Build Coffee review image

Build Coffee


This coffee shop doubles as a bookstore, one of those ancient places that existed back before Kindles. Build Coffee is located in the Experimental Station in Woodlawn, and being here feels a lot like working in your living room, but with better coffee and fewer cats trying to lay on your laptop. Come for lattes and wifi, and stay to finally finish reading that used copy of On The Road.
