Glencoe Roast Coffee in Glencoe (of course) is one of many independent coffee stars, like Coffee Speaks in Highland Park or Reprise in Hubbard Woods, with a great local feel, great coffee and pastry selection and a a friendly staff as well.

Why bother with Starbucks when you can pop into Glencoe Roast and have a lovely cup of tea or coffee without the corporate same same? Nice fresh pastries, lovely crema designs. I much prefer this to the place down the street. :)

Great local cafe, with far superior coffee to SBUX (Intelligentsia). Owner is super friendly and the cafe has the best outdoor seating in all of Glencoe.

This local shop does a great job competing with Starbucks. Good drinks, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere. It has much better sidewalk tables/chairs when the weather is nice. A really pleasant place to have coffee or tea. Great for impromptu neighbor meetings, as well as business...More
