This South Side coffee shop has a large porch and backyard complete with nighttime fire pits, and is home to some of the city’s best food trucks, including Pueblo Viejo for tacos and Leroy & Lewis, a super non-traditional barbecue truck that we really like. Between their beer, coffee, wine, and cocktail selection, you can basically drink here for the entire day, and as if this place couldn’t get any more utopian, dogs are allowed both inside and outside.
