This little gem just celebrated their 20th anniversary and that success is a testimony to it's great character and food. They were also in the final 7 of the "Best Cafe in North America" for the Central Division, last weekend, where they tied for 4th! Plus...they were also on the "Rachel Ray Show" as well as Adam Richman's - "Best Sandwich in America" playoffs for Chicago! The cafe is actually 2 buildings, side by side, one is now the cafe and the other is the sandwich operation, though it's all connected by their p.o.s. system, so it doesn't matter which side you order on you will get coffee/tea and food brought to you. 2 stores with seating on 2 levels AND a huge patio complete with a big ol' shade tree! Millions of different coffee & tea drinks, about a 100 loose leaf teas to choose from, sandwiches named after books and novels, such as "The Old Man & the Sea" for their tuna salad sandwich, etc, etc. Awesome place! AND it is all located in two vintage, period decorated, 1890's row houses in Lincoln Park...wood floors, tin ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and hundreds of antiques surround you. The only drawback is that you have to exit the building and re-enter next door to get your coffee/tea, but they share a common wall so it's literally right next door. They say they will eventually be connected though at some point. The funkiness makes it unique and cool though, kind of like Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Plus the staff is super nice and down to earth...Go PIG we love you!!
