Our Favorite Places

If you’re looking to get your java fix on, you’re in luck! Logan Square has more than a dozen cafes and a number of incredibly good coffee shops; Gaslight (Debra’s favorite!), New Wave, La Boulangerie…the list is long…and the coffee is always superb– and all are great places to work from remotely while enjoying a strong cup of joe and a delicate pastry.

Daisies – Located on Milwaukee Avenue, Daisies has some of our favorite dishes that include beet agnolotti with smoked trout roe and their scrumptious black truffle ravioli with cauliflower and ricotta. Daisies stands out from other eateries in Logan Square because it strongly caters to vegetarian cuisine, with meatier plates sprinkled in here and there. Additionally, Daisies has meal kits are available for curbside pick up during the current shelter in place restrictions.

Wolfbait and B-girls is a gem of a local boutique and treasure trove that showcases the cheeky wares of more than 250 local artisans as well as Chicago-based fair-trade companies, Wolfbait highlights our city’s local talent. We LOVE their cute tote bags, quirky trinkets, and the locally sourced beauty product lines showcased in the shop.

Lost Lake is Logan Square’s most esteemed tiki bar. Upon entering, guests are immersed in a rocky and leafy grotto, where you can expect delicious (and strong!) drinks. They offer large format drinks, like tiki bowls that you can share with your crew, or you can order single servings of their famous banana daiquiri. Pro tip: when visiting this tropical hideout, try to snag a bar or table seat during earlier hours or on weeknights, as Lost Lake is notorious for drawing crowds.

Just south of Logan Boulevard, on the 2500 North Block of Kedzie Boulevard, stumble upon Lula Cafe, a classically charming farm to table philosophy-based eatery. Their patio is beautiful for drinking craft cocktails during the warm Chicago summers. Make sure to explore the historical Logan Square monument across the roundabout from Lula Cafe while you are in the area!
