Whether you’re a West Loop native or are new to the area entirely, there’s always a new spot in the neighborhood to try. From restaurants to bars to workout spots, the West Loop is constantly attracting new, trendy businesses for locals and visitors alike. There’s no more important new (or established!) business, perhaps, than your local coffee shop.

5 Must Try West Loop Coffee Shops

In a neighborhood known for food, there’s always a new caffeination station to explore. From cozy hole-in-the-walls to trendy new spots, the range of coffee options is as unique as the neighborhood itself.

Some of our favorites in West Loop include:

  1. Fairgrounds Coffee and Tea: Featuring both fantastic, inventive drinks and a full breakfast menu inside trendy digs, Fairgrounds is a great option to meet a friend for a bite.
  2. Vietfive: As the new kid on the block in West Loop, Vietfive has its fair share of virality on social media for its cool space and unique drinks, like the Iced Ube Latte, which is a gorgeous shade of purple.
  3. Morgan Street Cafe: Morgan Street is a humble coffee and breakfast spot right off Mary Bartelme park that serves both breakfast and lunch, as well as a pretty expansive coffee menu. This is a great go-to for a quick breakfast or a hangover cure.
  4. Ground Up: There’s nothing better than a coffee shop that also roasts their own coffee – and with an expansive, beautiful space and in-house roasting, Ground Up has the best of both worlds. If you need to impress an out-of-town friend or serious coffee drinker, Ground Up is our pick.
  5. FROTH: Could there be anything better than “a cocktail approach to coffee?” We think not. With a serious approach to both coffee cocktails (AKA lattes) and actual cocktails as well as a full kitchen, FROTH is another favorite newcomer to the West Loop coffee scene.

No matter which coffee shop you call your favorite, the West Loop and neighboring Fulton Market always have plenty of caffeine options to offer its residents.
