It’s always like that when you go to a new city. Doesn’t matter if it’s just for a short visit or on a longer term – that feeling of excitement of discovering something new is always there.
In my case, that feeling usually strikes the most when I enter a new coffee shop. Have you ever been there?
When you make the first step inside and the smell of fresh coffee mixes with the friendly voices of happy people who are enjoying their cup of Joe.. I’m getting thrills just writing this.
Not that I don’t want to discover the city, the museums or parks and monuments… It’s just – the coffee shops tell a story of that city as well.
And I want to hear that particular one.
So, when we moved here, what I did was little (ok, not so little) research of the best coffee shops in the Chicago area.
That was my way of getting to know the city. And that’s how I discovered Dollop Coffee Co.
Dollop Coffee Co. is a pioneer on the city’s coffee scene – it’s there since 2005 and it has several locations throughout Chicago.
This one was located in Streeterville, where delicious Metropolis coffee is served in a modern yet comfortable interior . I must confess the place hooked me with its relaxed, neighborhood style and amazing coffee. It is a perfect place to relax after a stroll in the city.
Did I mention that they’ve recently opened their own bakery shop ? I can’t wait to check it out!
I would like to finish with a quote borrowed from Dollop website:
Life is good, and your coffee should be too!
