Blue Bottle Coffee

Blue Bottle is a much-hyped (now somewhat ubiquitous) coffee chain from the Bay Area, with only two locations in Chicago. The one at Wolf Point Plaza has their usual pour-over coffee featuring smooth, low-acid brew, coffee drinks like the chicory-laden NOLA, and a few pastries, but the real draw is a large patio overlooking the river. Inside, there’s plenty of seating spread out across multiple rooms, wifi, and a quiet jazzy soundtrack to help make drafting your mid-year SMART goals more tolerable. Seek Blue Bottle out when high-maintenance caffeine is the only thing that’ll help you be your most productive self.
