This place is casual and fun! The coffee is ALWAYS fresh and the antioxidant green juice (with apple or cherries) is better than my home made! The server was friendly and the food is made just a few feet away from the tables (only about...More

I've been going to Kopi since I was 10 years old and grew up in Andersonville. While it is on the pricier side (though not for the area), the fact that it's a local business with great food and service totally makes up for that....More

The eggs are cooked in steam and loses a little of the flavor that you can add with the spices. The good part is that everything is very health oriented. The baguettes are very good. The vegetarian sausage is better than most. I splurged on...More

I met friends for a work/catch up meeting over dinner. I ordered the Sunrise on a Shingle. My friends ordered the black bean burger and the veggie burrito. All three were great. I loved the steamed eggs and the vegan gravy. The atmosphere in the...More

The upfront disclaimer: I grew up in the Haight Ashbury, though rather after its hippie heydey, so I have a certain fondness for restaurants such as this. (Just to give you an idea of the general ambiance.) And I don't mind coming out smelling like...More

The atmosphere is pretty awesome; quirky fun stuff on the bookshelves, neat little store area in back. They serve alcohol. Wouldn't expect that but it's great. They also serve until midnight, which we really appreciated. Our adorable bubbly blonde college-aged server literally skipped around the...More

Anyone who is a vegetarian or vegan needs to visit Kopi when in Chicago. It was hard to choose something on the menu because everything looked so good! I was really happy with the soy burger I ordered and the kombucha was so refreshing. The...More

I understand that this is a small business but the ventilation here is inadequate. Aside from being 90 degrees at all times you also leave the place smelling like a Sherpa who hasn't left his Nepalese kitchen in a month. I can't quite explain it...More

If you don't like waiting in a line for your latte, try this. Good coffee, light bites and desserts, also drinks. Seating at conventional tables or on the floor on pillows. Kids love the pillow experience. The traveler's shop is a selection of soaps, scarves,...More

The falafel plate with generous amount of pita, and rancheros with veggie sausage plus mimosa, Roman chai, and coffee ran $45. Atmosphere is grunge. Service is sparing. Very busy noonish on Sunday.
