Blacksmith functions as the Montrose coffee shop version of Cheers. If you live anywhere in the Loop, or go out to any restaurants, or if you just met someone for a date last night, there is a high probability you will run into them at Blacksmith. The coffee is excellent, and the food will keep you fueled up to either get work done or steel you for any awkward social encounters. The cafe usually feels like an ice box, so bring a light jacket. While the wifi signal is strong, there is a severe lack of outlets, so get charged up (mentally and emotionally) before you show up.
