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.

First off, one of my favorite places to go for the coffee itself. Also a super dope setup, nice artsy environment. I don't consume alcohol, but this place makes me feel a little more included in the "bar scene" without the ridicule of not partaking in the toxic beverages, coffee gets me high enough. If you like caffine, art and a huge variety of personality types, this is the spot. It has a pretty spacious patio area when weather permits, which also caters to both smokers and non smokers, I like the balance. Smokers have been shunned, but drinking has been promoted like it's medicine. Pardon my rant, all I'm really trying to say is that this is an awesome hangout, go there. Now. And all the time. 😁

Awesome coffee place! Very cool atmosphere. I can just go there and get a bunch of work done(free WiFi). The coffee is amazing, I usually get the regular mocha. They also have a spicy cinnamon mocha which is pretty bomb as well. It is 5 bucks per cup which can get pricy if you go every day but they are nice and will re fill it with coffee for free to-go. I also use their printing service in case I need to sign and scan a document for work or whatever.

Best chai tea latte I have ever had. It's spicy and creamy and the perfect temperature. Highly recommend. Also, the vegan chocolate muffin (no I'm not vegan) is exquisite. Great atmosphere, but the staff are slightly unapproachable. Still coming back.
