Cafecito Chicago

Cafecito – Hidden Loop gem

This place is so good they opened a second location! One of my go to spots for coffee or lunch in the Loop is Cafecito. They have the best American and Cuban-style coffee. My favorite alternative to a regular latte from the plethora of chain shops in the area is their café con leche which combines a decadent shot of espresso with real cane sugar and whole milk. If you’re not a coffee drinker they have one of the best hot chocolates ever! 

The real deal here is their sandwiches. Unlike other sandwiches Cafecito’s sandwiches are similar to a panini, but instead they are pressed to lock in the flavor and not leave any residual burn marks. Although they are famous for their cubano, my personal favorite is the jerk chicken sandwich packed with spices and flavorful juicy goodness. And if you’ve never had a cubano, GET IT!  You won’t regret it:)

Be sure to check out their second location too, located at 7 N Wells, in the loop as well.
