Paris. Phenomenal space both inside and out. Beautifully built-out and fully-equipped with brand name top-of-the-line equipment. Coveted patio in the city.
Great neighborhood spot to work, study, read, play a game, listen to music or meet up with friends. Known for serving the very best in handcrafted coffee, espresso, tea and eats from locally sourced vendors. A higher quality alternative to the chain stores. There is no other coffee house/sandwich shop like this in the area!
Growth & Expansion:
A real gem. Ideal location. Local favorite. The current ownership has NOT spent any money advertising the business. A new owner could easily expand the current customer base easily by increasing its offerings, catering to nearby businesses, adding signage to the building and implementing social media advertising. Can also expand the use of the 2nd floor space for private events, business meetings, luncheons, bridal showers, birthday parties, post-wedding brunches, condo board meetings, brewing classes and more.
