This place is so good they have opened more locations! Cafecito is an amazing spot for coffee or lunch in Chicago. They have some of the best American and Cuban-style coffees. My favorite alternative to a regular latte from the plethora of chain shops downtown 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:)
The South Loop Location is the original, but you can easily visit their Loop or Gold Coast locations and get the same amazing experience.
