Mmm, That's Good: 10 Of Chicago's Best Coffee Shops

:UPDATE: This story was originally published on January 18.
Personal office, first-date spot, gossipy gathering place…the simple coffee shop can be anything you want it to be. Even so, there's a certain formula that turns the average (cup of) Joe establishment into a welcoming, java-sippin' respite. And because we're always looking for the ultimate bean buzz, we scoped out 10 of the best cafes to keep you going from 9-to-5 — and way beyond — one mug at a time.
You'll love listening to live music while sipping on a caffeinated concoction (with a house-made syrup, no less) at Andersonville's Coffee Studio. And for a spot that feels like a friend's to-die-for pad, you can't beat the geek-chic surroundings at The Wormhole. So, while we can't help you with your TPS reports — or the company you keep — hopefully these second homes will keep you perky through it all.
