Monthly Mocha - Firecakes

This month I visited Firecakes in River North. It's a little shop on Hubbard that sells coffee, donuts and fresh squeezed lemonade. Thank you Jennifer for always posting about this place. Your posts always looked so good, that I had to try it for myself.

Now, let me tell you, I had the best donut ever at this little shop. It was an almond joy donut, and it was AMAZING! 

I know I’m all about the mochas, but this is the place to go for a donut. 

I had an iced mocha on my visit as well, and it was great. It was a warm day, so it was the perfect way to quench my thirst. They aren't really known for their coffees, but for a shop that's focused on donuts, this place has great mochas. 

They don’t have inside seating, which will be a bummer come the winter months, but their little patio is really cute and inviting, even as someone who doesn’t really like to dine outside. (This is a thing between Michael and I, because he is an outside diner, and I’m not.)

I don't think this is an ideal spot for a client meeting, but it would be nice for a stop after an engagement session to treat them to something special. 

I like that they're open late. They start selling at 7am and they stay open until 10:30pm, or until they sell out.

I'll definitely be back here again if I find myself in River North…and you should try it too! It's worth the stop.
