Address: 1039 West Granville Ave, Chicago, Ill.
If you’ve been in Chicago long, or longer than a few hours, you might have already heard of Metropolis. Brewing in-house roasted coffee and crack-like red line espresso and offering hoosier mama pies and cakes, it is a neighborhood staple, full of locals and Loyola study buddies, all three rooms of it. This place is such a landmark you’d swear you’d seen Clark Kent running into the bathroom. But maybe you just need more coffee.
