Some say ours is just a Starbucks, but it’s a really different kind of Starbucks. And now, the staff has been recognized for it.

Our Roscoe Village neighborhood Starbucks just won the company’s award for “Creating the Coffeehouse Experience.” Executives from Seattle came to share the award with the manager, baristas, and even customers who were there.

Our café is in a converted drugstore and soda shoppe. So it has cushy diner-style booths and an old-fashioned counter with bar stools. There's even an old-timey red telephone booth.

The other side of the store has the usual comfy stuffed chairs, tables, and cozy fireplace.

And, last but not least, they have art on the walls from local artists.

If you’re looking for a different coffeehouse experience from this otherwise ubiquitous brand, visit our neighborhood Starbucks at 2023 W Roscoe St. (between Damen Ave & Seeley Ave.)
