If you work best in an environment where everyone is being very productive (or at least looks like it), try working at Rivers and Roads in Edgewater. Its proximity to Loyola University means that it’s common to find students studying, working on group projects, and typing like they're competing in a Hackathon. They have some great pastries and bagels from Edgewater bakery, Edge of Sweetness, as well as giant cookies from Bake Me Wild.
