Just in time for Saturday’s snow forecast, Colectivo Coffee, the Milwaukee company that arrived in Chicago two years ago has opened a Wicker Park location with plenty of outdoor seating. There’s a ground-floor patio and a breezy area from the second-floor perch at the northeast corner of Damen and Division at 1211 N. Damen Avenue. This cafe also debuts a batch of vegan and vegetarian options for the company which already has four Chicago-area locations (Lincoln Park, Logan Square, Andersonville, and Evanston).
Besides a batch of coffee drinks, the shop also serves Colectivo’s own beer. There’s a fireplace for colder days, and a view of Damen looking west from the second floor. Take a tour of the space below as Colectivo joins a batch of Milwaukee imports (Safe House, Cousin’s Subs, Stone Creek Coffee) to all set up shop in Chicago.
