The Zagat Review
The Dark Matter folks are behind this "cool" Humboldt Park caffeinator where "friendly" baristas provide "awesome" coffeehouse drinks crafted from house beans alongside a light cafe menu of sandwiches and sweets. A long wood bar, funky art and a backyard patio define the boho setting where hipsters hang and take advantage of the free Wi-Fi.

Wow Oh. My. WOW. Mayan Mocha. Absolutely delicious!!! The vibes and energy of the place is warming and welcoming, personally I enjoy the artsy feel. I get a "Fear the Loathing", vibe from some of the art work. They have a beautiful outside seating area too. The coffee has a beautiful aroma, taste, and me-oh-mighty-Boldness. The staff was as helpful as can be considering how busy it was around 9. They have dairy alternatives too; Almond or Soy¿

Awesome coffee shop. Ground level is good place to hangout and be social. Upstairs is a good place to work/study. Coffee and snacks are pretty good and cheaper than some of the other coffee shops around. Staff is friendly and service is fast. I recommend it.

I'm embarrassed to say that I had never been or heard of Star Lounge! It's now one of my favorite coffee shops. There is a long bar to sit at and get refills. There are several tables with outlets. And there is an outdoor area in the back! It's not too quiet, so this is not the place to go for calls or serious, reflective work. But anything else - this is the spot. Dark Matter coffee is delicious, too.
