Great coffee, great location, excellent gelato! Service is OK. Not Starbucks friendly. Would be nice if they had service with a smile.

Treated my granddaughter and myself to this coffee shop, (I am a huge Starbucks fan) but wanted to experience something different.

We both enjoyed it very much. It... More

Nice coffee. A bit slow service, but they are making everything special. They have some snacks to go with the coffee

We ate breakfast here 2 out of 5 days. It was reasonable, tasty. Good coffee. A bit slow for service and they seemed a bit confused, but very friendly and delicious.

but I found it sour and unremarkable. Staff were efficient and pleasant. Provides a modest seating area and a good selection of pastries.

A nice little cafe not far from the main strip. This location is inside the hotel (Inn of Chicago). Not a lot of seating, but service was quick and for a fair price.

Iced latte I had was enjoyable. Way too warm outside to try a hot drink - hopefully come winter! Not super comfortable seating but who cares - the coffee is great and I will be back!

We stayed for a long weekend at the Inn of Chicago. Every morning before setting our on our daily Chicago exploration adventure, we'd stop in Lavazza for breakfast. Each time was better than the last. While the service was a bit slow (for food) it was worth the wait. Each sandwich, croissant, etc. was made fresh by order. It wasn't... More
