A new coffee shop from the owner of popular Wicker Park cafe Wormhole, is now open in Logan Square. Like Wormhole, which is known for its 1980s movie posters and Back To The Future-style DeLorean, the West Logan Square cafe at 3431 W. Fullerton Avenue has a theme. For the new spot, simply known as Halfwit Coffee Roasters, the theme is the Cold War era space race between the Americans and Soviets.
Unlike Wormhole, the Logan Square space doubles as a roasting facility and training lab, making it a headquarters of sorts for owner Travis Schaffner’s coffee wholesaler, Halfwit Coffee Roasters. Expect large communal tables, free WiFi, pastries and, of course, freshly roasted Halfwit coffee.
Halfwit supplies the coffee at Logan Square’s Damn Fine Coffee Bar, Rogers Park’s Smack Dab and Wicker Park’s Scone City. The new cafe gives Schaffner and his team more brand recognition.
Take a tour of the space below. Halfwit is now open.
Halfwit Coffee Roasters, 3431 W. Fullerton Avenue., is now open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
