Eat Drink Look Listen

We started off as a small coffee house in the lakeview neighborhood over 25 years ago. From that starting point the owners, Michael and Helen Cameron, expanded their business to become a restaurant, a music venue, and they recently opened greenstar brewing, the first certified organic brewery in Illinois. The brewery is at our original location at Clark and Grace.

What Others Are Saying

It was a pleasant experience! The beautiful park outside with their big open window gives quite a scene. The donuts and coffee were enjoyable, but it does cost higher than usual. I and the register employee can't hear each other very well because of the barrier at the cash register, but they were nice enough. They're pricey and had a little uppity vibe, too.
