-- formerly known as Pickwick Coffee, is tucked away in an alley next to another favorite spot of mine--Just Salad. I first discovered the shop last winter during a photoshoot with Tyus Maciel ((see photos in The Archive)). You can see why I became obsessed-- This spot is the PERFECT photo op for coffee lovers. You're probably wondering "Is the product is worthy of its aesthetically pleasing reputation?" YES. Hero coffee is the place to go if you want unique flavors and quality beans. My personal favorite is the Lavender Latte, floral yet sweet and so unique. They do have a food menu that I haven’t had the pleasure of diving into yet but it looks delicious as well (includes items such as breakfast, sandwiches, and salads).
Hero coffee has 5 locations total in the Chicago area. Chicago Ave, Jackson Ave, Bucktown (Western ave), Printer’s Row (Dearborn Street.) & Roscoe Village. They also sell their own beans in stores and online on their website and on amazon.
