The more I've been on my monthly mocha journey, the more I realize there are SO. MANY. amazing cafes in Chicago! And...I love each one of them!
I came across Swada by accident. I was walking through the West Loop to another cafe, but I'm so glad I got sidetracked and found this little hidden cafe.
I love the artistic, skater vibes. (I secretly wanted to be a skater for a hot minute during my high-school days.) From what I could see is that it's a very popular work space. They share a larger area with Green Street Smoked Meats.
This west loop find is close to street parking and would be great if you're looking for a hip meeting space. Their coffee is soooo good and their Doughnut Vault doughnut selection is pretty irresistible.
