Coffee and other eats near N. Racine and Wrightwood
If you're in the mood for a bit of a walk, stroll south half a mile or so on Racine and hang a right on Webster. Floriole Café & Bakery has good coffee, outstanding pastries and lovely soups/salads/sandwiches. I had cream of nettle soup there a couple of weeks ago and it was so delicious that I'm still thinking about it.
An Italian venue that I have enjoyed in the past (have not been recently though) is nearby - Rose Angelis. There is also a good upscale venue nearby called Sprout. For breakfast/brunch I have heard good things about Batter & Berries but have not yet dined there myself. There is a Starbucks right by Racine & Wrightwood, but not sure about non-chain cafes.
