Being a foodie city, Chicago has tons of everything to offer: loads of pizza places, numerous Michelin starred restaurants, overwhelming amount of fast casual restaurants, & of course tons of coffee shops. So what makes La Colombe stand out from the others? For starters, upon entering you’ll immediately feel more like a friend of the staffs than a customer. Their welcoming, warm, & outgoing personalities make it an enjoyable experience even if it’s just stopping in on your way to work.
