But First Coffee

Neighborhood News

IMG_1879.jpgIf you are like me, I need coffee in the morning before I can function or really begin to do anything.  Big Shoulders Coffee is a great local coffee shop located in River West. They have fresh roasted coffee drinks, whole beans for purchase and pastries to enjoy with your caffeinated beverage. If you purchase a bag of coffee beans they offer you a free drink and they offer to grind the coffee beans.  

The last time I was at Big Shoulders, I already had too much caffeine for the day and I declined the free beverage.  The friendly barista instead gave me a coupon for one free beverage then next time I am in the coffee shop.  Another great feature about this coffee shop is that it’s a commuter friendly. You can get a cup of coffee inside Big Shoulders while keeping track of the next train or bus which are both tracked on tv monitors within the cafe. This is a great feature to keep in mind when the weather is too hot to wait at the bus stop or too cold in the winter.
