Have been to Third Place many, many times over the past few years, and still love it. Great neighborhood, funky place with an excellent, mostly vegetarian menu and wonderful coffee drinks, teas, pastries, cookies etc. Indoor and outdoor seating, though the noise levels on Glenwood Ave at rush hour make the outdoor seating less desirable. An eclectic crew of employees, some of whom could really use a safe food handling class, but who are mostly friendly. This ain't your Starbucks--don't expect to be in and out with your coffee in 3 minutes, especially at peak times. One person making the drinks, one taking the money and possibly making food, sometimes a third. One complaint is with their food prep area. Employees take money then make food with no handwash sink or sanitizer in between (or at least, in multiple visits, I've not seen one). So you might want to steer clear of the sandwiches and salads, and stick with baked items and drinks. Weird hours for a coffee place, and the hours often change--call ahead at night to ensure they're open.
