Cafe Jumping Bean
Where we've featured it
Cafe Jumping Bean is a neighborhood institution that’s been around since 1994. It’s colorful, with lots of local artwork, and a popular spot for coffee, pastries, and sandwiches. Come here to study or before work for a grab-and-go breakfast. And when you do, try their Mexican hot chocolate and a mollete, Mexican bolillo bread sliced open and topped with refried beans, cheese, salsa, and avocado. Their second location, ‘L’ Cafecito, is hidden right under the Damen Pink Line station and is a quick, walk-up-only spot for coffee if you’re looking for an iced horchata before catching the train.
Cafe Jumping Bean in Pilsen is offering carryout. Make sure to pick up one of their fantastic pastries while you’re there.
