Situated cozily in the Lincoln Square neighborhood, you can still find that small coffee shop you want to patronize even among the dozens of Starbucks. The Grind survives with locally roasted Intelligentsia coffee, delicious sandwiches and friendly service. Local art (usually quite good) hangs from the walls. Sometimes hard to find a table, it's still worth coming for their filling bagel sandwiches or caprese with smoked mozzarella. Good place to grab a pastry.
