a week in Chicago, bar & coffee questions

Klary | Apr 14, 2011 03:00 AM

Hi all,
My husband and I will be in Chicago for a week, our first time. Thanks to the advice and reviews on this board, I have lots of eating and drinking adventures already planned (from cocktails at the Violet Hour to dinner at Topolobampo).

We're staying in an apartment on West Illinois and I would love some recs in the neighborhood for 2 specific things we like to do: have coffee and tea in a nice coffeeplace in the morning, where there might be newspapers lying around, where people are reading or working or just grabbing something on their way to work,

and, a bar, not too fancy or hip, just a relaxed place with maybe some interesting beers, where we could have a drink before ging out to dinner or after we get back from dinner for a nightcap.

Thanks!
